Are you a user of Alberta's public parks?

Join us for a virtual community conversation about the accessibility of Alberta's public parks.

Are you a user of Alberta's public parks?

Join us on Wednesday, January 26, 2024 from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm via Zoom in an open conversation about the issue of accessibility in Alberta's public parks. With the changing legislation in Alberta, resulting in user fees and possible site closures, how has the accessibility of the parks been altered? Have you changed your park use habits as a result? What are the barriers you face when trying to access these sites? Are public parks a common good that all Albertans should be able to enjoy or should tourism be set aside in order to conserve nature?

The goal of this conversation is to hear from those who use Alberta's public parks, in any capacity, to understand how accessible the parks are and how the changes have affected your use. The input from this community conversation will be valuable in allowing us to better understand the main barriers to the issue and identify how best accessibility can be ensured.

Please RSVP by obtaining a free general admission ticket and a Zoom invite link will be emailed closer to the date.

This event is organized with the collaboration of CPAWS Southern Alberta and Mount Royal University's Institute for Community Prosperity through the Catamount Fellowship. The Catamount Fellowship provides a select group of students the opportunity to explore and research current issues facing our community. Through this program, students are able to increase their knowledge on systems-level thinking and how it influences the community. The goal of the Catamount Fellowship is to give students the opportunity to become changemakers and help make a positive impact within their community.
