EVENTS


In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, Lori Beattie, author of Calgary’s Best Walks, is partnering with the Calgary Public Library and Centre for Newcomers to build communities through walking.
Fresh, crisp air, big blue skies, nature tucked into all neighbourhoods, hidden stairways, over 500 km of paved pathways and wonderful independent cafe’s where you can stop and recharge.

Each walk will be approximately 2 hours in length and about 7-9 km. All ages are welcome. Interpretation in various languages will be part of every walk.
