History:
The Centennial Ravine Park Society was incorporated in 1965 to promote the development of a park in the large ravine between 4th and 24th Streets in northwest Calgary, Alberta. Eric Musgreave, 1921-2000, was an instigator, and later president, of the society. Memberships were sold and individuals and groups were encouraged to help furnish the park through various projects and tree planting. The land was officially set aside as a park when Calgary City Council passed Bylaw 7086, and on August 7, 1967 it was named Confederation Park. The society's funds were later transferred to the city, and the society was dissolved in 1970.
