Prairie Winds Park Redevelopment: Your park, your say

Prairie Winds Park, one of Calgary’s most well-used and well-loved regional parks, is being redeveloped, and we want your input and ideas.

From July 14 to August 2, you can share your thoughts on the new park design. Public input will help inform and shape how the park looks and what elements and features should be included.

Ways to engage

To kick off engagement, The City is asking citizens to provide their feedback on the following two questions:
  1. What do you like most about Prairie Winds Park?
  2. What changes would improve Prairie Winds Park?
The different ways to share input and answer the questions are:

  • Provide comments on the sounding board located at Prairie Winds Park. Input and ideas are welcome in English, Punjabi, Urdu, Tagalog, Arabic and Gujarati.
  • Participate in Flag Day at Prairie Winds Park on July 26 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Use flags to vote on areas of the park you like, and areas where you’d like to see change.
Text/SMS Messaging
  • Text your feedback to 331-431-5333 (Normal messaging rates apply. Check with your cell phone provider for details).
Prairie Winds Park opened nearly 25 years ago to serve the growing communities east of the airport. The redevelopment will revitalize the park and provide much-needed upgrades and improvements so it can continue to serve the communities around it. The newly renovated spray park, scheduled to reopen early August, will also be included in the new park design.

More information on how to get involved is also available at calgary.ca/prairiewindspark. Questions or comments can be emailed to parks@calgary.ca, or contact 311.
