If one is into walking and walking up hill this is the walk. The starter trails are on the side of the hill and your journey to the top of hill is a bit hard. However, at the top the view of the city is magnifcient. Lots of trails that take you around the hill and in some bushes and... More

The trails are everywhere and the wildlife is protected under law. Just a nice Sunday stroll is perfect. You can enter the park bay paths on all 4 sides of the hill. You want fresh air this is where to be. Excellent

I am very fortunate that I live quite close to Nose Hill Park. It is a beautiful stretch of green wilderness with hills and trails in abundance for people who like to walk, run or walk their dogs and to enjoy the beautiful scenery and the wonderful wild crocuses that pop up all over in the spring. If you are... More

Parked at John Laurie & Brisebois and walked along the paved trail with a BOB stroller. Quite a hill - great for getting your heart rate up without over doing it

As I was traveling through the Calgary area, I stumbled on this park while finding a nearby area with some nice outdoor space and views of the area - I definitely found it. The park was easier to find than I expected and parking/bathroom facilities were great. The pathways were wide and easy to follow in any direction you wish... More

Living in a city, there isn't much nature to escape too, but this is a huge park with loads of biodiversity and my dogs love it there. Be weary of some pet owners who don't have control of their dogs, but otherwise, it is a great place to explore and feel apart of something more. My favourite off leash destination... More

Nose hill park is a haven in the middle of Calgary. The perfect place to scape and have a walk to reenergise for your work days! Easy access, plenty of walk trails and an astonishing view of Calgary. I recommend about 3 hours to have a relaxing walk where you can take pictures, have a sit and enjoy some food,... More

Our dog and traveling partner Martin loves this place and we do too! He was in South Carolina for a year, away from this park, drove by it when we were back in Calgary and he started screaming when he saw the entrance!! Of course we took him back! Great walking trails!
