Enhancing Vacant Land

September 14, 2021


The City of Calgary is enhancing vacant land at Centre Street N and 40 Avenue N.E. to create a pop-up park for interim use. They have developed two design options for the park and they would love your feedback:

Park Design Option One:

  • Add a fence around the pop-up park along with an accessible pathway that leads to a basketball court for multi-purpose recreation use surrounded by trees and benches.
  • Includes a sheltered space with picnic tables for year-round use.
  • The space can be used for recreation programming such as fitness, art and sports for all ages.

Park Design Option Two:

  • Add a fence around the pop-up park along with an accessible pathway that leads to a community garden with planter beds, some of the beds can be used for accessible use.
  • Add natural play elements, two covered swing benches and a mini library.
  • The space can be used for recreation programming such as fitness, art and gardening workshops for all ages.

 Mobility Improvements

We are also implementing mobility improvements in the communities of Greenview, Greenview Industrial Park, Highland Park and Winston Heights / Mountview. We are making these enhancements to improve mobility for people who walk, wheel and drive and to complete the missing links in our transportation network.

The City of Calgary is currently hosting online engagement at engage.calgary.ca/40AveNEPark until September 17 to gather feedback on the design options for the pop-up park.

    Updated COVID-19 Testing in Alberta

    Overview

    Alberta has one of the highest testing rates in the world. In addition to completing as many tests as possible, we are being purposeful in our testing in order to:

    • diagnose and treat individuals at greatest risk
    • trace the spread of the virus so we can identify steps to limit the spread
    • determine how well our public health measures are working.

    If you have symptoms

    If you are experiencing mild symptoms – cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose or sore throat:

    If you experience or see someone experiencing severe symptoms of COVID-19, including difficulty breathing, severe chest pain, feelings of confusion or loss of consciousness, call 911 immediately.

    Who is being tested

    Alberta is testing those at greatest risk of severe illness, including anyone in hospital with a respiratory illness.

    Testing is being offered to symptomatic individuals (i.e. cough, fever, runny nose, sore throat or shortness of breath) who:

    • live in continuing care facilities, group homes or other similar congregate settings
    • are aged 65 years or older
    • live with someone aged 65 years or older
    • live in the Calgary zone

    Testing is being offered to symptomatic individuals (i.e. cough, fever, runny nose, sore throat or shortness of breath) in the following roles:

    • healthcare workers
    • group home workers and shelter workers
    • first responders, including firefighters and EMS
    • people involved in COVID-19 enforcement, including police, peace officers, bylaw officers, environmental health officers, and fish and wildlife officers
    • correctional facility staff, working in either a provincial or federal facility
    • essential service workers

    As the situation evolves, Alberta’s testing approach and priorities will adjust according to need and direction from the chief medical officer of health.

    To determine if you need to be tested and next steps, complete the COVID-19 self-assessment for Albertans or the COVID-10 self-assessment for healthcare and shelter workers, enforcement personnel and first responders.
