Marlborough Park Launch Site
The Marlborough Park location is a Low-power launch site within Calgary city limits. The event is hosted by the Calgary Rocketry club.
The City of Calgary has issued a permit to Calgary Rocketry to use the park on scheduled events as a model rocket launch site, and the Canadian Association of Rocketry (CAR/ACF) has approved the site for use by CAR/ACF members.
The park is NOT authorized as an ad-hoc model launch site by the public!
Launch events are intended to occur once a month, from May to October. Planned launches will be announced in advance of the event.
Note: There are no services on site, but this is within Calgary, so within a short drive of pretty much anything.
Range Pass Costs
- $25 for high-power
- $5 for model fliers who are not CAR-ACF members
- Free for model fliers who are CAR-ACF members
