Established in 2018, High Park is a rooftop public park and event space in the Beltline serving as an exciting destination for residents and visitors to the city alike. As one of Beltline's parks with the highest city-wide draw, the park reimagines the under-utilized 90,000 sqft (2-acre) rooftop of the City Centre Parkade located at 340 10 Ave SW and provides much needed additional public space in the community. The Park is operated by the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association.
Phase 3 of High Park introduces three basketball half-courts to Calgary's much loved rooftop public park space. The installation includes courtside bleachers, new lounge seating around the rooftop fire pit, an expanded astroturf lawn for events, new BUMP Festival graffiti murals and illuminated HIGH PARK wayfinding signage. A fresh coat of paint will be added this spring!
Phase 3 of High Park is made possible through the support of Prairies Economic Development Canada.
High Park boasts three basketball half-courts, perfect for basketball enthusiasts of all skill levels. Whether it's a friendly pickup game or a team jam, the court-side bleachers ensure that everyone can cheer on their favorite players and enjoy the action.
Designed to accommodate various events, the expanded astroturf lawn provides a versatile space for workshops, gatherings, and picnics. It offers a vibrant setting for yoga workshops, dance classes, and other wellness-focused activities. Additionally High Park can facilitate movie screenings via our blow up projector screen.
Take a break from the bustling city and relax in our comfortable lounge seating around the rooftop fire pit. It's an ideal spot to unwind, socialize, and make lasting memories with friends and colleagues among the towering cityscape.
High Park features landmark murals commissioned by the BUMP Festival including works by artists Kevin Ledo, Guido van Helten, Ankh One , Derek Simmers, Kalum Teke Dan, and numerous talented local graffiti artists. Inner Warmth by Calgary artist Derek Simmers takes visitors across an expansive prairie sky as they pass through the hallway on the main level to the elevator banks that lead to the rooftop.
Operated by the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association, High Park is designed by Public City Architecture in collaboration with the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association, BUMP Festival and Calgary Parking.
Funding for High Park has been made possible by the Beltline Community Investment Fund, Prairies Economic Development Canada, Canada Healthy Communicates Initiative, and the Calgary Parking Revenue Reinvestment Program.
