Greenview Area Improvements Project
As part of the Greenview Area Improvements project, we are improving pedestrian safety, adding pathway and sidewalk connections, and creating an interim use pop-up community park for everyone to enjoy. These enhancements will improve mobility for people who walk, wheel and drive and will complete the missing links in our mobility network.
The upgrades are required due to the age and condition of the existing system. They will create safer pedestrian access to the business in the area and accommodate future development in the area.
This project is part of the Established Areas Growth and Change Strategy. It supports established communities where growth and change are happening. The Strategy recommends reinvestment that will support citizens and businesses in areas that are experiencing growth and change. Public realm improvement projects will improve or upgrade infrastructure within communities experiencing growth and change.
These improvements will encourage people to explore and spend time in the spaces within their communities and support continued reinvestment in communities.
Community engagement is complete and the designs for the area are underway. We are currently working on the final construction drawings. Once complete our team will hire a contractor to start construction. Timelines will be confirmed once the contractor is onboarded. We anticipate construction will start in summer 2022.
The below conceptual map reflects the missing sidewalks pathway improvements, and intersection crossing improvements planned for 2022 construction. The below map locations are under review as we determine the feasibility of each location based on cost and design constraints.

40 Avenue N.E. temporary park space
We are enhancing City vacant land at Centre Street N and 40 Avenue N.E. to create a pop-up park for interim use. This Park improvement will increase activity and create stronger community connections.

A pop-up park involves activating a public space to build a park that the public can use for interim use. The benefits of a pop-up park include a convenient way to add parks to underutilized public spaces for everyone to enjoy.
The pop-up park being created at City vacant land at Centre Street N and 40 Avenue N.E. will be for interim (temporary) use. The long term vision of the Green Line LRT project is to go further north than the current stage one plan that stops at 16 Avenue N. Therefore, the park use will need to change when the Green Line LRT project is expanded further north. There is no set date for this work at this time.
A What We Heard report is available online. The results of the public feedback along with technical expertise will determine the final design for the pop-up park. To see more details of our engagement or to read the what we hear report check out our website at engage.calgary.ca/40AveNEPark.
