Walking tours of historic neighbourhoods take Calgarians back in time

On an afternoon stroll, residents of the neighbouring communities of Cliff Bungalow and Mission can feel like they've gone back in time. They might encounter structures built in the Queen Anne, Spanish Colonial, Classical and Georgian Revival styles, all from the early 1900s, within only a few blocks.

However, combing through the city's historic neighbourhoods is no longer an activity reserved for area residents, as Heritage Calgary is helping people learn about Calgary's past through self-directed walking tours.

It will also have the first cultural plan for any neighbourhood in Canada – perhaps in North America – that will help inform Chinatown's new local area plan, a plan last updated more than three decades ago.
