  • We really enjoyed our time wandering around Downtown Calgary and looking at all the interesting sites that seem to appear around the next corner. One of these is Olympic Plaza.  more »
  • We stayed in Calgary for our first night on an organised Saga holiday from UK through to Banff, Jasper, Rocky Mountaineer and cruise to Alaska. We had a drive around the sights on the way from the air...  more »
  • Awesome for young families in summer, huge wading pool. Well manicured grounds. Fun little ground squirrel figures placed all over the lawns.  more »

  • It's a nice year round venue. In the summer the wading pool is there to help you cool off. In winter it becomes a skating rink. In the evening it can become a bit sketchy. At least in the past it has been. Sometimes there are events here as well.
  • In the winter this place is the best for skating, the park closes at 11pm and opens up pretty early in the morning so it's always accessible. At night, the lights turn on and skating under them is magical. There are no skate rentals for this place though. There is a washroom on premise, but no heater, so the water is freezing during the winter. In the summer, the rink becomes a massive water fountain and it's always a pleasure to watch people play in the water. It's a great place to lounge around, meet up with friends, and read in the golden sun.
  • Favorite place in the city. Lots of cute events happen here. It's definitely a fantastic place to check out. Small, adorable and just perfect!
  • Beautiful plaza with a giant fountain in the summer that doubles as a skating rink in the winter. A lot of cute events, performances, and festivals happen at the plaza all year round which is great. Located near Stephen Ave. which has many restaurants/bars/lounges to go to afterwards.
  • It's really pretty but there are a lot of.. Interesting.. People who frequent out at night. So that feels pretty sketchy.
