Reimagining a New Future for the Highland Park Golf Course


Maple Partners Incorporated


Intelligent Futures has developed the community engagement program for this unique redevelopment project. In May 2013, the former site of the Highland Golf Course in northwest Calgary was sold to a partnership headed by Maple Projects Inc. Maple’s initial plans are to build multi-family homes and some commercial elements that would revitalize the property, provide accessible green space and offer housing options for Highland Park. The ultimate goal is for a development that respects the history of the area while enhancing its future.

Intelligent Futures developed a multi-faceted program to invite the community to share their ideas on how the development can best benefit Highland Park and the surrounding areas. Multiple engagement tactics were used, including wayfinding signage and a repurposing of the former golf course clubhouse into an engagement centre.

reImagining: A New Future for the former Highland Golf Course is a comprehensive engagement process designed to collect ideas and opinions from the public. Since 2013, there have been two phases of in-person engagement with additional online and City-led engagement work.
