1. The Calgary Zoo[image[31].png]

The Calgary Zoo is a surprisingly nice place to go in the winter. It’s way less crowded and there’s still a lot to see. It also has quite of lot of indoor exhibits so you don’t have to stay out in the cold the whole time. This is a great place for kids of all ages and adults alike.

2. Cardel Place Swimming Pool[image[1].png]

Cardel Place is home to one of the best pools in the city. It’s bright with high ceilings, a great toddler pool with spray features, a big shallow end with water park features, a lazy river and a hot tub. You can also access the gyms and climbing wall for the same price of admission.

3.  Calgary Airport

Although the parking is not cheap, the airport has a lot to offer for kids.  The biggest draw is of course the airplanes which you can even see right out the large windows at the 2nd floor play area (great for school aged kids).  The Spaceport provides a lot of interesting material for older kids (and adults) interested in NASA space programs.
