Discover and Explore

This city has many attractions and exciting things to do. These include the zoo, the second largest in Canada. Calaway Park, the largest amusement park in western Canada. Devonian Gardens, one of the largest indoor parks in the world. Heritage Park, an historical park, the largest of it's kind in Canada. As well as many others.

There are competitive sports teams to cheer on. The Calgary Flames, the much loved hockey team, won the stanley cup in 1988-89. Their presence in the 2004 stanley cup finals created what is now called the Red Mile.

The Red Mile is the name given to a section of 17th avenue SW. During the playoff run of 2004 fans gathered dressed in red (Flames colours) in support of their team. The world took notice as over 50,000 fans gathered to cheer on their team without violence.

This speaks to the character of the city and to its people, friendly, welcoming and inclusive.
