"FORT CALGARY" Fort Calgary Historic Park Tip by mtncorg
Fort Calgary Historic Park, Calgary: 8 reviews and 22 photos
Established as a way post between Fort MacLeod and Canadian points east, by Colonel James MacLeod, at the confluence of the Elbow and Bow Rivers, this NorthWest Monted Police fort served as the beginning point for what Calgary is today. Open parkland on the west side of the fort, serves to isolate the fort from the modern city beyond lending a bit more perspective as to the history of Calgary, its founding father, james MacLeod, and the NWMP - which has evolved into today's Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
