Spend time with friends, enjoy good food, and watch your kids laughing and playing … the best things in life are at Granary Road this summer! Granary Road is your destination for weekend market shopping, racing your kids up a spider web, and connecting with your teens on the Yesteryear Mini Golf Course. It’s the place to get nuzzled by a goat, get veggies to plant in your garden, and meet with friends for great local food.
Granary Road was developed with the vision of bringing family and friends together over good food and fun. Located just south of Calgary in the foothills, it makes a lovely day trip for the whole family and it’s just the right place to create some memories this summer.
The market at Granary Road is open from Friday to Sunday, with a mix of top vendors selling everyday staples and unique offerings. It’s a highly enjoyable shopping experience, as the warm wood interior with vaulted ceilings welcomes families and friends into a delightful marketplace surrounded by wonderful views. The carefully-curated vendors offer great products at fair prices and they know a warm smile will make you feel at home.
Granary Road Garden Centre is the newest addition to the property and is quickly becoming a favourite destination for the gardener of every level and interest. Planning on growing your own veggies? Stop by and shop for all kinds of ready-to-plant vegetables and herbs.
Of course, the kids might not be as interested in how their salad is grown, but they will love the goats, the alpacas and the other animals that live on the farm! They will definitely want to check out the Tractor Track, where they can race mini John Deere Tractors.
Let’s play! There is so much to do at the Active Learning Park, for kids of all ages! You’ll identify with small animals and insects as you climb into the 4-story life-sized ant farm, take a twisty corkscrew slide into a juicy-looking apple, climb a 16-foot spider web, burn off some energy on in-ground lily pad trampolines, and enjoy lots more critter-centric outdoorsy fun. This 36-acre park is filled with 11 themed exhibits and interactive experiences for future scientists, agriculturalists, and anyone who likes to play.
Take a trip back in time to the early days of Alberta’s history with the Yesteryear Mini Golf Course! This Par 72, 18-hole course is suitable for all ages and skill levels and is fun for the whole family. No tee times are needed.
What do you need this summer? A day to play, connect, and enjoy life at Granary Road! Gather your family and friends and embrace what makes it all worthwhile — appreciating the good things of life, together.
