The new community of Harmony has an outdoor skatepark that was recently completed. We had heard the park would be private so we reached out to the developer, who said, “The skateboard park in Harmony is designated for the residents as their OAH fees pay for it, however in the future it will be open to the public on a pay per use basis.”
Although this new skatepark will not be directly accessible to most Calgary skaters, the good news is that we have more than a dozen outdoor skatepark options in the city. Pictures of the Harmony skatepark below:
City of Calgary Public Art Program
“The City of Calgary is seeking to commission an artist and/or artist team to participate in the first phase of implementation for the Skateboard Amenities Strategy. The selected artist(s) will consult and work with the design team (external consultants and City staff) to explore creative visioning for the overall park designs, determine the scope of possibilities for public art within the selected sites, and develop and implement a project plan based on those possibilities. Community-based and temporary public art initiatives are desired.”

The city is once again hiring for the job of skatepark monitor for the mobile skateparks. Check out this link under “Leisure Services”. Good luck!
