Life on the Range
This fountain was built as a tribute to the dedicated volunteers of the Calgary Stampede. It is their tireless work through numerous committees and community spirit that enables us to maintain the many programs of the Stampede including those devoted to youth and to the preservation of our western heritage. These programs are an integral part of the Stampede commitment to the citizens of Calgary and Southern Alberta.
