Changes at Parks Foundation Calgary...
Our CEO, Myrna Dubé will be setting off on a new adventure later this year and we are very excited (and sad) to see her go. As you will see in the official notice below from our Chairman, John Houghton, Myrna will continue on with Parks Foundation Calgary in a smaller capacity to help us complete our signature project, the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway.
We wish Myrna all the best and look forward to a new chapter here at Parks Foundation Calgary.
Thank-you, Thomas Walsh...
Parks Foundation Calgary is very saddened to hear of the recent passing of Thomas Walsh, who was the founding Chairman of our organization. He served in this capacity from 1985 through 1988 and remained a supporter throughout our 30 year history. His vision of beautifying Calgary with parks and pathways has played out in many of the lovely parks we developed and Calgarians continue to enjoy. We express our sincerest condolences to his family, associates and friends.

With the tragic death of MLA Manmeet Bhullar, Parks Foundation Calgary has lost one of its most cherished friends.
Bhullar was one of the driving forces behind the launch of PFC’s Rotary/Mattamy Greenway, a project of pathways, urban parks and environmental wetlands open to all Calgarians.
In fact it was in Bhullar’s riding that the first phase of the 138-kilometre project commenced, given his enthusiastic, and continued, support.
It is no surprise that his constituency was renamed Calgary Greenway.
PFC joins all Albertans in offering our sympathy to Bhullar’s family and our thank-you to him for his dedication to this province and to all its citizens.
In a too-short life, marked by empathy and public service, Bhullar had stopped on the highway to offer his help to a distressed driver when he was hit and killed by another vehicle.
We will miss this true champion of Alberta.
