Confederation Park Improvements

Improvements to Confederation Park, one of Calgary’s significant cultural landscapes, are scheduled to begin in the spring of 2016. Lighting, pathway and seating improvements are currently in development as identified in the Confederation Park Management Plan. The plan guides The City’s annual work plans for the management and maintenance of the park. Approximately 50 per cent of the recommendations have been completed.

Further enhancements are also being considered for 2016/2017, to work within the Project’s budget of $1.1 million. A Public Art component will be incorporated in 2017 in alignment with The City’s Public Art Policy.

A part of our history

Confederation Park was created in 1967 to commemorate the centennial of Canada’s Confederation. Today, 50 years later, this park is one of Calgary’s most beloved parks, and has been evaluated by the Calgary Heritage Authority and placed on Calgary’s Inventory of Historic Resources.
