(Frequently Asked Questions)

Q How do I book an event, like a wedding, in the gardens?

A Since the Gardens and BirthPlace Forest areas are located in a City of Calgary park, they are open to the general public for informal use, just like all other city parks. 

We do not take bookings for special events or exclusive use. If you would like to make a booking, you can do so through the City Parks Department.

A Please refer to our Directions & Parking page.


Q What are your hours?

A We are a public park within Calgary and are open 24/7. Volunteers are normally around during the day on weekends and weekdays, but do not have a set schedule. 

Q How can I become a volunteer?
