Calgary is a beautiful and vibrant city. Calgarians are naturally outdoorsy and outgoing. And, as a buyer in the Calgary real estate market, you’ll notice that the houses that you’re viewing are never far from a park; some occupying large swaths of Calgary. In fact, Nose Hill Park is one of the largest municipal parks in North America. When we’ve paused long enough, Calgarians are voracious patrons of the arts. We flock to educational attractions like the zoo and the science centre in droves. These are widely entertaining venues for the pint-sized among us and for those young at heart. Here are some of the more popular and unique venues and attractions in and around Calgary.
