    I loved this place. Well worth a visit. The attention to detail is outstanding, all the volunteers are so knowledgeable and friendly and the train is a must.

    Calgary zoo is one of the best zoos we’ve ever been to! The animal enclosures are amazing. The penguin exhibit was best I’ve ever seen, such a great experience! The zoo was clean, staff were friendly & food prices reasonable. If we lived closer, we’d be going often. I highly recommend checking it out. Great for all ages, young & old!

    We had a 2 day package so entry to both the afternoon and evening shows.
    Both were exceptionally good. Plenty of excitement with the rodeo etc, but also the fairground and plenty of other side shows, agriculture displays, minature horses, plenty for all types of people. The evening show was impressive.
    If you get the chance to go then you should.

    From my hotel downtown, I walked about 4 miles around the park and along the river. Nice, clean, well-manicured with plenty of shade. Paved and flat throughout the park so easy for people of all ages to enjoy walking, running, and biking. It was not crowded at all on a Friday morning. Pretty bridges and sights of the Bow River. Easy access to downtown.

    Pleasant walk along the river. Has a lot of bridges that links roads across the river. Joggers and cyclists are often seen enjoying the open spaces. Nice to see the geese and goslings roaming around.

    These things all seem the same but I enjoyed this one. Many good views of the city and mountains off in the distance. Informative signs throughout. No line at all when we went the last week of July and not crowded at the top. It is not temporarily closed as the review says

    Wow! Fabulous history of Canadian music, including Québécois, in a stunning setting at a very reasonable pay-what-you-can price of $15. There was a Buffy Sainte Marie exhibition with many artifacts covering the many aspects of her career. The permanent exhibits included historical recordings and fun interactive stations. When was I ever going to have the opportunity to play a theramin?

    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.

    The Air Force Cold War Museum was very interesting with world class presentation. Especially good for boomer age people who lived through the Cold War. The building was so plain compared to the main museum I was not expecting much. It turned out that the building is a replica of structures used during the Cold War. So do not be fooled by the exterior.
    Our docent Ray was so well informed and has a knack for explanations.

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