Bowmont Park opens

8 years in the making, our largest pilot project for Watershed+ is now open to the public, following its dedication to Dale Hodges yesterday by Mayor Nenshi.
What was once a contaminated gravel pit in Calgary, Alberta, has now been remediated and transformed into a 40 hectare natural space, park, public art work and stormwater facility.

Artworks on this scale are the work of many passionate and dedicated people form conception to construction. Design collaborators: O2 Planning + Design, AECOM, Source2Source. Construction: Wilco Southwest.
We are indebted to Calgary Parks, Water Resources and Public art teams City of Calgary Arts and Culture for their the vision, generosity and relentless hard work and determination to provide this place for the people of Calgary.
We couldn’t be more excited to share it, if you’re planning a visit do get in touch (any excuse to get out there) We might even see the newly resident moose.
