We’re participating in The City of Calgary’s Talking City project, helping Calgarians learn about City of Calgary services in a unique way. Through automated text messages, you can talk with over 100 select City services – including our own community centre! 

The City is launching public engagement for the 2023-2026 Service Plans and Budgets, a roadmap for how they deliver services to citizens and the financial plan to support their actions. As part of this project, Talking City uses automated text messages to enable you to “talk” with select light poles, bus stops, public art pieces, swimming pools and more. The personified object will tell you an interesting fact about the City service it provides and encourage you to share what’s important to you about that service.

Look for locations on the map at calgary.ca/talkingcity. Simply text the keyword on the sign you find at the location listed to the phone number indicated to begin the conversation. Learn more at calgary.ca/yourservices.
