  • This was the high point of the brief history of this young city, when it hosted the Winter Olympics in 1988. The media winners were honoured here in the Olympic Plaza every evening. Today it is a beau...  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.

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
