Getting in the car early in the morning and surprising the kids with a road trip, destination unknown, is one of the most exciting parts of the summer. When you pull up to the destination and it’s somewhere that they instantly recognize, that we’ve driven by for their entire life without actually trying it, like Calaway Park is even more exciting.
Located just outside of Calgary, it’s the perfect way to top off a weekend spent in the mountains, or discovering everything there is to do in Calgary. You can camp and play at the park, plan a playcation in your own backyard or discover it on a road trip where you wake up early and take off to the fun destination. It’s even the perfect way to top off the drive back to Edmonton, and ensure naps for the rest of the trip, after you’ve spent the weekend in the mountains.
Calaway Park features rides like Balloon Ascension, Berry go Round and Bumper Boats and is a great choice for families because the admission price covers the rides in the park. With rides for kids, adults and everywhere in between, and five choices for eating throughout the park, you can easily plan your day out with the kids.
My tip: head there on a weekday to avoid the weekend rush and bring your own snacks and picnic lunch if you want to create a budget friendly family road trip for the family.
Four reasons you should plan a visit to Calaway Park –
– It’s a great road trip destination, three hours and you’re there.
– You can bring your own snacks to the park and make it a budget friendly day
– To try the revamped Log ride, our favorite!
– It’s a great stop for a trip to the mountains, and you’ll get a silent car trip after you spend a few hours in the park
