Take a seat and make time to read the plaque. Lovely spot away from the hustle and bustle and well worth the visit. Great spot to take the family and having a subtle teaching moment.

Stopped by on a groupon scavenger hunt. Probably should have looked at/read this exhibit prior to that. If you are at Arts Common or Olympic Park, have a quick look see to respect where we came from and where we need to continue going.

It is always wonderful to wander around Calgary. There is so much public art that you can happen upon. These statues are delightful and caused much conversation among us. Nicely done.

This is a lovely set of sculptures honoring these truly inspirational and incredible women in Canadian history. It’s so amazing that they are commemorated for all that they fought for for women. When ladies come together, we can accomplish anything, truly. This set of sculpture...More

Walk a block or two West to find the beautiful steampunk horse made out of tractor parts. That is where the pubs are anyway!
