Sightseeing
Elbow Falls is a favorite picnic spot that fills quickly due to it's close proximately to the city of Calgary. There are several picnic tables located along the Elbow River that can be accessed by a paved trail leading to the Falls. Unfortunately most of the picnic sites we're washed away during the 2013 flood however the falls have not changed. The interpretive trail along the river leads to three steel railed viewing points located next to the falls. During late fall and winter as the flow decreases the falls reach a height of 6ms then to 3ms during spring runoff. Depending on the season the pool located at the bottom of the falls can be crystal clear to mud brown. It takes about 30 minutes to explore the walkways and lookouts. You can continue hiking downstream of the falls for a short distance.”

Head out to the Bar U Ranch and discover what life was like for working cowboys in the Old West.

Visitors to the Bar U Ranch will enjoy a living history experience as costumed interpreters demonstrate ranching skills such as cattle handling, roping, saddle making, blacksmithing and more. The ranch’s visitor centre and 35 historic structures provide a close-up look at Canada’s ranching roots, while the on-site restaurant offers up authentic cowboy grub. Guided walking and wagon tours are available. The Bar U Ranch is located approximately 100 km south of Calgary on Highway 22. Visitor season runs from May 22nd to September 30th.

The Leighton Art Centre, Gallery and Museum has become a well-known art venue showcasing a variety of outstanding exhibitions by Alberta Artists. The predominant focus of art, inspired by the landscape, is the legacy the Leighton Art Centre is built upon. The gallery, with 120 running feet of exhibition space, hosts several exhibits throughout the year, both from professional artists as well as emerging artists. In addition to traditional paintings, we show works of fine craft that are inspired by the landscape, photography, and outdoor installations. The goal of our exhibition program is to expand the possibilities of art that relate to the landscape. As well, the Leighton Art Centre draws upon the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Traveling Exhibition program to augment it's yearly Exhibition Calendar and to provide excellent educational content for our school program. Where possible, all exhibits are linked to our permanent collection, giving us the opportunity to share these treasures with our visitors. Each exhibition is accompanied by a curatorial statement and educational material to engage the viewer. Our focus will continue to be works by Alberta artists, although we may introduce works by artists from the rest of Canada and abroad from time to time. With one-half of our membership comprised of artists, we also offer several opportunities for members to show their work.
