Construction begins at Prairie Winds Park

Construction is now starting at Prairie Winds Park to get that much needed facelift that you helped shape by sharing what you wanted to see in your park.

The upgraded park will have new features like a lookout at the top of the toboggan hill and better access into the park. We are also relocating the tennis courts to the southeast corner of the park, which people told us is an underused area. We’re adding lighting there too to extend the hours people can play.

Revitalizing a well-loved park

Other new elements of the park include an exciting new playscape, new wading pool with a lazy river, and a junior-sized cricket pitch that will replace the existing baseball diamond – just to name a few.

Prairie Winds Park has been a well-loved and well-used park in Calgary’s northeast for the past 25 years. The redevelopment of the park will revitalize and provide it with much-needed upgrades and improvements so it can continue serving the growing communities around it.

Being active and healthy are important to your quality of life. Having an upgraded space at Prairie Winds Park gives Calgarians another space to get out, be active and adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Construction closures

While construction is happening, certain areas of the park will be closed to the public. Closures and construction updates will be provided at and on Twitter using #prairiewindspark.

Construction is expected to be completed by the summer of 2017.
