Towering high over Drumheller, the World's Largest Dinosaur is open year round for dino-enthusiasts of all ages to explore. Climb 106 stairs inside the 26 m tall T-rex, lined with beautiful murals, and admire the breathtaking badlands from her gaping jaw. Admission is charged and there is a gift shop, Visitor Information Centre and public toilets onsite.
The town of Trochu, located about an hour southeast of Red Deer, is home to the world's largest golf tee. The towering 12-m tall tee stands just outside the Trochu Golf and Country Club.
The bluff runs along the northern bank of the Bow River as it flows through the centre of the city. It was named after Felix McHugh, who homesteaded this property and was a prominent early entrepreneur. In 2004, Calgary launched a project to restore and develop the bluff into a natural park. Though the park is close to the city centre, because of the steep grade it does not have a history of intensive human use. Currently however, on any given day, there is an extremely high volume of commuters, joggers and dog walkers using the lateral pathways and trails.
