There are so many amazing things to do in Calgary. Below is a short list of some of the most original and fun places for families.

The Calgary Zoo

Saying there is so much to see and do at the zoo doesn’t begin to describe everything that you can do there. Besides getting to see some amazing animals from all over the world you can journey through the dinosaur park and learn about the giants from the past. 1300 Zoo Road NE

Village Square & Southland Leisure Centres

There is so much to do and a whole lot of fun to be had. From the water parks with a wave pool, dive tank, kiddies pool and hot tub to the gymnasium, weight rooms and fitness studios. Village Square: 2623 - 56 Street NE
Southland: 2000 Southland Drive SW

Heritage Park

This is Canada’s largest living history museum. Meet friendly pioneers, ride the steam train or cruise Glenmore Lake on the SS, enjoy the antique midway and be a part of the old west. 1900 Heritage Drive SW

Butterfield Acres

Butterfield Acres is a great place to take the family and just watch animals eat hay and forget about the city! It is like a small farm which can be a lot of fun for little kids who have never seen live farm animals before. 254077 Rocky Ridge Road NW

Canada Olympic Park

This is a great place to visit at any time of the year. Whether you enjoy skiing or snowboarding in the winter or mountain biking or checking out the Skyline zip line in the summer. 88 Canada Olympic Road SW

Telus Spark

Formerly the Telus World of Science, this hands-on science museum has exhibits and demonstrations for the whole family. 220 St. George’s Drive NE

Bowness Park

Bowness Park is located in NW Calgary along the Bow River. A shallow lagoon runs along the park’s southern edge, a favourite spot for paddle boating in the summer and ice skating in the winter. Bowness Park is highly used for picnicking and accessing the Bow River. 8900 - 48 Avenue NW

Peter’s Drive-In

There is nothing better than a cold milkshake on a hot day. Maybe you are hungry for a little more. Then you will have to try their burgers, fries and onion rings. You will definitely come back for more. 219 - 16 Avenue NE

Fish Creek Provincial Park

Fish Creek Park is Canada’s largest urban park. The park contains a mix of forest and open prairie. Historic Bow Valley Ranch House (now a restaurant), archaeological sites, visitor centre and extensive environmental education programs are some of the parks attractions. 15979 Southeast Calgary
