Did you know that Beddington Heights is over 25% green space? Beddington Heights is working with the City of Calgary on an exciting project to transform and revitalize our outdoor spaces. Reimagine Beddington will help us:
- Understand our current open spaces, green spaces, playgrounds & parks
- Understand what the community needs and wants these spaces to be like
- Identify opportunities to enhance diversity and experience in these spaces.
