In the winter, the ICA operates 3 outdoor rinks, all maintained by volunteers. We have a rink suitable for any age and skill level, from a full-size rink to the beginner (pleasure) rink. The heated Skate Shack has toilet/change rooms and a concession, and is open during peak skating times.
The old (and notoriously dangerous weir) was replaced in 2012 with new recreational channels. However the passage suffered significant damage during the June 2013 floods and has been closed to the public since August 2013.
Fort Calgary is the birthplace of the city of Calgary, and the original location of the North West Mounted Police fort built at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers in 1875. They offer interactive exhibits, tours, school programs, weekend brunch and so much more. The Deane House is closed for renovations until 2016.
There are countless things to do at the Calgary Zoo. Highlights include the Penguin Plunge, Destination Africa, the Conservatory & Gardens, and don’t forget dinosaurs in the Prehistoric Park. Giant Pandas will be arriving in 2018 for a five-year visit. The Zoo also hosts several special events throughout the year, including the annual Zoolights in December.
The Calgary Zoo is fully open after the devastating floods of 2013. However, starting in 2016, flood mitigation work is being done on the south side of the zoo, resulting in vehicular access only from the north entrance in Bridgeland. Inglewood residents with annual Zoo Passes can obtain a Pedestrian Pass to access the Zoo from the south security gate. Contact Councillor Carra’s office at 403-268-5330 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
