Four-acre Central Park featuring an accessible playground and skatepark, local art and dog park now open in southwest Calgary

CALGARY, AB, July 25, 2023 /CNW/ - More than 1,000 community members came out to celebrate the grand opening of Mattamy Homes' amenity-rich Central Park this past weekend.

Located in southwest Calgary's Yorkville community, Central Park is Calgary's newest public park created for enjoyment in all four seasons. The park features an accessible skateboard park and playground, dog park, pavilion, tobogganing hill, built-in ping pong table, permanent cornhole game, and puddle rink, with a five-acre storm pond coming to the park in 2025.

"We really wanted to bring a new outdoor destination to the suburbs of Calgary," said Collin Campbell, President of Mattamy Homes' Alberta Division. "Many of the city's most notable public parks are located in Calgary's inner city. We aimed to bring that experience to the suburbs by creating a public and accessible outdoor space that encourages our homeowners in Yorkville and those in the surrounding communities to gather and enjoy the outdoors, together. That's really what Central Park is all about – bringing the community together."

In consultation with the University of Calgary's Urban Lab, an important focus throughout the park's creation was put on accessibility. Several key elements of the park were developed to be fully wheel-chair accessible to ensure all Calgarians can enjoy the park to its fullest.

Facts about Central Park:
  • Four-acre park, completely open to the public.
  • 10,000 sq. ft. of accessible playground space.
  • 15,000 sq. ft. fully fenced dog park. First off-leash dog park southwest of Fish Creek Provincial Park.
  • 13,000 sq. ft. accessible skatepark. Fourth permanent skateboard park in southwest Calgary, only one in the southwest that is south of Anderson Road.
  • Pavilion featuring airbrush art by Calgarian Jordan Bourgeault.
  • Additional features include a tobogganing hill, built-in ping pong table, permanent cornhole game, and puddle rink.
