Be part of the excitement and take in the unique experience you can only find downtown with arts, entertainment, food and fun! See new and old collide on the Historic Stephen Avenue Walk pedestrian mall, chock full of boutiques, the CORE Shopping Centre, world-class restaurants and more. With beautiful sandstone building contrasting against high-rise towers, you’ll find something for everyone. Keep walking west and you’ll find Olympic Plaza, the scene for much of the celebration during Calgary 1988 Winter Olympics. The site is still used regularly as a meeting place and outdoor concert venue. While you’re downtown, don’t forget to visit our Chinatown, Eau Claire Market and the beautiful Prince’s Island Park. Described as an urban oasis nestled along the Bow River in Downtown Calgary, you can commune with nature and take in some shopping, dinner and even a splash in the outdoor splash pool. Cap the night off with a delightful stroll down a stretch of Downtown Calgary’s extensive river pathway system.
