“beautiful highly used park”
Prince's Island Park is a beautiful highly used park in downtown Calgary that holds many large events throughout the year including the Canada Day celebration and Calgary Folk Festival. Since its development as a park in the 1950s, Prince's Island Park has been recognized as an urban oasis and is an important contributor to the cultural and recreational quality of life for Calgarians. In March 1999, Council approved a renovation of the island, including wetland construction and native plant restoration. The ChevronTexaco Learning Pathway is an environmental educational pathway on the east end of Prince's Island Park. The pathway winds around a constructed wetland designed to treat storm water before entering back into the Bow River. Interesting interpretive signage explains how a wetland works and presents meaningful information about wildlife, habitat and water quality. It is an environmental, educational, and recreational resource that connects people with nature in an interactive way.
