    We came to the city for Easter weekend and did the Easter Egg scavenger hunt at the zoo. The kids loved it and had so much fun looking for all the eggs. All the animals were out and when we had to go inside for anything, it was very covid friendly and there were signs stating when masks were mandatory. The sun was shining, it was such a Lovely day.

    Prince's Island Park is a beautiful place all year. In winter, the paths are cleared nicely of snow, so it's mainly for strolling and letting the little ones run around. In the rest of the year, it has everything you want from a park. Places to walk and play, playground equipment, flowers, huge trees, a lagoon, birds and squirrels, a great, but albeit expensive restaurant, and a fascinating natural area on the east side. I don't know when the new bridge will be done but many Calgarians will be very thankful when it is, as access from the south is currently only from a narrow bridge on the east side, or the wider causeway on the west, not far from the Peace Bridge.

    During the snow season, October to April, the Bow River is still gorgeous and a delight to look at. Calgary's brilliant pathways and parks offer many places to access the river views safely. Some are tempted by the apparently thick ice on the shore, but that can be HIGHLY dangerous and must be avoided.

    We visited Calgary Tower prior to our dinner reservation for the Sky 360 rotating restaurant. From previous reviews I had understood your dinner reservation included access to the tower’s observation deck, but when we arrived we discovered the offer has changed to a “discounted fee” with tickets available fro the gift shop.

    The gift shop attendant was very helpful and friendly, offering us helpful advice about our visit, and recommended we not pay the extra fee for access to the observation deck as the views are better from the restaurant level which we would be visiting anyway. I did purchase a lovely t-shirt in the gift shop, but when we asked about an item we had seen displayed in the window, it was unavailable. Apparently, the stock in the gift shop was low as we were visiting outside of peak tourist season, which was a bit disappointing.

    We very much enjoyed our experience at the restaurant, and the views are incredible. See my separate review of Sky 360 for further details.

    Excellent history in music history, lots of hands on exhibits and interactive displays. Just a tad disappointing that a Crash Test Dummies, Our Lady Peace, Moist, Edwin, I Mother Earth, Tom Cochrane or The Tea Party display is nowhere to be found or at least that I could see. Hopefully, one day!

    Liked the sculpture, very different and fun to be able to walk inside it. Easy to get to as we went late on Sunday afternoon, very little traffic/people around.

    We were here on a weekday morning around 10 am, and this "park" is spectacular. There is something for everyone - a wading pool for the kids, boats on the water in which to cruise, a playground, plenty of trails for dog walking and running, benches for contemplation and a small cafe which is superb. The cafe stocks delicious snacks, baking, light lunches and assorted coffee, and, the server was extremely pleasant and professional. This is a fantastic spot for anyone wanting a day or just a morning or afternoon away. Photographers as well will enjoy this spot, and parking is plentiful.

    Stephen Avenue Walk is a wonderful place all year. It's a bit tricky when it's cold in the winter to enjoy it as much, but Calgary has inaugurated a couple of winter festivals, Chinook Blast and Calgary Glow, to make this amazing place more inviting at that time. The festivals are slightly different, but their operations overlap, and so to know more about them, you DO need to consult their web sites. It's brilliant for families with kids, adults who just want to see something unique, photographers, anybody who just wants to get out in on a winter's evening. It VERY well organized, washrooms, fire pits, things to see and do. If you live in Calgary, or are visiting, DO NOT miss Stephen Avenue Walk during the winter festivals!

    When COVID protocols were in place and indoor dining was not allowed, my friend and I would meet, bring a coffee or buy one at Annie's in the Park, sit with our chairs, social-distance and enjoy the beautiful setting and outdoors.

    Very interesting architecture, loved the color, so different from the other river bridges and walkways. A lovely way to walk across the river and into the city.

    Very informative and educational about the Canadian military. Lots of different room about the Navy, army and Air Force. However our favourite section was the hangers with the very kind and very attentive Stuart! If you’re ever planning to go here I hope you bump into Stuart to have a lovely conversation about combat in the air. He had such a vast knowledge about the Air Force and was very personable. He made myself and my partner want to keep learning which is rare for us!!

    Fabulous to have them reopen for 2021 - missed them in 2020. Great vendors and good social distancing and COVID protocols in place. Thanks.
