Calaway Park is one of Calgary’s most popular family attractions. A basic single day admission ticket grants access to all the park’s rides, attractions, and live shows, though games tickets must be purchased separately. Families of four (or more) can opt for a discounted family pass. Visitors over the age of 50 enjoy a discount, and children under two get in free.
