There was an educator guide who provided many informative facts about Alberta trout. Children would love seeing the tanks of fish and the water conservation on the top floor. more »
I’ve worked 5 minutes away from here for 7 years and didn’t even know about this awesome family attraction! My kids wanted to learn how to fish so we checked it out. A beautiful park and a great learning centre with beautiful aquariums in the basement. The staff were so nice and helpful as well. Go check it out you won’t be disappointed!
Located in downtown just off of 17th, it was our first time at the Bow Habitat Station. We took our kids here on the based on the family friendly reviews. It definitely did not disappoint, a hidden gem in Calgary. There is an aquarium of fresh water fish found in Alberta in the basement and the exhibition on the main floor. In the exhibition area, you learn everything from water conservation to sustainable fishing and fishing habitats in Alberta. What we noticed was, how clean and well maintain the Bow Habitat Station was, it looked brand new. Our kids absolutely enjoyed it despite the hatchery being closed for the renovations. We can't wait to come back when the snow finally melts because the have a fishing pond in front for the kids. Definitely worth the visit when you are looking for something to do with the family.
