“Outstanding area”
Review of Olympic Plaza

Olympic Plaza
Ranked #37 of 263 things to do in Calgary
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 12, 2018

Beautifully clean area with an abundance of wildlife including lovely cheeky squirrels. During our stay in Calgary we passed the plaza several times and it was always bustling with different activities and artists displaying street art. It is a lovely place and feels like a true centre for activity and community. The people who look after the park have obviously put in alot of effort to keep the place clean and tidy.

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.

I love Olympic Plaza as there is always something going on or it is just nice to sit and read over lunch hour. This summer we saw the big red ball there! Too funny!

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.
