“Riley Park is a widely-used recreational space within my constituency of Calgary Mountain View, by children and adults alike, may of which are accompanied by beloved pet dogs, all of whom require access to clean drinking water, particularly in the hot summer months.” Dr. David Swann, MLA, Calgary Mountain View
“As an owner of a small business in Sunnyside as well as a frequent visitor to Riley Park I fully support the proposal for building a water fountain in the park. Having dependable access to water is practical in so many ways. Ensuring people and pets stay hydrated, hopefully reducing the use of single use plastic bottles, and the accumulation of these bottles in the park. I also believe it will increase park usage by allowing people to stay and enjoy the park for longer periods of time.” Patty Nowlin, co-owner, Sunnyside Natural Market
Barbara Gosling, Managing Partner, Nulli Identity Management
“A fountain in Riley Park that also serves as an inspiration for art and creativity in the heart of the community would be a huge asset to the social and cultural capital of Hillhurst. Calgarians near and far enjoy Riley Park and a water fountain would greatly enhance the enjoyment of the heavily utitlised public space.”
