This is the place you need to check out before it gets way too cold in Calgary.

Inglewood just saw the opening of Park Park, a project created by Public City Architecture that was unveiled earlier this month.

The park is a re-imagining of a parking lot at the Calgary Parking Authority’s lot 43, just across from The Hose and the Hound Neighbourhood Pub.

It features a wide variety of cool structures, picnic tables, basketball hoops, and more, all painted in interesting colours.

“PARK PARK is a room of parked curiosities designed to provoke a non-prescriptive rethink of the ubiquitous neighbourhood parking lot and the way we designate land use in our cities,” stated Public City on their website.

“We are all too familiar with the barren landscape formed by surface parking lots; they exist all across the country. In contrast, PARK PARK is designed as a layer cake of uses where single use has long prevailed.”

Park Park will be in place for the next two years, but we’d suggest checking it out before winter comes to freeze your photo-taking fingers!
