Just because summer is over, doesn't mean you have to stay indoors!

We all know and love the benefits of living in a lake community in the summer – lazy beach days, playing tennis or beach volleyball, boating, kayaking and paddle boarding to name just a few.

Calgary Zoo Penguin WalkBetween January 14 and February 28, Calgarians will have a chance to take a closer look at Arthur, Asa, Ceasar, Diana, Grace, Hera, Solomon, and Tut; the eight king penguins at Calgary Zoo as they get out of their exhibit area to waddle on their loop route every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday between 11:00 and 11:15 am.

"Penguin Walk" is the name of the new interactive attraction that took the popular zoo birds two months of practice, and was mainly inspired by their ability to follow directions and stay together.  The program aims to give them the exercise they need, as they love to eat and tend to gain weight very quickly.  “A king penguin in the wild could be walking 30 kilometres until he gets to the open sea — and that’s the beginning of a fishing
