Transforming an underutilized concrete place into a vibrant park space
Parks Foundation Calgary and the Bridgeland-Riverside Community Association are pleased to announce that the award-winning Flyover Park design will be moving forward for development in the community of Bridgeland. The Alberta government recently approved $1 million in funding, which has been matched by The City of Calgary.
The underutilized space below the 4th Avenue Flyover will be transformed into a vibrant urban park and gateway to downtown. The 4th Avenue Flyover Park—the first of its kind in Calgary—will be a five-minute walk from the Bridgeland LRT station, a 10-minute walk to Calgary’s downtown core and will connect Bridgeland on the north side of the Bow with the Riverwalk Pathway in East Village.

The Quinterra Legacy Garden
It was announced today that a very special legacy garden will be constructed in South Glenmore Park, with the groundbreaking taking place later this spring. The Quinterra Legacy Garden will celebrate five inspiring young people, Lawrence Hong, Josh Hunter, Kaitlan (Kaiti) Perras, Jordan Segura, and Zackariah Rathwell, whose lives were lost on April 15, 2014 in the quiet suburban neighborhood of Brentwood in Calgary. The garden will be the city’s first fully dedicated music garden and intimate performance space, designed in a vibrant, green area to create community, build harmony and celebrate life.
The Quinterra Legacy Garden will house interactive musical and play elements along with a 30-foot diameter stage for programming, such as music, dance, theatre, spoken word, yoga and healing circles. The garden will foster a sense of discovery, play, inspiration, creativity, reflection, contemplation and positive well-being for all visitors.
