The Calgary Tower is a prominent downtown feature. The observation deck provides views of the city's tall buildings as well as it's landscapes and suburbs. Audio guides are available. Nice way to spend a half hour.

The closest parking to us is the Palliser parkade, which is attached to our building complex. Entrance to the parkade is off 10th avenue.
