You really need to allow just the names of what you're asking for, so I will list all type ins you should accept: Stoney, Somerset, Bridlewood, Deerfoot, Glenmore, Elbow, Flames, Stampeders, Stamps, Roughnecks, Nose Hill, U of C. Furthermore the largest park in Calgary is Fish Creek Provincial Park (Just allow "Fish Creek") and should therefore be replaced. However, if you choose to keep Nose Hill, you will have to change the clue to "Largest Municipal Park" as it is the largest municipal park as Fish Creek is a provincial park.

Typing in "Calgary" for the sports teams is unnecessary, it's already been established that they're the Calgary teams. Adding the word trail in for the major roads is also unnecessary, because they are all known by their actual names. "River" and "park" are also already established in their context.

And how is Banff lesser known? I genuinely cannot think of which national park is better known than Banff?

You should add a description to "Nation to the West". Call it First Nation or Indigenous nation or reserve or something. Confusing. I thought it meant like country. Also accept Macleod, Deerfoot, etc

Yeah, because if you keep going west the nearest country would be japan or china!
