Description Typed verso: "This privately owned Sanctuary, free to the public, comprises an area of four hundred acres within the City Limits. It may be reached by auto from Ninth Avenue East, beyond the British American Oil Refinery, or by a short walk from the eastern terminal of the Number One street-car line. Inglewood is indeed a unique attraction for Calgary. Birds of many varieties may be found here all year round. This Sanctuary remains open at all times to provide annual refuge for from 3000 to 5000 wild geese and ducks, through the half mile long spring lake where the water never becomes colder than 40 degrees and the mile and a half part of the Bow river flowing through it. During all seasons water fowl, including the occasional swan may be seen feeding on the open river in the residential part of the City. The ponds of Inglewood have also made it possible for the Alberta Government to restock many Alberta streams with the thousands of trout reared here.
