We spent a weekend in Calgary and went to Prince's Island to the River Café for dinner. This was one of 8 taxi journeys we took in Calgary, and in every case, the driver was beyond useless. We are out of towners, so please don't ask me for directions. You have a GPS, even though it is clear you don't... More

Our hotel was in easy walking distance. This is a beautiful spot to just relax. The Island Park is located on the Bow River. It is connected by a walking bridge to downtown Calgary. It has a walking trail that covers the circumference with numerous benches for sitting. There is also a lovely restaurant on the island, but we did... More

The park is in the middle of the city and easy to get to. The parking might be an issue though. It is good for walking. It is close to the market and other shops.

It is a nice park suitable for different status of people, I mean for single people good to sit on river & do some reflection, for couples to have a nice walk on the bridges & around the small lake & family for the nice green spaces they have for kids to play. We weekly go there to unwind &... More

From walking the paved pathways or jogging if you prefer, huge grassy fields to play sports or just lay around and read a book, a kids splash/waterpark, another very large play park. You can go down by the river and splash around or throw rocks, there are safe... More

This is a nice spot to take a bike ride or go for a picnic in Calgary. You'll get a taste of downtown mixed with green grass and open spaces
