Calgary Map

First look at Calgary. We can see the large green areas all over the city as well as both the Bow River and the Elbow River passing through. Calgary has got a population of almost 1.1 million people and a city area of 825 km². It is geographically divided into four major parts: Northwest (NW), Northeast (NE), Southwest (SW) and Southeast (SE), where Centre Street splits it in the middle vertically and the Bow River divides horizontally a portion of it into North and South. In the centre, we find Prince’s Island Park (a great park to enjoy the outdoors), Eau Claire and, below, Downtown Calgary.
Primeira vista de Calgary. Podemos notar as vastas áreas verdes espalhadas pela cidade, assim como os rios (Bow River e Elbow River) cortando a cidade. Calgary tem uma população de quase 1.1 milhão de habitantes e uma área urbana com cerca de 825 km². Ela é geograficamente dividida em quatro áreas principais: Noroeste (NW, em Inglês), Nordeste (NE), Sudoeste (SW) e Sudeste (SE). A Centre Street é a rua responsável pela divisão vertical, ao passo que o Bow River separa horizontalmente a parte Norte da parte Sul. No centro, encontramos o Prince’s Island Park (um belo parque para aproveitar o dia), Eau Claire e, logo abaixo, o centro da cidade.
