Had the opportunity to attend the dog show at this facility. Love the grounds and location of this facility. Well taken care of. Easy to get to once you get out of Calgary. Much better location for this dog show considering some of the past locations they have had.

Yeah, a park to honour horses and equestrians. But celebrates the Canadian west and its culture in an elegant fashion. And lots to do and see, especially when an event is on. You need to check the website for activities. But it also provides excellent conference and meeting facilities. In an interesting out of the way locale. Free parking (that... More

Calgary is so fortunate to have such a venue on their doorstep. We are able to watch top notch international equestrian riders for only $5 entry fee! Where else can you get so much for $5? As well, you get the chance to watch some up and coming equestrian riders as Spruce Meadows offers the opportunity for amateur and junior... More

Attended a 4-day dog show here. Beautiful facilities and well-groomed grounds. Increasingly dog shows are held at deteriorating fairgrounds with grooming in dark, damp smelly rotting stalls. These facilities were gorgeous and seemed almost new. And the grass was green and well care-for. Food concession was fresh and good but expensive - $3.40 for a bottle of water. The humidity... More

Fantastic equestrian experience. Wonderful park like setting that is well manicured and looked after generally. This year marked 40 yrs of Spruce meadows and they were celebrating with free breakfast for 3000 people and General Admission was free. Seating can be booked for the International Ring. The International Show jumping ring was wonderful with some really top Show Jumping as... More

I am so happy that we live only 15 minutes away from this wonderful facility and we can go there any day we wish. I take all my visitors to show them around whether there is an event on or not. Ron and Marg Southern, who own the property, have invited the public to visit 365 days a year since... More

I love the Christmas Market at Spruce Meadows. It really gets you in the spirit and there are so many things to see. Be prepared and plan ahead. If you want to really enjoy your time here, make sure you get here when the gates open. It is busy all the time but at least you will get a parking... More

Oh, that I should live in Calgary! What an incredible gift to the city, if not to all of Canada, that Spruce Meadows has become. Ron and Marg Southern have put so much love into this world-class equestrian centre, and whose reins (pun intended!) are now under the guidance of their daughter, Nancy. We were there, recently, attending the 'North... More
