Dust off your knee pads and bundle up, because the University District in Calgary has announced when and how they’ll celebrate the grand opening of Central Commons Park, a stunning destination where families can play, rest, and enjoy the great outdoors all year round.

Set to welcome the public on Sunday, December 4th, this 3-acre space is described as a ‘seasonless signature destination,’ mindfully made for social, cultural and recreational events.

Here, Calgarians will be able to wander outdoor markets, enjoy live entertainment, have summertime picnics and in the winter – will be able to skate the plaza or relax next to a fire pit!
