Wishing everyone a Healthy and Happy May long 2021!There are still some awesome things to do this May long weekend, but we will have to do them safely and in accordance with Alberta’s Health Orders. We’ve put together our Top 4 things to do this weekend that include a reserved trip to Zoo Nights, a visit at the Heritage Park Opening, a reserved fire-pit picnic, or a wonderful walk in the beautiful outdoors around Calgary.
What is Open Closed in Calgary
Due to COVID-19, many attractions are closed, all indoor social gatherings – public and private – are prohibited and outdoor gatherings are limited to five people.
1. Heritage Park Opening Weekend
Exciting outdoor-only experience awaiting you beginning May long weekend, including the brand new Prospect Ridge area – an exciting new addition that will take visitors on a journey through Western Canada’s energy past. The S.S. Moyie is back in the water and ready to welcome you starting May 22! All programming will be moved outdoors in and around the historical exhibits.
May 22 to 24, 2021 | 10:00 AM to 05:00 PM
Heritage Park, 1900 Heritage Dr SW, Calgary, AB, Canada
$12.95 to $24.95
ZooNights is a regular day at the zoo – with extended hours – so you can enjoy your favourite animals and the outdoor zoo grounds a little longer. While there is no extra charge for ZooNights (daily admission rates apply), you may find some special entertainment around the park during the evening and there will be adult beverages and special concessions items available for purchase. You can think of it as the 3 B’s – booze, bento boxes and buskers!
May 21 & 22, 2021 | Extended hours from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m
Open daily and Open on Victoria Day | 10:00 AM to 05:00 PM
Calgary Zoo, 210 St. George’s Drive NE
3. Outdoor Fire Pits
Enjoy a picnic at the outdoor picnic areas. The city of Calgary introduced reservable fire pits in various parks last fall so that Calgarians can reserve them for a safe outdoor gathering with their bubble. The city has reopened the pilot program once again for this spring and summer.
May 14 to October 11
4. Go for a walk
Spring has sprung. It’s time to go out and enjoy the great outdoors. And lucky for us, Calgary has a lot to offer in that department. Check out one of these 25 Nature Attractions and Parks in and around Calgary. There are hiking and biking trails, picnic spots, off-leash dog parks, birding areas, and much more.
