PARKING LOT CONSTRUCTION - MAY TO JULY 2017:

Parking Construction 2017The parking lot at Rotary Recreation Park has come to the end of its lifecycle and needs to be re-paved. The new parking lot design will improve traffic flow, lighting and storm water management. Work is scheduled to begin early May 2017 and continue until July 2017 (weather dependent). 

While parking is limited on site, parking is available at the gravel lot near the Tennis Courts, the Sorensen Station Parkade and the surface lot P7 adjacent to the Blue Grass Sod Farm Central Spray and Play. MAG visitors can also park at the MAG staff parking lot, behind the museum.

Bring your family and friends and join us at the MAG. While in the “Remarkable Red Deer” exhibit, select a special movie in the BMO Capitol Theatre or play some tunes on the jukebox in the Club Café. Then take a walk of discovery while touring our often changing local and travelling exhibitions.
