Located in the Downtown Warehouse District, the Warehouse Campus Neighbourhood Central Park will cover 1.33 hectares (roughly 13,300 square metres or just over 2 football fields) between 106 Street and 108 Street and Jasper Avenue to 102 Avenue. The downtown population is expected to significantly increase in the next decade. This park will serve as a major public amenity for residents and businesses. The design of 106 Street from Jasper Avenue to 102 Avenue will be integrated into the scope of work for Warehouse Campus Park. This project is a significant catalyst project identified in the Capital City Downtown Plan, and is fully funded by the Capital City Downtown Community Revitalization Levy.

The Urban Land Institute’s Building Healthy Places Initiative profiled more than 30 approaches to the public realm during the pandemic from around the globe, representing a range of cities—small and large, on different continents, implementing pilot projects or accelerating long-term plans. The examples illuminate how cities can innovate with low-cost, immediately responsive, and creative interventions that promote health and social equity. Several of these examples, spanning four different types of public space projects, are highlighted in this article. The Pandemic and the Public Realm: Global Innovations for Health, Social Equity, and Sustainability is a forthcoming report of ULI

Le maire suggère que les places temporaires pourraient devenir permanentes, créant ainsi plus d’espaces animés dans toute la ville. Si ce programme pilote est couronné de succès, il peut faire partie de la construction d’espaces publics plus axés sur les personnes.

Le service des routes de Calgary, en coordination avec la CEMA, a identifié des routes où les voies seront réduites dans l’espoir que cela puisse donner aux marcheurs, aux cyclistes et à d’autres modes plus d’espace pour être à l’extérieur, tout en maintenant la distance sociale. Des sections de Elbow Drive et du sentier Crowchild feront partie de cette mesure, entre autres lieux de marche populaires à Calgary
