Engagement is now closed. Thank you to everyone who provided their input and ideas.

The What We Heard Report for this engagement can be found here. Based on the feedback received, a detailed design concept will be available in summer.

A special thank you to the Grade 5/6 students and teachers of Mountview School for their creative ideas for the future Munro Park. See below a collage of their artwork and ideas.


Munro Park was identified as part of the City of Calgary’s Established Area Growth and Change Strategy (EAGCS). This project intends to provide important public space improvements in a growing and changing area by expanding the quality and capacity of the existing park through the addition of appropriate amenities.

Munro Park is currently well used but has further potential to enhance the local community, business activities, and improve connectivity in the area. The City has already made some improvements in Munro Park but there is still a vision to add playful amenities and connect the different park spaces into something creative, fun, and inclusive for all seasons.

Construction associated with Phase 1 of the Masterplan for Munro Park was completed in 2017, which included a constructed walking / running track with exercise nodes, additional picnic tables, trees, shrubs, and removal of the baseball diamond.

Current engagement is intended to address design proposals made in Phase 2 improvements of the park Masterplan, completed in 2014. These improvements initially proposed an enhanced playground and additional amenities such as a small skatepark, additional pathways, and a drinking fountain. However, the final scope of work will be influenced by this public engagement process.


Munro Park, located in Northeast Calgary, was initially developed in 1948. During the first half of the 1900’s, Winston Heights/Mountview housed rural homesteads, which were provided to veterans of World War II.

Situated within one block of Main Street and Primary Transit Network corridors, the park plays a crucial role in the evolving landscape.

The project’s vision is to enhance Munro Park’s identity as a vibrant destination community park for the enjoyment of neighbourhood residents and visitors to promote active living, support the growth of the area, and help build a stronger community. The park improvements should be sensitive to the surrounding communities’ needs, consider traffic calming, pedestrian access, and provide seasonal appropriate uses and programing. The conceptual design for Phase 2 improvements will support The City’s engagement findings and address the needs of civic partners and interest holders.



The public engagement for this project is now closed. A What We Heard Report will be coming in the Spring.

The images below do NOT represent a final design for the park. They are ideas to show how elements may be laid out. In these images many of the amenities can be mixed and matched and the final concept will be based on many factors including engagement, budget, future maintenance considerations, availability of materials, etc.
