We live at the base of this park, so of course it is one of our favourite hang outs. It's a great place to go all year round. Tones of off leash space for your dog, great paths, tones of geocaching and some really beautiful fall colors!

Acres and acres of strolling paths, conscientious dog owners tidy up after their friendly furry friends. It is a natural area, so watch for deer and be alert for coyotes!

This natural area is a great gift given to the city of Calgary. We really felt that the overall planning and preservation in the city was great. Not many large cities have so much natural parkland

You can almost forget you're in the city when you're walking around here, a very nice diversion as a visitor.

What a view! Walking off-leash with my dog. Easy access from the city. Easy hiking. Just started exploring this large area - looking forward to spending many hours in fair weather here.

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.
