Prairie Winds Park

Prairie-Winds-ParkPrairie Winds Park has been a popular and well-loved regional destination. It has been a community gathering place for a quarter-century. The park first opened on September 8, 1990, with a gazebo in the Grant MacEwan grove.

It has been a vital part of Calgary's northeast communities. As the surrounding neighbourhoods grow and become more established, the park's role has evolved. The attendance has increased too. This growth resulted in new demands on its existing facilities.

The government redeveloped the destination park from 2014 to 2017 with a whopping 11.9 million dollars budget. The park added features such as a playscape and upgraded wading pool.

Due to its proximity to the Calgary Airport, the authorities prohibit flying any device in Prairie Winds Park. The rule includes kites, model planes, drones, balloons, and any other airborne device.
