More Southern Alberta Southern Alberta

Southern Alberta’s rural charms, lakeside villages and western history make for all kinds of adventures you just couldn’t experience anywhere else. ● Cowboy culture: Hop on a horse for a day or three. You’ll see firsthand what indigenous people, early pioneers and ranchers saw in this part of the world when it was still a wild, wild west. ● Theatre: Dinosaurs and Jesus? Yeah, it happens in the world-renowned Canadian Badlands Passion Play. ● Go local: Hit a rural or urban farmers market for local produce and grass-fed beef, pickles and preserves, artisan crafts and homegrown entertainment.

Leighton Art Centre is where art and nature come together in Southern Alberta’s Foothills. More than just a unique historic home once owned by a pair of renowned artists, it's a vibrant and open space for creativity, inspiring all who visit to explore, appreciate and create. In 2012, Barbara Leighton - a woman who lived and unconventional life and the Centre's founder - was posthumously honoured as one of '100 Outstanding Albertans' in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Calgary Stampede. Her legacy is a beautiful one indeed.

Fort Calgary

Calgary, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The heart of Calgary is red; the scarlet red of the North West Mounted Police (NWMP). In 1875, when the Mounties built their fort on the sacred land at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers, they laid the foundations for the city that we enjoy today. Today, Fort Calgary is an interpretive centre, a 40 acre park, and lots more. Visit the museum, join us for Sunday Brunch, and shop in the gift shop! Open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. all year round.

McHugh Bluff Park

Calgary, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

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.
