Olympic plaza is not something you're going write home and wax poetic about. It's in Downtown, it's celebrating the Olympics that were held here, it's a mish mash of a bunch of different art and sculpture things. It's a place to hang out and just...More

A really interesting space to explore in the centre of town which celebrates the success of the Calgary Olympics as well as Canadian suffragettes. Winter sports available.
