We decided to give the Prince's Island lagoon a skate. The ice over Christmas was rough but that is outdoor skating. Don't forget to get your kids skates sharpened before the next game yikes the outdoor ice is hard on edges. It get skating in the shadows of all the big downtown buildings. There are a number of benches to... More

I love Shakespeare in the park every summer. The trees and landscape make for great engagement photos and you can always find a fun event for Canada Day with food trucks and yummy gelato places.

A lovely quiet place along the river, lovely to walk. There are also some very nice bridges along the river, particularly the Peace Bridge is futuristic and worth to see. Other bridges become alive during the night when set alight.

This park is truly the "heart of Calgary". The variety of festivals and events that take place here are incredible. One minute you're watching A Comedy of Errors by Shakespeare and the next you're learning authentic dances from an African-Canadian during Afrikadey! Bring a Frisbee and some friends and you can spend hours playing in the open spaces, stopping in... More

We come here everytime we want to have a stroll, picnic, and any small family gatherings. A lot of festivals usually occur here during the summer, some free and some are not. Yet, whatever it is that you decide to come here for it is a nice and cheap place to just walk around. There is also a water park... More

Beautiful little place, perfect to get a little rest from the loud noise of downtown- even in the evening, when it's getting dark, still a nice and not scary place to be- especially for a woman.
