Olympic Plaza is awesome. Located about 10 steps from the C-Train station, Olympic Plaza is conveniently located right next to Theatre Calgary, and about a block from awesome restaurants. It is also right next to The Famous 5 statue, be sure to check it out. Be sure to check out the rainbow-colored gophers that are on the wall near the skating rink. In Winter, there is free Ice skating on the rink near the rainbow gophers, you will definitely not miss it. In the little booth near the Theatre, you can rent skates for about 5 dollars. It is also very close to the Glenbow Museum. A must-see if you are in Calgary.

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.

it's a small inner-city place that's got little to promote it. Reminds me of the usual half-hearted effort that Canadian cities erect but which just fit into the landscape of the city core.
I'd not recommend this insipid effort to anyone. Better to go to the ambassadors of big and beautiful, the nearby Rocky Mountains. Now they are impressive!

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 up of red brick and during the construction phase, the citizens of Calgary were invited to purchase a brick which was engraved with their names. We were living in Calgary at that time and proudly purchased a brick.
This week while visiting Calgary I searched and found “our brick” and pleasant memories of the past flooded back to me. Now the park includes an outdoor skating rink which was filled with many skaters from toddler to senior enjoying the mild Calgary evening by skating downtown under the lights.
