If you are downtown this is a nice diversion from shopping, great little park with places to sit or picnic. Seemed to be a cross section of business people walking through and homeless hanging out.

so great to wander out from the hotel and stroll in the park! the lighting by the restaurant and along that path going West could have been better at dusk but I was with a friend and felt safe.

In the centre of Calgary is a large playground with something for everyone. Beautiful gardens, sculptures, live entertainment, food stands and bistros. Walk or cycle through this treed oasis.

One of my favourite places in Calgary. Great park downtown, easily accessible and next to the river. Good restaurants nearby (specially River Café, inside the park). Don't forget to see the Peace Bridge.

This is one of my favourite places in Calgary. the woods smell fresh and on some summer evening the park is alive with one festival or another. but my all time favourite time is in the morning for a jog, with just the geese and the goslings.

Great place to for a drink or a leisurely walk. It's about 1.3 km to walk all the walk around the island. Bugs are sometimes an issue, but we'll worth the walk.

I love Prince's Island Park. It is a lovely place for an evening stroll or bike ride. And a great place to people watch, if that's your thing. There are tall trees, the river is right there, and there is also a delicious little restaurant. And they hold many festivals and other events through out the year. Check it out!
