Get lost in a corn maze
What: There is no better way to welcome fall then heading out to one of Calgary’s many corn mazes and enjoying a fun-filled farm adventure. You can’t miss the “Outback Adventure” design at Cobbs Adventure park, along with the Kangaroo Petting Zoo, tractor rides, ropes course, and more.
What: After five long years following the 2013 flood, Kananaskis Country Golf Course has officially re-opened and back to a full 36-hole facility. Their first season is well underway, and there is merely a month left to check out this world-class course. Play a round on either Mt. Lorette or Mt. Kidd, or simply check out the view from their patio after a day of adventuring in K-Country. The views certainly won’t disappoint!
Where: #1 Lorette Drive, Kananaskis Alberta
What: Take a break from the heat and have an ice-cold bevy on one of Calgary’s best patios. From rooftops to hidden gardens, there are plenty of spots to choose from that will have the vibe and ambience you’re looking for. Check out some of Calgary’s best rooftop patios here.
What: Grab your weekly haul of delicious produce, eggs, baked goods, meats, preserves, florals, and more, all grown and produced on farms right here in Alberta. You can enjoy live entertainment and other fun activities happening at this quaint community farmers’ market. The market will go on rain or shine, so come prepared.
