There are over ten engineered wetland sites in Fish Creek and these are designed to decrease the environmental impact of stormwater before it enters the creek and eventually the Bow River. Wayne Meikle consulted with The City of Calgary on developing these ponds and oversaw the construction and installation of the new flood-resistant bridges in the park. This presentation is a great way to see how much the park landscape has changed over the past 7 years.. Event Details. Location: 13931 Woodpath Rd. SW
