The Calgary Tower was built and opened in 1968. At 190 metres (626 feet) in height, this was once the tallest building in Calgary's skyline. The Observation Terrace offers panoramic views of the city, and a glass floor allows visitors to stand 160 metres (525 feet) above the street. Also located at the top of the tower is a gift shop, Tops Bar and Grill and the revolving Panorama Dining Room, open for lunch and dinner. The tower and the observation deck are open daily. The Tourism Calgary Information Centre is located at the base of the Tower.
A special thanks to Roger for providing a picture for those of us who will be arriving at the conference via parachute! Be sure to pack your chute carefully and remember ... the buildings won't have numbers on them like in Roger's picture ! :))
