  • Great place to visit, always fun, always lots going on here. Would recommend if you've never been. They keep the grounds immaculate here, beautiful grass and trees, always so clean. World class show jumping. Great food selections. Lots to see for the kids; train rides, face painting, carousel. They don't charge nearly enough money to come either as admission is only $5 for adults and kids are free.
  • I cannot commend the staff of this excellent venue enough. From security folk greeting us as we wended our way in, to the chap driving the golf cart that assisted a couple of the less-mobile of our group, and on down. The Southerns have done Calgary proud in creating this magnificent facility.
  • Spruce Meadows brings much pride for our city and country! We were there for the Rolex Grand Prix and we enjoyed every second of our time. The staff are all friendly and the place is welcoming and sophisticated.
  • It was a very nice property and the grass and flowers were beautiful. Saw Aladdin at Movies at the Meadows and it was a excellent time for me and my kids. Would have given 5 stars but the train and carousel & food truck and tent were rather pricey.
  • An awesome place to go - admission is only $5 and if there are shows in the international ring those are the best to go to. Eating and drinking there adds up but the grounds are gorgeous and there is a lot to do for kids and adults. Dogs are welcome on leash. Beautiful in summer and winter - check the website for the schedule.
