Upcoming Events

 

There has been a lot of activity at the SHC this winter, and we are so grateful to have this facility available to the community.


Recap and Reminders: Anne Seeley wrote, the Nov 11 Remembrance Day service at the Heritage Center was well attended. The choir paid tribute with a song rendition of In Flanders Field, Robert, a veteran, dressed in full uniform laid a commemorative wreath and old war letters were read. The very somber ceremony was followed with more memories while enjoying tea and muffins.


The Gingerbread Tea: Big thanks to all who came out to socialize and to those who organized, baked gingerbread, donated baking and your time and handmade items. This is very much
appreciated. These events are only successful with the continued support from the community.

Calaway Park History

calaway

Calaway Park is Western Canada’s Largest Outdoor Family Amusement Park. It is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains surrounded by the community of Springbank. The park opened its doors in 1982 and has grown from a small amusement park to one of Calgary and Western Canada’s top tourism destinations. A quick fun fact: the name Calaway Park comes from Calgary away. Calaway Park is your family’s Playcation Destination where “Your Smile is Our Mission”. Calaway’s entertainment program offers a wide variety of live entertainment, street performances, and original stage shows. Original stage productions produced in-house each year, with a dance troop known as Calaway Live, where 30 young entertainers can practice their craft and get paid to boot! In 2013 Calaway Park added a new 3D theatre to our Entertainment line-up. Playing short animated films it is a new adventure for the whole family.


In 2014 Calaway Park opened our new log ride, Timber Falls. Take a journey through three interactive themed buildings that will transport you to the Timber Falls Sawmill. Feel the rush of three high velocity drops and a zig-zag river section! Non-riders can even join in the action from the Timber Falls viewing area with two explosive water cannons. Timber Fall is sponsored by local family business Spray Lake Sawmill located in Cochrane.


In 2017, Calaway Park, a proud Canadian company, celebrated Canada 150 all season long including producing the live stage show One Five Oh Canada. Two new family fun
experiences were add as well that year, Dizzy Dragons and Dragon Drop. Joining the Calaway Park experience in 2018 is Sky Wynder! It is a new ride you don’t want to miss! Experience two thrills in one. You will spiral as you drop down a 40 foot column again and again. Take in the breath-taking view of the beautiful Rocky Mountains from this brand new ride. With 32 rides, Calaway Park has a ride experience for every kid and the kids at heart.


Calaway Park is home to the Calaway RV Park and Campground. Guests can sleep under the stars after their day of excitement.


At Calaway Park, it’s all about family fun!
