Fort Calgary

An interpretation centre recounts the history of the fort since the city's foundation. Visitors, attired in full Mountie uniform should they so wish, will follow a pathway past the stables, blacksmith-farrier's shop, carpenter's shop and barracks (costumed interpreters). The visit includes Deane House, former home to the superintendent, and now a restaurant. Paths through the park command views of the Bow River and a pedestrian bridge allows access to St. George's Island and the zoo.
