End of Steel Park

The CPR was the first railway that linked east and west. It was completed in 1885 and passed through Calgary and on to Vancouver.

Meanwhile, the CNR, a second more northerly line, connected Edmonton and Prince Rupert.

A short spur also connected Edmonton and Calgary, This park in Old Strathcona, on Edmonton's south side, commemorates that old connection between Alberta's two largest cities.
