This is small but beautiful and ever so well kept. It's a wonderful area of tranquility right in the middle of Downtown Calgary

My kids just loved wading around and messing with the fountain parts. A lovely escape from the city heat. I just sat in the sunshine and people watched. It was peaceful and pleasant. Very nice right in the centre of a big city.

It's a little oasis in the city. It's located just off Stephens Ave. When we stumbled upon it there was an outdoor concert going on. It was Calgary Youth Theater they were singing and dancing. There was kids paddling in the fountain which I've read...More

Olympic Plaza, centrally located downtown, near the Performing Centre, is a gathering place where free special events often take place. During the summer and fall you will find festivals, buskers and people just enjoying sitting on the steps eating lunch. Often times there is some...More

Olympic Plaza has been my favorite place in downtown Calgary since I knew this place. This plaza is only a small patch of land, but you can walk and relax here. It's a kind of breathing space in downtown. Downtown workers come out to eat...More

We take our children to skate at the Olympic Plaza and absolutely loved the whole experience. It was lite up and the ice had an excellent surface. While downtown Calgary what a great opportunity to go and dine out as well.

As waving banners still attest, this well-kept, small Plaza on the C Line is where the 1988 Olympic Winter Games medal ceremonies took place. It’s not a smart place for inline skaters, bicyclists, dog-walkers, or even smokers, but it is one for walkers and sun-seekers...More
