Located 191 metres above the downtown core, the Calgary Tower offers the best view in the city and is a must-see on any visitor's itinerary. On the Observation Deck you'll experience a spectacular 360° view of the bustling city, the majestic Rocky Mountains, the foothills, and the prairies.
Originally named the Husky Tower, the Calgary Tower was constructed as a joint venture between Marathon Realty and Husky Oil to honour Canada’s centennial and promote the downtown core as a part of a Calgary urban renewal program. Today the Tower is a major tourist destination and popular dining spot. Though it is has been eclipsed in size, the Tower is still a proud city icon.
2018 marks the fiftieth year of the Calgary Tower defining the city's skyline. Celebrate with us as we take a look at the icon over the years.
