The Stampede City has plenty to do and see, but for those just looking to ‘hang out,’ it just got better! Stretch your arms and hydrate, because a brand new bouldering park has opened in Calgary and it’s FREE for anyone to enjoy!

Located in Millenium Park, Calgary’s new outdoor urban bouldering park is the first of its kind in Western Canada and features 3 natural rocks that range from 3.6m to 4.25m in height and are great for climbers of all skill levels.

With 60 established problems or climbing routes set by a team that includes some of Canada’s top climbers,, the city hopes that this park will continue to get people out and about, and will make the sport easier to enjoy for those interested.

“We continuously look for ways to make our parks attractive and accessible to all, and the location of these new boulders will allow the growing community of climbers to practice their skills in a beautiful outdoor setting without needing to drive outside of the city,” said Project Manager Britney Woods.

“We see great value in upgrading our park features, and we’re very excited about this new amenity within one of our most central parks.”

the only catch? Climbers will have to bring their own crash pads, helmets and climbing shoes. Also, for your own well-being and the safety of others, please read all safety advisories and rules before entering the park.

This park sounds fun – but not worth risking a limb, a life or even a headache. Be smart and enjoy!

In Calgary, there’s nothing else quite like it.
