Munro Park Update

By June 27, 2024No Comments

Munro Park was identified as part of the City of Calgary’s Established Area Growth and Change Strategy (EAGCS). This project intends to provide important public space improvements in a growing and changing area by expanding the quality and capacity of the existing park through the addition of appropriate amenities.

Munro Park is currently well used but has further potential to enhance the local community, business activities, and improve connectivity in the area. The City has already made some improvements in Munro Park but there is still a vision to add playful amenities and connect the different park spaces into something creative, fun, and inclusive for all seasons.

Construction associated with Phase 1 of the Masterplan for Munro Park was completed in 2017, which included a constructed walking / running track with exercise nodes, additional picnic tables, trees, shrubs, and removal of the baseball diamond.

Current engagement is intended to address design proposals made in Phase 2 improvements of the park Masterplan, completed in 2014. These improvements initially proposed an enhanced playground and additional amenities such as a small skatepark and additional pathways. However, the final scope of work will be influenced by this public engagement process.


In the Phase 1: What We Heard report, we heard how valued Munro Park is to the community of Mountview / Winston Heights.

Based on your feedback, we are presenting two options for your consideration:

Option 1 – Current Master Plan

Option 1 reflects the 2014 masterplan and has minimal interventions in comparison to Option 2.

You loved, so we kept:

  • The health and fitness focus
  • The existing fitness equipment
  • The existing picnic areas
  • The existing walking loop
  • The existing mature trees


Option 1: Munro Park Existing Master Plan

Option 2 – Enhanced Features

Option 2 is a collection of the latest results from our previous engagement and includes a wide range of enhancements.

Please note: The final design may be a combination of both Options 1 and 2, and is dependent on your preferences below, as well as budget, technical and environmental constraints.

We heard the following ideas and suggestions for park improvements and upgrades. With this we can offer an exciting design concept that will include the relocation of design elements from Olympic Plaza to be included in the Park Entrances and Plaza. (Option 2)

You wanted, so we are proposing:

  • Providing opportunities for increasing site safety, particularly on western edge (fenced dog area)
  • An updated, inclusive and accessible playground
  • Additional shaded seating
  • Beautifying the park
  • A multi-sport flex field
  • A flexible, community gathering space
  • A diversity of multi-generational, multi-seasonal recreation opportunities
  • Additional waste disposal
  • Small additions such as a mini library and lost and found

Explore the map below to see what is being recommended and where you can offer your preferences. (What we want to know).

We made the following design concepts based on what people told us. We also thought about design rules, the space we have, how nature would be affected, how things would work, and cost. Note: These are concepts only and the final project is subject to change.
