Community Description

go to top ^

The southeast community of Parkland is named due to its location adjacent to Fish Creek Provincial Park. There is a 20 meter wide strip of open space maintained along the top of Fish Creek Park for public access to the park.  Parkland offers panoramic views of ancient trees, meadows and the river. The area was annexed in 1961 and developed in 1974. Downtown can be accessed via Bow Bottom Trail, Canyon Meadows Drive and Macleod Trail.  There is a public and separate school in the area.

The Parkland community centre is well furnished and contains a gym, meeting rooms, kitchen and playschool. The community centre is used by such groups as the Brownies and karate.  Parkland also has several special events each year, including a Halloween party and a Winter Festival.  There is also an annual parade of garage sales and barbeque. The community is also closely involved with the Friends of Fish Creek Park, who seek to preserve the park and its wildlife, and is involved with such events as the annual river clean up.
