What's open and closed in Calgary this Easter weekend

Apr 1 2021, 11:09 am

The Easter weekend is almost upon us, and the City of Calgary will be making some minor accommodations to their services to reflect the holiday.

Some city services will be closed for the long weekend, while others may have adjusted hours.

The City of Calgary suggests spending time outdoors to celebrate the change of season and the Easter holiday while respecting current public health measures.

“With 8,000 hectares of park space, there is tons of room for physical distancing,” said the City of Calgary in a media release. “Do your part in helping us keep our parks safe and open by adhering to the recommendations of public health officials.”

The City noted that 95% of Calgary’s citizens live within a five-minute walk of their local park.

“Stay close to home by visiting your neighbourhood park,” said the City. “Avoid crowded parks and be sure to step aside to stay at least two metres or six feet apart when passing other citizens on trails, pathways, and sidewalks.”

To ensure you’re not caught off guard as you enjoy the long weekend, check out this list of what’s open and closed in Calgary this Easter holiday.
