What is there NOT to like about Nose Hill? First, it is HUGE. Walking or cycling, there is a large space to do it. Next, DOGS and there are always a lot of them too. With a super awesome view of Calgary's downtown I don't know who wouldn't enjoy it. Calgary is lucky to have green space like this.

Excellent place to get out on some trails without having to drive out of the city. Perfect for trail running and getting some work on hills

This park is so accessible and great for an off leach dog walk on the Shaganappi trail side. The only warning is there is a coyote population that lives here and there is always signs up for missing small dogs. If you have a small do keep him close. My dog is 50lbs and we have never had an issue.

This huge park is riddled with pathways that take you all over these prairie grasslands. You can walk for hours. Best place ever to take the dog off-leash -- although watch out for the porcupines and remember always to pick up poo, keep the dog under control and only take off the leash in the designated areas. Some spectacular viewpoints... More

This is a fantastic park with great hiking trails and fabulous views of downtown and the mountains. Lots of off-leash area for my dog to run and at this time of year, it is exciting to see the signs of spring like the first prairie crocuses and bursting buds on the trees and bushes. Go take a hike!

This place makes for a nice walk, especially if you are looking for an off-leash park for your dog (although we hardly saw any dogs--so if you don't like dogs, it's possible to avoid them). We saw several deer and the park is huge! Being largely grasslands you feel the wind on a windy day, and with little tree cover... More

Love it ! My favourite spot is from the parking off 14 st NW, with the most outstanding view of downtown. On-leash and off-leash areas are very generous and well marked. Lots of trail options to follow depending how big of a walk you're looking for. Beware of wildlife in the park, coyotes, deers, porcupines are seen on a daily... More

I love how open Nose hill is. Once at the top you can see pretty much all Calgary and believe me Calgary isn't that big. But nose hill is pretty awesome. Easy walk but good

I have been a regular visitor to Nose hill since I was a child with my first dog. I love to record the first crocus, and the glorious fragrance of wolf willow in bloom. Sadly many parts of the park are being "improved" with manmade trails which ultimately decreases the native vegetation as the disturbance of the soil by machinery... More

This is a large urban park, which even has coyotes, deer and other wildlife in residence for most of the year. A great place to go for long walks, even with your dog and there are biking trails also. I love it for the spectacular sunrises and sunsets that sometimes occur.
