Downtown Calgary

Calgary's Community Downtown Calgary

From a distance, the view of Calgary’s skyline is what you would expect from a city of over 1.2 million people. But, when you find yourself in and amongst our downtown, you experience just how diverse and unique it is to Calgary. The Bow and Elbow Rivers border much of the area. These rivers offer mature, lush landscaping, and adjacent pathways that flow with families, cyclists and river walkers. Cultural landmarks like the Bow building, New Central Library, National Music Centre and Glenbow Museum not only impress, but invite you in to explore and learn. Heritage buildings like Old City Hall, Calgary Public Building, and the Calgary Tower remind us of our history.

This is not just another downtown – this is Calgary’s Community.​
