dc.description.abstract"Nose Hill" is the name given to an elevated plain located in north Calgary, Alberta. This document, representing the first stage of a master planning study, presents three alternative concepts for a recommended 2740 acre (1109 hectare) park on Nose Hill. The park environment is described as a grassland plateau defined by five major coulees supporting grassland, aspen grove and shrub vegetation. About 200 plant species, 70 bird species and 15 mammal species have been identified on the hill. Nose Hill is proposed for designation as a "natural environment" park in order to preserve its natural and visual qualities and to provide for compatible recreational activities. Of the five park zones used to distinguish management strategies, a "natural environment" zone is assigned to the majority of the park in all concepts. Each of the three concepts emphasizes different objectives by means of a unique combination of recreation facility/activity options . Concept 1 proposes minor development but includes a visitor/interpretive centre, amphitheatre, and arboretum. Concept 2 offers a wide range of recreation opportunity by including a visitor centre, recreational lake, tennis courts, lawnbowling green, horseshoe pitch, sportsfields, overnight campgrounds, chip and putt golf course, hang-gliding area, and downhill skiing area. Concept 3 proposes a moderate level of development and features a visitor/interpretive centre, amphitheatre, equestrian centre and cross-country course, hang-gliding area, and downhill skiing area. Development cost estimates are $7.4 million for Concept 1, $17.7 mill ion for Concept 2, and $10 . 8 million for Concept 3.
