Landmarks & Buildings Attractions & Entertainment

There’s no denying Albertans are good at building new things. Take a look the glittering downtowns of the big cities. The structures from the past tell stories of Alberta’s booms and busts. • Now you know: Sandstone was the building material of choice a century ago. Check it out in the Beaux Arts style provincial Legislature Building in Edmonton and throughout Calgary’s downtown. • Ask the pros: The Historical Society of Alberta makes sure nobody forgets the good old days and the stories behind heritage buildings. Check out their Alberta playlist, especially on Heritage Day in August.

St. Patrick's Island

Calgary, Alberta

Just a skipping stone away from East Village, across the George C. King Bridge (formerly St. Patrick's Bridge), St. Patrick’s Island opened in 2015, offering East Village residents and all Calgarians a beautifully revitalized 31-acre backyard. Nature lovers, families and urban explorers alike can revel in the natural beauty that has been restored through mindful renewal and a biophilia master plan – a landscape design approach that nurtures the bond between people and nature.
