Sketching Event: Ralph Klein Park

July 24
10:30 – 13:00 Photo Op 13:15

Description: Shepard Wetland at Ralph Klein Park functions as both a stormwater storage facility and a treatment wetland that naturally filters stormwater, improving the quality of stormwater before it is discharged south to the Bow River. At 156 hectares (385 acres), it is the largest constructed stormwater treatment wetland in Canada. The grounds themselves have a picnic area, a community orchard that boasts five varieties of pear trees and eight varieties of apple trees, and public art, titled Hawk Hill Calgary Sentinels, by Beverly Pepper. This artwork sits on a hill and whistles when the wind blows through.
