SW) When: Wednesday, April 24, 2013 at 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM Contact: Chris Lalonde Contact Number: 403-238-3841 Email: WebSite: Part of the reason why Calgary is such is a beautiful city today is because of the abundance of green spaces we have virtually at our doorstep. The origins of Fish Creek Provincial Park and other Calgary parks are intertwined with the evolution of the city itself, and the stories surrounding these parks are as diverse as the people who enjoy them today. Learn about the history of some of Calgary's most popular urban parks, including Carburn Park, Prince's Island, Fort Calgary Historic Park, the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary and Fish Creek Provincial Park, as well as the story behind some less prominent parks, including Mewata Park (Millennium), Tomkins Park, Lindsay Park and more!
