This elm tree in the Victoria Park area of Calgary is also known colloquially as the Stampede Elm. Although designated as a heritage resource, no one is sure how old the tree actually is although it has preexisted all of the Calgary Stampedes and is at least 120 years. Planted on the north side of the Stampede Grounds close to the location of the first major hospital in Calgary, this tree has persisted throughout the development and growth of the City of Calgary to become a character defining element of Victoria Park.
