Who doesn’t love a long weekend! For me, long weekends give me the chance to think about going to places that I haven’t gotten to explore before. They don’t have to be far away, but the extra day seems like an extra life’s worth of time when I’m thinking about what to see and when to see it.
This past weekend, we used the extra day to visit the Discovery Wildlife Park. It’s small zoo a few blocks from downtown Innisfail, which is about an hour north of Calgary. I noticed the a sign for Discovery Wildlife Park last year and checked out their website. Well, it has all the pertinent information I needed, like reading that all the animals were rescues or orphans, given that I hadn’t heard about this place before, I wasn’t expecting it to really wow me. Boy was I wrong and I knew it from the second I drove up.
