Olympic Plaza. The heart of Calgary. Our most cherished gathering place. In the winter, it is a free public skating rink, where anyone is free to lace up and have some fun. In the summer, it is filled with water and a fun place to play. Throughout the year, it is home to a variety of free festivals, from French to Arabic to Latino. It is a place where all the walks of life that inhabit this city come together in unity. Olympic Plaza is the beating heart of Calgary, and we would not have this special place if it weren't for the Olympics. The names on the bricks are the community members would donated their money to build it. The names of our Olympic champions can be found in the NE corner and the Olympic motto, Citius, Altius, Fortius beckons our city to aspire to go Faster, Higher, and Stronger.
#VoteYes today Calgary. The Winter Olympics in 1988 have made this city the amazing place we call home, and 2026 will make us even greater.
