The grand opening of the long-awaited Manmeet Singh Bhullar Park took place this weekend on Saturday, October 20.

The newly opened park is named after the late Manmeet Singh Bhullar, who had been the first turbaned Sikh Cabinet Minister in Alberta’s history. Bhullar died a hero when he was tragically killed in a 2015 accident while attempting to help a car that had rolled along the highway north of Red Deer.

Mayor Naheed Nenshi was on scene to say a few words at the opening of the park, alongside hundreds of Calgarians who had come out to both commemorate Bhullar’s life and celebrate the opening of the new park.

Construction of the park began in May of this year and it has since become a beautiful outdoor gathering place.

“Once completed, this park, with its majestic trees, beautiful vibrant colours, and multi-purpose gathering spaces will embody Manmeet’s spirit and strength,” said Namrita Rattan, the late Manmeet Singh Bhullar’s wife, in a May release.

The park is located in the NE Calgary community of Taradale.

Here’s what the park looks like now that construction has been completed and ribbons have officially been cut.
