Calgary is a vibrant city located within breathtaking sights of the Canadian Rockies. Calgary has a compact and very modern downtown core with tall, mirrored skyscrapers on the edge of the always-blue Bow River. The city is a magnet for those who love the outdoors, with Nose Hill Park in the north, Fish Creek Provincial Park, in the city’s south end, and the parklands along the banks of the Bow and Elbow rivers. There are several hundred kilometers of recreational pathways around and through the city. And of course, it’s only an hour drive to the scenic wonders of Banff and the Rocky Mountains!
