Shouldice Regional Athletic Park Design Development Plan
Client The City of Calgary Parks
Location Calgary | Alberta | Canada
The City of Calgary retained the services of O2 to provide a new design development plan for Shouldice Regional Athletic Park, which was facing increased demands from sports groups. The 100 Acres/40 ha site is located along the Bow River in the community of Montgomery. The project engaged a high community interest and demanded extensive public consultation with stakeholders.
The proposed plan combined the development of world-class sports facilities with more passive recreational activities along the river edge. The challenge of the project was the integration of a widely dispersed series of high demand facilities with a cohesive park setting that respected the character of the Montgomery Community and provided strong links along the river edge. O2 employed design sketches and images to communicate ideas and concepts during public consultation. These sketches and images provided an effective tool in visualizing development scenarios and options.
