When you’re stuck in the city in summer, it can be a challenge to keep those ankle-biters occupied – especially if not not in summer camp. Not no matter if you’re situated in a suburb or based downtown, there’s plenty of things to do in Calgary with kids. Here are a few of my favourite spots to go to with my daughter, Eve.

Calgary with Kids
For the most part, I’ll be detailing our favourite Calgary activities in the downtown core. I’ve found one of the best things to do with kids is to flip the script. When you do the unexpected it’s more memorable. You can always go to your local park, but have you ever explored all the parks and attractions downtown with your kids? Here’s a game plan.
Probably my daughter’s favourite park is Century Gardens. Never heard of it? I’m not surprised. It’s the 70s-style, urban park the Nexen building overlooks on 8 Ave. and 8 St., SW. I remember playing here as a kid, waiting for my sister to finish her secretarial duties at some law firm. Now I take Eve, and watch her run and leap across the water features.
