Transit Route 158, Recycling Depots, Dale Hodges Park and More


Route 158 was changed to service the new Rocky Ridge Recreation Centre. The bus route will be routed through the recreation centre site itself with a new stop opened up at the northwest end of the building. This change will help better connect users of the Rocky Ridge Recreation Centre with convenient transit service.

Now that recycling is widely available at home and work, The City of Calgary collects less than one-quarter of what they once did through their Community Recycling Depot (CRD) network. After careful review, The City has decided to close nine of their locations. In Ward 1, the Varsity Community Recycling Depot on Varley Drive NW closure will be completed by mid-February. The nearby locations available are Market Mall at 3625 Shaganappi Tr. NW and North Hill on 1901 16 Ave NW.

The Dale Hodges Park is a new City park space that will also provide water treatment for stormwater going into the Bow River. Most of the site development was completed in 2017. Fine grading and seeding of the laydown areas will be completed, weather permitting, in the spring of 2018. The water infrastructure will be commissioned during the winter of 2018.

The City of Calgary will communicate with the public and impacted businesses about the redevelopment of the Varsity Fire Station #17 Redevelopment. For updates on this project, please call 311.

The construction of Tuscany Fire Station is aimed to be completed by the end of June 2018.
