Once again along with the overdue arrival of warm weather comes another arrival of sorts as the Mountain Bike Park at Canada Olympic Park opens for the season this Friday, June 22.


The park features designs by Whistler’s Gravity Logic and has something for all skill levels from flowing green trails with pump tracks, to blue jump trails and all the way up to expert-only black trails.  The trails offer loads of excitement and features like teeter-totters, bridges, drops and skinnies.


All the fun of grand opening weekend kicks off on Friday at 5:00 PM and runs until 9:00 PM and then again on the weekend from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM both days.

Have fun on the trails!




Another Best of NW Calgary Spring opening to announce as Calaway Park is set to kick off their 2011 season on Friday, May 21.  This year will represent a milestone for the park as they enter their 30th year of operation.


I have many fond memories of Calaway Park; from the opening season, to the Gowan concert (yes, I went and it was great), right up to a few seasons ago taking my kids there for the first time and being very impressed with the cleanliness, friendliness and overall operation of the facility.


 Calaway has grown from a small facility in 1981 with just 14 rides and attractions into Western Canada’s largest outdoor family amusement park boasting 34 rides, 23 food locations, 25 skill-testing games and 4 attractions.  This year’s new addition is the scream-producing Mind Blaster ride that will roll, spin and thrill the most adventurous ride enthusiasts.


For all the information about opening weekend, amenities and events as well as day and season pass prices visit the official Calaway Park website by clicking the link below.


Most importantly, have fun and remember; if you’re sitting at the front of the Shoot the Chutes ride - duck at the bottom and soak everyone behind you!




Along with the arrival of the overdue warm weather garages are finally opening and being cleaned out, lawnmowers are firing up and people are reacquainting themselves with the great outdoors.  People embarking on the latter of the three tasks will have more options very shortly as the summer venues at Canada Olympic park are set to open up, weather permitting of course, on Saturday, May 21.

The facilities that are opening up include the mountain bike courses and lifts, zip line, mini golf, Eurobungy, Climbing Wall & Spiderweb with the summer bobsleigh course slated to start thrilling brave tourists and fellow Calgarians on Saturday, June 18.  For hours of operation and rates, go to the Canada Olympic Park website by clicking on the link below.

Canada Olympic Park operated by WinSport Canada, is a world-class recreation facility offering year-round activities, events and tours.  If you haven’t visited the park for a while, stop by and experience the numerous upgrades and all the new facilities.
