Project Description

1997

Calgary’s history is alive and kicking, thanks in no small part to Alida Visbach. As President and CEO of Heritage Park, Alida has overseen major renewal and revitalization of Canada’s largest living history museum, doubling the size of the park and doubling attendance. The New Brunswick transplant arrived in 2005 and immediately dove into the community, spearheading a $65-million fundraising campaign and adding exhibits, including the park’s newest attraction, the Famous Five Centre of Canadian Women.
