Can the city planners and Calgary’s parkour community work together to make this area into something special? The city has been investing time and money into improving Calgary’s downtown and I see this as an opportunity to make the space a unique area. Aligning some common goals the area could be used by the many office workers as a desirable lunching area, as a rallying area for the practitioners of parkour, and as draw to the downtown core during weekends and for tourism. It will be interesting to see how forward-thinking Calgary is willing to be in its downtown development and how professionally the parkour community can present itself.
