Central Commons Winter
Central Commons Winter

Jan. 03, 2023 | CREB

Ice, ice baby

Dust off your skates and bundle up because the Central Commons Park at the University District in Calgary is now open. It’s a must-visit spot this winter!

At the heart of the trendy University District, the Central Commons Park is a new gathering space, mindfully created with Calgary’s quickly changing seasons in mind. The three-acre green space is a community ice rink in the winter, and a grassy area in the summer, hosting festivals

The skating rink is temperature controlled, which will be accessible even when chinooks hit — no more slushy skating! Off the ice, people can gather around the fire pits and public barbecues for cozy winter afternoon get-togethers.

Open year-round, Central Commons Park will feature unique seasonal amenities, including an ice-skating rink, a staging area for concerts, picnic areas with tables and BBQ stations, fire features, and several patio spaces perfect for your next outdoor gathering. Its design also nods to the natural spaces in and around Calgary, with features such as a stair set resembling the Rocky Mountains.

The best part? It’s also super close to many bars, shops, amenities, and restaurants like The Banquet, the first and only walk-up McDonald’s location, a VIP Cineplex movie theatre and so much more!

Check it out while the ice is still frozen over. It won’t be long until spring has sprung again in Calgary!
