One of the place that travellers should visit during their travel to Calgary. 10 minutes away from the City. Very calm, relaxing and natural. I walked the park for hours back and forth. It is so beautiful during the Fall. You can also have some food or beverage enjoying the view of the Park in The River cafe. I'll definitely... More

There are so many cool things as part of the park. You can really lose yourself in the park and forget that you are just a stones throw away from a major road! The river is calming, the park is green and lush, pedestrian bridges are great. Get down to the river and enjoy the quiet. The river cafe, expensive... More

The paths and grounds are very well kept and the playground is awesome! The Eau Claire Express train play set for the younger children, the climbing areas, the huge set of monkey bars, twirly units and the cowboy hat swing sets are all amazing. There's also an area to sit and watch the ducks in the river or to go... More

Our family enjoyed a beautiful stroll around the island. With the Bow river surrounding you, you felt as though you were removed from the down town city feel.

Unfortunately right before we got to Calgary they had an late summer snow. The weight from the snow and rain caused a lot of the trees to break in and around Calgary and the park received a lot of damage. It is a really nice area for walking, biking or roller blading.

The park has many paths to walk, bike, or skate on. There is a water park for kids, many play ground areas, and a lot of green space. You can sit on one of the many benches watching people, the geese, or the river flowing by. At different times throughout the summer there are plays and various events. Looking for... More

Lots of walking/cycling paths among nicely maintained green spaces, great place for a picnic, yoga, street musicians and visual artists. Abundance of colors from variety of plants and hanging baskets. Relaxing and friendly - right in the centre of the city!
