Discover the History of Western Canada with Heritage Park & Driftscape
Visitors to Calgary’s Heritage Park now have a new tool at their fingertips, as they explore over 100 years of history through storytelling and activities at one of Calgary’s top tourist attractions.
Beginning today, in partnership with Driftscape - Canada’s leading travel discovery app - Heritage Park visitors can navigate their way through 127 acres of the park using the Driftscape App, discovering hidden gems and unique stories about Western Canadian history.
“With such a large footprint, sometimes it can be hard for Heritage Park’s guests to see everything they want to see,” says Jeff Hodgson, Senior Director of Guest Services at Heritage Park. “The Driftscape app will be beneficial in helping our guests to move more easily around the park, and learn about history in a new way through modern technology.”
Whether panning for gold at Prospect Ridge, or shopping for unique treasures at the Botsford Harness Shop, Heritage Park is the place to explore, discover and experience over a century of Canadian history.
In addition to Heritage Park, Driftscape hosts content developed in collaboration with over 50 local partners across Canada. This content provides users with a rich experience at their fingertips as they search for events, tours and points of interest in arts, history, culture and a host of other topics. Driftscape has enjoyed an impressive expansion during the pandemic as users sought outdoor experiences. Already offering audio tours and other immersive content coast to coast in Canada, the company has recently expanded into the northeast U.S.
