Conveniently located in the heart of southwest Calgary, Heritage Park is situated on a 127-acre peninsula of prime parkland surrounded on three sides by the Glenmore Reservoir. The majestic Rocky Mountains form a fitting backdrop that completes the Park’s beautiful surroundings. The Park now has over 180 exhibits and service structures; 50% relocated and restored originals, 25% replicas, and 25% analogues.
Facilities development and maintenance are directed by the collective vision of the Board, management, and staff, and are made possible by the availability of suitable historic building stock and available funding for restoration, replication, or upkeep. The present direction in facilities development is to add certain key exhibits and service structures identified in the Master Plan. The implementation of a life-cycle maintenance plan is an example of the emphasis now being placed on stewardship.
