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.
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.
