Top 10 Activities for Spring

1. Telus Spark – Calgary Science Centre

Your kids will love spending a day at Calgary’s science centre. Younger kids will enjoy learning through play at the Creative Kids Museum and older kids will enjoy making creations in Open Studio upstairs. Both will enjoy the hands on exhibits of Earth and Sky and Energy and Innovation. Your admission also lets you access the Brainasium outdoor park.

2. Go Swimming

From neighborhood pools to Leisure Centres, Calgary has tons of options for family friendly public swimming.

3. Rec Centres and Leisure Centres

In addition to swimming, many of the Rec and Leisure Centres also have other activities included with your admission like climbing walls and gymnasiums where you can play things like badminton and basketball.

4. Fort Calgary

Fort Calgary is a beautiful small museum about Calgary’s early history. They have really made an effort to make the museum appeal to kids as well as adults.

5. Aerospace Museum

With many full-sized aircraft on display, Calgary’s Aerospace Museum is a great place for airplane fans. Family admission to the Aerospace Museum is $25.

6. Treehouse Indoor Playground

Calgary’s newest indoor playground will be sure to entertain. It has lots of options for school aged kids including a huge climber, arcade room, wiggle car race track, bouncy castle, backyard blaster, x-box zone, climbing wall and interactive mats.

7. Geocaching

Grab your smart phone, download geocaching.com’s app and go on a treasure hunt. Explore the city in a different way using GPS to find caches that other people have hidden throughout the city. Great places to try out geocaching in Calgary include: Nose Hill, Edworthy Park, North Glenmore Park, Fish Creek Park, Confederation Park, and Bowness Park, Tuscany Ravine and 12 Mile Coulee.

8. The Calgary Zoo

The Calgary Zoo is a great place to go whether March is warm or feels a lot more like Winter. When it’s cool out, it’s way less crowded and there’s still a lot to see. It also has quite of lot of indoor exhibits so you don’t have to stay out in the cold the whole time. This is a great place for kids of all ages and adults alike.

9. Tommy K Play North and Tommy K Play South

Tommy K Play  has two locations, both of which have a lot to offer for kids of all ages. The climbing structures are the largest in the city with with slides, tunnels and bumpers and are even perfect for grown-ups. The South location also has a gaming tower, laser maze and roller race track. The Beacon Hill location also has the roller race track, as well as a fun button game called time-freak and trampoline basketball as well. For an additional cost kids and adults can play laser tag and go up the climbing wall.

10. Glenbow Museum

The Glenbow might not be the first place you think of taking the kids, but they have really put in an effort to make their exhibits engaging to kids as well as adults. My top pick is the Mavericks exhibit which is full of dynamic exhibits and hands on experiences. You’ll also want to check out the Discovery Room which has activities designed just for kids.
