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.
