This is a great natural park within city limits. There are off leash areas to walk your dog. Be forewarned though that many a dog have been sprayed by porcupines and end up taking a trip to the vet to get the quills out. I take my dog there but have never had an issue. I suggest staying out of... More

...but it's unfair to rate it poorly off of that, since it is a lovely place to wander if you're looking to get some fresh air or just have some time to waste. Just make sure you're not nervous around dogs, since most owners usually let their dogs run around wild.

Walk, Walk the dog, jog, cycle. Kilometers of pathways to suite everyone's outdoor and fitness requirements and levels. There is plenty of fresh air and a few good climbs.

must like dogs if you go to this park (which I do, and I take my well-behaved dog there regularly). But I get pretty annoyed with the people who are uncomfortable with off leash dogs who frequent the park.

If you want the Alberta version of what prairie writer, W.O. Mitchell was talking about when he asked, "Who has seen the wind?" give beautiful Nose Hill Park a try. With unsurpassed views of the Rockies to the west and cityscapes in the distance, the rolling, untamed hills are a perfect tonic to the congestion and noise of urban life.... More

I live close to nose hill park and use it a few a times a week to mountain bike. The trails and pathways go on forever and its a great place for a jog, bike ride, or hike.

I dislike the fact threres not enough trees and water. I don't like going in the summer, theres no where to really cool off that someone isn't using, or that dosnt have grass that's too long I like the view of Calgary, and the general size. During stampede you can see 3/5 sets of fireworks from the same point.

Nose hill park is huge! An awesome place to take your dog for an off lease walk. The view of the city is top notch and the trails are well marked out. There is a lot to appreciate in natural beauty at nose hill park. The rolling hills, the big open sky random patched of lupins through out the fields... More

I live facing Nose Hill and after 4 months I decided to go up and see how it feels. What a lovely place to rest and contemplate nature! Pure air and lovely view of the mountains and downtown. Nose hill is definitely a must go in Calgary if you love nature!

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.
