CIES Feild Trip - The Devonian Gardens

The Calgary Immigrant Education Society wants all learners who pass through their doors to have an educational experience that is as a well rounded as possible. That is why field trips are an important dimension to the Society's learning process. Our field trips expose newcomers from everything to Canadian history to practical shopping habits to simply great places to spend time in our great city and are a regular part of the C.I.E.S. experience.

Devonian Gardens is a large indoor park and botanical garden located in the downtown core of Calgary. The park recently re-opened after a major $37-million renovation.
Located on the Stephen Avenue pedestrian mall (8 Avenue SW) between 2 Street SW and 3 Street SW, the park is completely enclosed with glass and covers 2.5 acres (one full city block) on the top floor of The Core Shopping Centre (formerly TD Square). It is maintained by The City of Calgary Parks.

The gardens include a living wall, koi ponds, fountains, a children's play area, and over 550 trees, as well as meeting/function space for special events. A full service restaurant is also planned.

On Thursday evening (May 28th) the CLB3 evening class joined up with the CLB6 class for a downtown field trip to the Devonian Gardens.Many of the students from both classes knew each other. For more pictures of their visit CLICK HERE. 

So... where should our next CIES field trip be? Any suggestions?
