About this Walk
Nestled between the Elbow River to West, Lindsay Park to the North, Macleod Trail to East and Mission Road to the South, Erlton is an often overlooked inner city oasis. Over 100 years old, this community is home to the lovely Lindsay Park, the bustling Talisman Centre, a convent, cemeteries, “Forrest Park”, present and future condo developments, and hundreds of feral domesticated bunnies, not to mention resilient Calgarians who were caught in the epicentre of the 2013 Flood. Erlton has a rich past, present, and future which members of the community are eager to share with you!
Warning: some steep uphill walking along Erlton Street.
How to find us:
We’ll be waiting at North Entrance (the one facing toward the Calgary Tower) of the Talisman Centre.
Taking Public Transit
Get off either Stampede or Erlton Station on the North-South LRT or take the #10 bus along Macleod Trail.
