Century Gardens is a lovely open space right in the downtown core. The City has made a number of improvements, including removing some older buildings that used to border it on the west side, so it's very open now. Also, the LRT station is on the north side of the park, so there are now a lot of people walking... More

This place is very nice. It contrasts with the downtown and you fells like be in a big and exclusive garden. Take a few minutes to hear the birds singing and the water flowing.

This tiny park in the centre of Stephen St in Calgary has several nice art features, sculptures and water features. It has several benches, and a small stream running through the middle. It is is nice place to retreat from the bustling of the city

There are zero amenities. Go... More
