Reimagine Park Life and Play Time

Community

Our Northwest Commons Park is ready to welcome and inspire a new concept of outdoor play. The diverse space includes features to attract and delight fun-seekers of all ages and abilities. It’s also a Playcore National Demonstration Site, which gives recognition to our park for being an inclusive, fair, smart, independent, safe, active and comfortable play space.

We will provide you with information, stories, news and inspiration about the things that matter so you can live a more inspired, active and connected life in NW Calgary at University District… Life works here.
