A really interesting space to explore in the centre of town which celebrates the success of the Calgary Olympics as well as Canadian suffragettes. Winter sports available.

A must-see attraction when in Calgary. A strange mixture of design ideas, but interesting Olympic facts and pavement with names of people and businesses. With a nice central ice skating rink.

We were walking towards Studio Bell and stopped to listen to music and performers in the park. Nice place to just relax in an urban environment.

Directly west of City Hall, there are lots of places to sit and relax. During the winter, the reflecting pond becomes an ice rink.

Walking from our hotel to Calgary City Hall permitted us to walk through Olympic Plaza. This park was constructed for the 1988 Winter Olympics as a gathering place for people to experience the awarding of medals during the games. The park has a floor made...More

This was the high point of the brief history of this young city, when it hosted the Winter Olympics in 1988. The media winners were honoured here in the Olympic Plaza every evening. Today it is a beautifully maintained park and garden with space for...More
