Landscapes - Winter 2015 - (Page 16)

UPFRONT UPFRONT PROLOGUE CALGARY'S MATRIARCH, RENEWED MICHELLE REID 1 EN_ WHEN HISTORIC BOWNESS PARk officially reopened in February 2015, almost two years after the 2013 flood, the City hosted a party and all Calgarians were invited. Thousands showed up to skate on the lagoon, just as people did 100 years ago. The 1912 park is one of the oldest in Calgary and is known by some as the Matriarch of Calgary's parks system. Although the park is just one of over 90 historic resources/cultural landscapes within Calgary's Parks system, it is a much-loved part of the City's heritage. Bowness had been in the early stages of restoration when the flood ravaged the landscape. Luckily the river bank stabilization had been completed, but flood damage meant the park had to be closed for almost 18 months. So many people called. "Is the train ok? I rode that train as a child and now I take my grandson; can I still take him?" As the seasons passed, skating was replaced with boating and the pathways filled up. The public response has been an excellent measure of the value of Bowness and other such cultural resources - a lesson Calgary has already taken to heart. Bowness is managed via the policies outlined in the Cultural Landscape Strategic Plan. The award-winning plan celebrates the diversity and uniqueness of Calgary's heritage and makes the City a Canadian leaders in cultural landscape conservation. Oh, and the train isn't running yet - we are still working on the tracks - but that gives everyone something to look forward to in 2016. 2 L'ACADÉMIE ACCUEIL...
