Storied, flood-damaged park to re-open by end of year
A historical and natural jewel in the city of Calgary, Bowness Park is expected to be once again open to the public by the end of the year.
In the midst of a $12 million redevelopment project, the park was one of the areas hit hardest by June 2013 flooding. Debris lined the canal, a mainstay for winter skating, silt covered the entire park and boulders almost a metre high rolled into roadways and parking lots.
