Prairie Winds Spray park re-opening Wednesday, August 27

Join us at Prairie Winds Park on Wednesday, August 27 to celebrate the re-opening of the newly renovated spray park.

Artist's concept of the park - Come out and see the real thing!
The free event begins at 9:30 a.m. with a short presentation by Councillor Ray Jones, Ward 5, and Anne Charlton, The City of Calgary Parks director.

Kid-friendly activities, light refreshments and lots of water fun are also planned for the opening.

A design first for North America

The spray park has been outfitted with brand new and upgraded spray and water features. Its design is the first of its kind in North America.

The upgrades and new equipment were made possible with funding from the Council-created Community Investment Fund (CIF). Through CIF, City Council gives back to Calgarians by investing in and supporting new community projects and critical lifecycle upgrades throughout the city.

What: Prairie Winds Spray Park re-opening

When: Wednesday, August 27 at 9:30 a.m.

Where:         Prairie Winds Park, 223 Castleridge Blvd. N.E.

Parking is available in the north parking lot, located off of Westwinds Crescent N.E. There is also a parking lot off of 54 Avenue N.E. As parking can fill up quickly, carpooling or taking Calgary Transit is also encouraged. Visit Calgary Transit to plan your route to the opening.
