  • 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.  more »
  • 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.  more »
  • 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!  more »

  • It is large a roomy park in the middle of the city, with a huge wading pool in the middle if it rhat has a number of water features in it. When we were there they had a Children's Festival going on. There were a lot tents and exhibits at the time so it was hard to see what the plaza would be like on a normal day. But the laughter and squeals from the kids made up for the crowds.
  • Awesome ice skating place, ice is well prepared in the morning, became busier after the lunch time on the dares during the weekend. free to public. Bring your own skates, pick a date that is not so cold. I believe the ice has the professional equipment, cooling and ice making system there. I think there is a skate rental and service shop nearby too. The location is amongst great view of the high rises such as the Bow, the nee Telus Sky, Suncor Energy Centre, the Calgary Tower. It is right between the Center Street and the City Hall Ctrain stations.
  • I love Olympic plaza all times of the year. The skating in the winter, the fountains in the summer, and all the wonderful festivals and events that take place there!
  • Neat ice rink in the park. Ice was smooth in the morning. Has some charming ... art? Nearby. Looks like a bunch of painted rodent heads along a wall. Seating around to watch or put on skates.
  • Shovel the snow please so the skating experience is more than just walking around in snow with skates. Great lights! Great music! My kids had fun :)
