About this Walk

Join Elbow Park Residents Association’s Heritage Director, Tracey J. Johnson, as she explores the heritage buildings, prominent past residents, and community highlights of one of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhoods. From colourful characters, to streetcars, to the old telephone building, this walk takes you back in time and paints a picture of what life was like in this unique and picturesque community.
