We cycled to Nose Hill Park from our downtown-area AirBnB. It's a nice, fairly gradual climb in a bike lane and on a bike path. The park was disappointing. The views of Calgary were good, but the top of the hill is huge flat plateau of 98% grasslands/meadow. It reminded us of home in Manitoba! There were quite a few... More

It seems like you could walk in this park, forever. Some variety--hills, treed areas, water, and paved walkways. People--on foot and bikes--dogs and nature. Bathrooms monitored by the City of Calgary. Just a wonderful wildness in the heart of the NW.

Nose Hill Park is a large open area in the north west of Calgary. It has many trails, some paved and others just stone or dirt. A great place to walk, run or ride a bike. Dogs can be taken on a leash in all areas and there are also some off leash areas as well. Good car parks and... More

Look South, look East, look West, it's worth it if you move around Nose Hill. As for the park itself, it's large, all the Northern part roughly flat and not of great interest as such. Hot when it's sunny, cold when it's windy. To my taste, it's all about the location and the view.

This is a green park with lots of walking/cycling paths. There are no vendors. Most of the local people use this park to walk their pet. Great place to relax in the heart of the city.

a nice variety and you can move at a very relaxed pace. Lots of places to take a break and have a picnic.

I went here with a friend one Saturday afternoon to take some pictures. It's a great place to go for a walk with some equally great views! Little bit of a trek to get to this place without a car- heads up!

Nose Hill is one of the biggest park inside a city in North America and I am lucky to have is just in the edge of my hood. It is possible to ride your bike, walk your dog, just walk or appreciate the nature. Bonus to have wild animal running free around.

Nose Hill is a wonderful spot! Located right in the city of Calgary, this wilderness is teeming with plant and wild life, yet feels like you are far away from civilization. At some points, you can't even see any built environment at all except the pathways through the park. Great for warm summer evening walks and bike rides.
