Totally brilliant in greenery and the sounds of nature that embrace you as you make your way through the many paths...I often covet the homes that surround this wonderful place...They must be blessed and peaceful.

Nice to have quick getaway during the day, enjoy onset of spring or biking during the summer. Scenic hiking trails, the lampposts and benches give an old world charming feel.

I was lucky to have found Fish Creek Park almost as soon as I moved to Calgary. It truly is a treasure for the city. It has kilometres of paved and non-paved trails for walking, biking, and hiking. It really is easy to believe you're in a vast wilderness and not in the middle of a huge city. It is... More

The park has lots of trails for bike riding; paved and gravelled for general riding as well as single track in the bush riding for the more serious riders.

Love this place. Great for walking/biking, with paved paths. There is a lake and a creek, tons of wildlife. Don't forget to head to The Ranch in the East end for some History, IceCream at the Bakery as well as the main restaurant located in a huge Heritage House for lunch and dinner. There are even picnic tables with BBQ... More

I am blessed to have this prairie park behind my house. Walking, cycling, fishing, or just sitting, are all ways to enjoy the beauty of nature here. Deer, rabbits, pheasants, gophers, coyotes.... I love it!

Love going to the park for a bike ride, walk and in the winter cross-country skiing. Always see lots of birds and sometimes deer. My only wish was that people would clean up after their dogs and also realize that it is not a off leash park.
