Jack Long Park – Public Engagement Opportunity from July 20 to Aug. 4

Construction is well underway to redevelop Jack Long Park into a new cultural hub for the community. Before the park is scheduled to reopen this fall, we are looking for input from local community members on one of the park’s design features – new custom bike racks. Citizens are encouraged to visit engage.calgary.ca/jack-long-park when website is live starting on Monday to provide their input on three different bike rack designs. Engagement will be open for input starting on July 20 to Aug. 4. To select the final bike rack design, The City will take into consideration the feedback obtained from this public engagement, balanced with City policies, bylaws, and priorities. The preferred design, along with a What We Heard, What We Did Report will be shared with the public in fall 2020 at engage.calgary.ca/jack-long-park.

 

Background

Construction to redevelop Jack Long Park began in October 2018 and was briefly suspended in the summer of 2019 with the discovery of historic artifacts within the site. An archeological assessment of the site was completed in the fall of 2019, and construction resumed in spring 2020. The updated park will offer a new recreational space for families and youth, with a natural play area, picnic tables and a large family style harvest table and chairs, among other amenities. See a photo below of what the park will look like when it opens to the public. For more information, please visit calgary.ca/jacklongpark.
