We’re writing the next 20-year plan on how we develop, redevelop, and manage parks in Calgary. Our goal is to better connect Calgarians with the environment, wellness and each other, through our shared park spaces.

Your voice matters! We want to hear from you to create a Parks Plan that works for our city, our environment, our communities and our future.

Why now?

It’s been 20 years since we updated our Parks Plan, and during this time, the needs of Calgarians and our city have changed. This new plan will allow us to deliver inclusive, accessible, sustainable parks for all Calgarians – now and in the future.

Why you?

Parks are free public spaces with huge environmental, social and economic benefits. They are an essential component of a healthy, vibrant and resilient city. We are eager to hear from Calgarians on how we can create a new Parks Plan that works for our city, our environment, our communities, and our future.


By 2024, The City of Calgary will develop and present the Connect: Calgary’s Parks Plan to Council for approval. This Plan will replace the original Open Space Plan approved by Council in 2003 and will determine how Calgary’s parks are managed, developed, and redeveloped over the next 20 years. The process of creating this Plan includes three phases of engagement.

The second round of engagement will take place October 16 – November 10, 2023.
