There is a Lilac Me­dian on 6th Av­enue N.W. from 16th to 18th streets that dates back to 1929. The for­mal, or­dered de­sign of the me­dian re­flects the in­flu­ence of the City Beau­ti­ful Move­ment in ur­ban plan­ning within Cal­gary. One of its prin­ci­ple ini­tia­tives was the cre­ation of streets lined with trees and de­vel­oped with land­scaped boule­vards and me­di­ans. The me­dian was de­vel­oped by Wil­liam Reader, Cal­gary’s su­per­in­ten­dent of parks and ceme­ter­ies from 1913-1942.
