This unique Calgary landmark is one of the largest in North America and the largest in Calgary. It has become a gathering place for all cultures and religions. The Ahmadiyyas follow the teachings of Muhammad, Jesus, Confucius, Buddha and Abraham. This 48,000 sq.ft. complex also offers tours, multilingual programs, and private bookings or meetings for up to 500 people in the adjoining community centre. There is a dining hall and full service kitchen on-site along with a multi-purpose gym available to groups, a library, and bookstores. This is a must see when you visit the city!
The Village of Glendon is home to the world's largest pyrogy.
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.
