I’m a huge fan of green spaces in the middle of large metropolises. Olympic Plaza Park is just that, nestled among all of the big city buildings of downtown Calgary. There is a splash pad in the centre with the Olympic symbol in the middle. This is the perfect lunch spot or day in the park with the family as there are plenty of places to sit with shade. My favourite aspect though is the statues dedicated to the Canadian women who fought for voting rights!

In the summer there's a wading pool. During Stampede there's free activities and entertainment PLUS free pancake breakfasts in the mornings.
In the winter there's public skating.

Right in the centre of town, this plaza was where the medals were handed out during the 1988 Winter Olympics. Fun in winter when the plaza is transformed into an outdoor skating rink.

I say I like this location but that is when there are events going on. It is across from City Hall and built as a venue for medal presentations during the 1988 Winter Olympics. Unfortunately, it can also be an area with a number of homeless and inebriated individuals hanging around the area at all hours of the day when there are no events taking place.
