Heritage Heaven


After three years living and working in the Calgary area, I finally discovered Heritage Village Park in the city’s south end. I jumped in with both feet and took an annual pass to avoid having to pay parking and lining up every time I want to visit. I am so glad I did. This is a sketcher’s dream. Classic old houses and business from years past, old style costumes and vehicles all over town, and this train that runs a circuit all day, affording the opportunity to jump bac\k and forth on this 100+ acre treasure of a site.

The train doesn’t spend too long sitting still, but that’s alright. If you don’t finish your sketch, grab a coffee and’ relax in the shade. You can pick it up when it returns to exactly the same spot in 35 minutes.
