Since its advancement as a recreation center in the 1950s, Prince's Island Park has been perceived as a urban desert garden and is a critical supporter of the social and recreational personal satisfaction for Calgarians. In March 1999, Council endorsed a redesign of the island, including wetland development and local plant reclamation. The Chevron Learning Pathway is an ecological instructive pathway on the east end of Prince's Island Park. The pathway twists around a developed wetland intended to treat storm water before entering over into the Bow River. Intriguing interpretive signage clarifies how a wetland functions and introduces significant data about natural life, living space and water quality. It is an ecological, instructive, and recreational asset that interfaces individuals with nature in an intelligent way.
