March 2017: Discover University District With Us

February 24, 2017

According to Nobel Prize winner Albert Szent-Györgyi the word “Discovery” is defined as “Seeing what everybody has seen, and thinking what nobody has thought.”

At University District, we start 2017 as excited to satisfy Calgary’s curiosity as we were to sparking it in 2016.

We have some news to share about the future place for in-person get-togethers.

We are pleased to reveal the University District Discovery Centre as it gets set to be a future central home for community connections and to showcase what’s to come from a design perspective.

Personal connections both on and offline are at the forefront of our community — The Discovery Centre will further our commitment to fostering relationships. Our Fall Circle the Wagons festival was wildly entertaining, but those at our pond-side Meet the Builders event with Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra know exploring the future of University District together face-to-face is especially meaningful.

It’s where we will meet, learn, and explore together what the near and long-term future of these important lands looks like, as Northwest Calgary’s new community is conceived, takes shape and blossoms with character.

The Discovery Centre site is being built just north of the Alberta Children’s Hospital on University Avenue.

The foundation has been laid for a 5,000 square feet interactive, informative, and oh-so inviting hub. And an agenda of planned activities is coming together so we can too, and often!

Circle March 11th and 12th for our opening. We will welcome Calgarians with University District’s Discovery Centre door-opening celebration via our newsletter and on our social channels. Please follow and engage with us to keep updated on the latest and greatest within our community:

“Quite literally, excitement is building,” says Maureen Henderson  “University District Discovery Centre will surprise, stimulate and set the stage for the new wonders in the city’s Northwest.

We look forward to welcoming everyone in March over plans, ideas, dreams and a great cup of coffee or three.”
