In Manmeet Singh Bhullar Park, Calgarians will walk amongst five diverse and separate groves of trees, and through five giant steel archways, that merge into one natural space. This park, along the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway near where Bhullar lived, will honour a politician, and a man, who brought people and communities together.

PAYING TRIBUTE TO ONE OF ALBERTA’S GREATEST SUPPORTERS OF COMMUNITY, MANMEET SINGH BHULLAR PARK.

Parks Foundation is excited to work on a new park dedicated to Manmeet Singh Bhullar.  The legacy park will be located along the Rotary-Mattamy Greenway in Taradale, Calgary, close to where Bhullar lived, and is scheduled for completion in 2018.

Calgary-born Bhullar was the youngest person to hold a cabinet position in the provincial government when he was appointed Service Alberta Minister in 2011 and the first turbaned Sikh cabinet minister in Canada.  “A great supporter of park development, Bhullar was widely admired for his tireless work for communities and vulnerable individuals,” said Sheila Taylor, Executive Director of Parks Foundation Calgary.  “This park, along the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway path near where Bhullar lived, will provide a much needed community gathering and recreation space,” she said.

Designed by Ground3 Landscape Architects, Manmeet Singh Bhullar Park will encompass over 5 hectares, featuring colourful groves of trees, a gathering plaza and distinctive harvest tables that seat up to 20 people. The park will be directly connected to the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway pathway system.  

“The Calgary Foundation is honoured to support both the completion of the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway pathway and the Manmeet Singh Bhullar Park. This much-needed environmental project not only connects citizens in communities across Calgary, it fittingly recognizes the considerable contributions of a remarkable community builder whose legacy and spirit will live on through this unique pathway that encircles our city.” says Eva Friesen, President & CEO, Calgary Foundation.  

“When Parks Foundation Calgary brought this idea to our family we were deeply humbled and excited by the possibility that a park would bear Manmeet’s name and serve as a place to bring people together, just as he did in his lifetime. We hope the Manmeet Singh Bhullar Park comes to be a place cherished by all Calgarians as it will be by our family. Thank you to The Calgary Foundation and The City of Calgary for giving this gift to the community. Our heartfelt gratitude to Parks Foundation Calgary and Ground3 Landscape Architects who worked to make the design of this park so unique, just like its namesake,” says the Bhullar family. 

This important project was made possible with generous contributions from Calgary Foundation, Province of Alberta, and City of Calgary.
