Our summer Scavenger Hunt!

Discover Calgary’s hidden sandstone relics.

Whether done by foot, bike, skateboard or car, this is a fun expedition through our city.
Start by picking up your free Scavenger Hunt map at Lougheed House (or download it and print it by clicking here: Sandstone Scavenger Hunt map.  With it you will discover a dozen of Calgary’s early sandstone architectural sites where you will uncover the unique clues hidden in plain sight, and then you can scan our map's QR codes to get the full history of each location.
When you finish the tour, return the completed map to Lougheed House and you’ll be entered to win a prize pack of coupons and merchandise from local businesses.
This all-ages tour can be done alone or with friends or family, and at any time until September 5th.

Summertime Family Backpack Program

Beginning July 18 we have family backpacks filled with everything that you and your family need to explore our Gardens and grounds in a fun, interactive way.

Each backpack has fun items like binoculars, butterfly nets, watering cans, sidewalk chalk, magnifying glasses, marbles and more, plus an activity guide on how to use each of the tools on the grounds of Lougheed House. A family can easily occupy themselves for 3 - 4 hours with this kit. And, you have access to the Lougheed House washrooms, when it's time for a bio break.

Backpacks are available during Lougheed House business hours (Wednesday - Friday from 11 - 4, and Saturday - Sunday from 10 - 4).
