    HIGH PARK is a new rooftop public park and event space in the Beltline serving as an exciting destination for residents and visitors to the city alike. The park reimagines the under-utilized 90,000 sqft (2-acre) rooftop of the Centre City Parkade located at 340 10 Ave SW and provides much needed additional public space in the community.

     

    Escape to High Park where the expansive views east and west down the CP Rail lines are like no other in the city. Soak in the sunshine and enjoy the fresh air high above the streets below.

     

     

    HIGH PARK is a multi-year pilot project to explore creative use of public space

    Phase One of HIGH PARK, opened October 2020, invites visitors to take an elevated stroll in the fresh air above the rooftops along a 200 metre boardwalk lined by a series of colour-themed parklets designed to provide space for rest, meeting with friends and uplifting spirits. Each parklet is framed by a sign panel with a positive or provocative phrase designed to be shared, photographed, and used as inspiration for activities that bring people together, both physically and virtually.

     

     

    Live music, performance, and outdoor fitness programming

    HIGH PARK also includes plenty of wide open space lined with reclaimed astro-turf suitable for fitness, recreational and performing arts events programming. The size and unique outdoor location of HIGH PARK make it an innovative and safe alternative year round venue for festivals and public events currently impacted by COVID-19.

     

     

    Explore the BUMP Murals at HIGH PARK

    The HIGH PARK parkade features prominent landmark murals commissioned by BUMP including works by artists Kevin Ledo, Guido van HeltenAnkh One and Derek Simmers. 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.

We’re pleased to share that, starting this fall, residents and visitors to the neighbourhood will be able to access and enjoy 11th Street much more safely and easily.

    Removing CMLC from the Event Centre Would Be A Mistake We Can't Afford

    In April 2021 — days before an anticipated development permit application and public unveiling of the design — progress on Calgary’s new $550 million event centre / arena project in the Beltline was abruptly paused to address budget issues. Since the middle of June, it has become apparent that the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation’s (CMLC) project management role is in jeopardy. As a project that will make or break the future success of the Rivers District in the Beltline’s East Victoria neighbourhood, the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association (BNA) is extremely concerned and disappointed by this news.
