    The cottage is 2 blocks from Memorial Drive which runs along the Bow River. The memorial park and Peace bridge are located 2 blocks from the cottage and provide a lovely walking route.

    Central Memorial Park (also known as Memorial Park) is Calgary's oldest park and is located in the heart of the Beltline. Remembrance Day ceremonies are held here annually on November 11. The park totals 4.7 acres and occupies one entire city block between 11th and 12th Avenues SW, bounded by 2nd and 4th Streets.

    In 1899, William Pierce convinced the Federal Government to donate land for the park and by 1912 the park was complete and considered a civic showcase. The grounds were modeled after a formal Victorian garden featuring geometric pathways, elaborate garden beds, and rows of imported and native trees.

    I encountered this cute little park on one of my walks and was happy to sit down, relax a bit, and take it all in. It's a pretty setting and with an interesting slice of Calgary life to watch and learn.
