Calgary Chieftains have applied to the Field Law Community Fund with the Calgary Kangaroos, Calgary Kookaburras and River Valley School to upgrade playing fields at Bowness for our sport-specific use. If successful, this will be first full-size GAA field in Western Canada and an important hub for the development of Gaelic games in Calgary.
