One of my favourite things to do in the summer is to take walks in Fish Creek Park. There is a really cute coffee shop in the park called Annie's that is only open during the spring and summer. It's housed in the foreman's quarters of the old Bow Valley Ranche from the late 1800's. The Cafe was named Annie's after the first foreman of the Bow Valley Ranche. My mom sister and I went for lunch there last week.
"The Bow Valley Ranche is a spectacular historical site nestled in a serene meadow 17 minutes from downtown Calgary in Fish Creek Provincial Park. Towering pines highlight The Ranche House, Native Gardens and the Foreman's House in a truly exceptional setting.The Ranche House was restored and opened as a fine dining restaurant in 2000. The Bow Valley Ranche restoration brings together recreational space, interpretive walks, entertainment areas and education stewardship opportunities for students, the community and general public, honoring our heritage and culture."
