Overall assessment: One of Calgary’s most unique parks, Rundle Ruins Park contains the ruins of Calgary’s first major hospital, originally built in 1895. After much debate portions of the hospital which had been demolished controversially in 1973 was converted into a park in 1974, which is what you can see there today.

This park is popular for photo shoots but not much else. It’s not great for picnics as it doesn’t have much for seating. There’s no playground here either, but Gordie did enjoy climbing on the lower stones and running around the pathways. If you were looking for a different kind of location for photos this would be a great choice.
