In the heart of Calgary, Prince’s Island Park is a large, beautiful, highly used but also peaceful park. It holds many large events throughout the year including Canada Day celebration and Calgary Folk Festival. You can hike, bike, take a stroll, canoe in the river or just simply relax in nature. Enjoy a picnic with your family and watch wildlife such as mallard ducks and Canada Geese.

Heritage Park Historical Village has a lot to offer for learning about Calgary’s History and having fun. The park has grown into one of Calgary’s number one tourist attractions and is one of North America’s largest and most successful living history museums. Throughout the year, guests can interact with nearly 100 years of history. It is the Park’s mission to preserve the history of the early West and to educate and entertain guests of all ages for many generations to come.

The plaza was built in 1988 for the Olympic Winter Games and has the only refrigerated outdoor ice surface in the city. The Olympic Plaza is a beautiful destination place for downtown Calgary workers during lunch hour with its large seating area. In the summer the counter is filled with water and acts as a fountain/wading pool and in the winter, it turns into an ice skating rink.

2018 marks the fiftieth year of the Calgary Tower defining the city’s skyline! Located 191 metres above the downtown core, the Calgary Tower offers the best view in the city and is a must-see on any visitor’s itinerary. On the Observation Deck, you’ll experience a spectacular 360° view of the bustling city, the majestic Rocky Mountains, the foothills, and the prairies. The Tower is a major tourist destination and popular dining spot. Even though it’s been eclipsed in size, the Calgary Tower is still a proud city icon.
