The Walterdale Bridge
Give the gram some Paris vibes with these Louvre-esque pyramids. Inside lies different biomes to be discovered, and outside you'll find great geometric eye-candy. Note: the Muttart will be closing for renovations July 2019, and is scheduled to reopen in 2021 (but you can still snap a pic of the exterior!).
