Park
“One of the most beautiful and historic parks in Calgary. At one time Bowness park served as a vacation get away for Calgarians. A place to swim, relax, socialize and play. It still serves as a beautiful place to engage in wonderful family and romantic events!”

Café
“This has one of the best breakfasts in the city let alone Bowness. People come from all over Calgary to enjoy an eggs benedict here on the weekends or an exceptionally perfected drink by one of the delightful baristas. If you like local art this coffee shop regularly hosts and features amazing artwork by local artists. This is also where one goes to fuel up before heading to the mountains, you'll see a wonderful mix of people here usually wearing outdoor adventure ready clothes. ”
