- This centre gives visitors a hands-on look at early Calgary life. Fort Calgary lies on 40 acres of riverside park. The interpretive centre reconstructs the original 1875 fort, a facility Mounties built after being dispatched from the settled East to establish law and order among pioneers, and to stop the culturally devastating whiskey trade. Visitors can grab a bite of chow, or indeed a shot of whiskey, at the on-site restaurant.
