Why would you come to a presentation about the Olmsted design of Scarboro?  
Because residents might want to have Scarboro designated as a Heritage Area. 
This way, the City can help protect our streetscapes, our parks, and our heritage character.

Come to the talk to find out more about why Scarboro is a heritage asset for all Calgarians to celebrate!  

What do Central Park, New York City; Mount Royal, Montreal and Scarboro, Calgary all have in common? They were designed by the Olmsted Firm.

Come to a FREE film screening & public lecture to learn why Scarboro is a heritage asset & to discuss strategies for dealing with changes in city planning. 

Lecture & Film Screening by 
Laurence Cotton
