It’s been a long wait, but the first big area of the Devonian Gardens will re-open Thursday.
The city has announced the playground will be open to the public for the first time since the park closed in mid-2016 for water repairs.
David Harrison, with the City of Calgary, says they’ll continue to open new areas of the park throughout the year, with the next one scheduled in a month or two.
“This is a priority for us, the playground being a very important area for the public. We started our repairs in here, and we were able to complete them. They were the first area that we were able to complete,” said Harrison
Harrison adds they hope to fully reopen the gardens late this summer.
