Good place for a walk

Very large park within the city offering the chance to walk through some green space and get away from the city. Good pathway system lets you wonder for as long as you like.

This a great park to natural grasslands in the city. The view and the expanse make walks great. Need to be careful with the dog, lots of burrs.

Nose Hill Park, one of the largest inner city parks in North America. A great day out for families and lover. A picnic basket during the summer, or a sled, in the winter. Always, cheap fun, and fresh air. Most activities, in Calgary, costs money. This one is free, with lots of parking at several street level entrances. Have fun,... More

Calgarians love this park. A hunk of the prairie with great views of the mountains, the city and the airport. Go for the prairie crocus in profusion in the spring on the east facing slopes, the tapestry of wild flowers in the summer, and explore the stands of aspens / poplars where you can run into deer and coyotes. off...

Nose Hill Park is a place to feel free. You get to run and explore and be wild and free, all with an amazing view of the city. This is a great place to go and let loose. But, you basically need to drive there, as it is a bit out of the way.

This is a great, big park to walk, run or cycle in with paved and gravel pathways. It is a place that will remove you from the city even when you are still surrounded by Calgary. Great for a relaxing stroll.

We all had a great time enjoying the challenge of walking & running up the steep hill from the parking lot. Once at the top great views of the ravine & Calgary city and an enjoyable walk on paths through trees & bushes. Great spot of nature in the city! All ages can enjoy this area. And if hiking is...

We went for a two hour hike with friends in this park. It was a clear winter day and we had a great panoramic view of Calgary and out to the mountains. The sun shining off of the snow and frost on the trees and grasses was spectacular.

My wife and I went for a stroll on the hill the Sunday after Christmas, enjoying the mild temperature and the fresh, clean snow. It is amazing that at times, you can forget that you are in a big city. We enjoyed seeing so many people and their dogs also experiencing the joys of winter. We have walked here in... More

I love the place because this is the nearest to Downtown Calgary where me and my family went to watch the Aurora Borealis or Northern lights for the first time. You can climb the hill and relax at the top of it. There are bench available so you can relax while feeling the breeze..
