Tom Brook Athletic Park Redevelopment


 
The City is moving forward with plans to redevelop Tom Brook Athletic Park behind Southland Leisure Centre in the spring of 2018. Construction will take approximately one year and will upgrade the existing ball diamond and natural turf rectangular field with two rectangular artificial turf fields.

Tom Brook Athletic Park has been identified as a strategic location for artificial turf based on amenities at Southland Leisure Centre that make this an appealing multisport tournament venue for amateur athletes. The project will also add additional parking to the north side of Southland Leisure Centre.

Impacts to Residents

They understand that construction creates additional dust and noise, and will do their best to minimize disruptions and ensure the safety of our neighbours. Information about staging and access will be shared once a work plan and schedule is confirmed. For more information, please visit calgary.ca/recreationprojects.

 

Palliser Playground Replacement



Calgary Parks is planning to replace the playground located at 2127 Pallisdale Road SW due to its age and poor condition. The replacement is expected to take place this summer or fall of 2017. Feedback trying to be included includes:
Cater to the 6-12 year old age group.
– Include climbing components
– Include swings
– Include a larger slide
– Preserve the pirate ship theme (or at least a nautical theme)
– Try to move the playground’s foot print a little further from the house located in the SW corner of the park
Once we know the removal date of the existing playground, we will let you know. Construction of the new playground is expected to begin two weeks following the removal of the old playground.
