Discover the mission of the Chevron Learning Pathway and the Ripple. Learn about Calgary’s impressive history as you pass by the Mewata Armouries, Prince’s Island Park, Fort Calgary, the Inglewood Bridge, and two famous houses reputed to be haunted. Discover the Avatamsaka Monastery, the Peace Bridge, the Chinese Cultural Centre, and Sien Lok Park.
