Central Memorial Park is a large public space in the heart of downtown Calgary. Redeveloped in the summer of 2010, Central Memorial Park has been rejuvenated by The City of Calgary Parks department. The major concept of this park was to recreate the landscape following the original design that was constructed approximately 100 years ago. One of the biggest elements of the recreation was the intricate pathway system, which allows visitors to access every corner of the site at any angle. The path is made up of City of Calgary trail mix and a discrete heavy aluminum edger, which overall gives the pathway a natural appearance and captures the essence of the original design. Another unique feature of this park is the annual/perennial planting bed designs, which add interest and bring a lot of attention to the seasonal plantings. A majority of the plantings were preserved from the original park and the topsoil mix was recreated to match the original composition...More

Maligne Canyon is located in Jasper National Park. There is a one to two hour hike that you can do that has six bridges in total and is approximately 3.5 km long one way. Although there are six, my favorite place to start this hike is at the fifth bridge (there is a beautiful picnic area there, and it cuts a little bit of time off your hike). There are a number of springs, where water flows beneath you under limestone boulders. When you are hiking upstream, you will find that the springs become more frequent and dramatic. The Maligne valley narrows to a canyon as you reach the fourth bridge and the views get even better! The sound of the canyon is so amazing and this is one of my favorite places to go in Jasper! Make sure you wear comfortable hiking/running shoes and dress appropriately. Don't forget your camera and binoculars too...More

Waterton. Where epic prairie skies meet majestic mountain grandeur. Nestled in the corner of southwest Alberta lies 505 square kilometres of rugged windswept beauty. Chinook country.
