A southern Calgary gem

FC Park is just a great place for families, biking, hiking, wildlife encounters and getting out. That is it nestled in the middle of south Calgary makes it all the more unique.

Lots of great paths for walking & biking. One criticism is that there aren't enough garbage cans along the paths.

The deep wooded area, full of wild life and in the middle of a city of a million people. Couldn't be a more beautiful walk, bird watching and wild life of all kinds..or dog loves it there and when you want out of the city, this is the place to visit or picnic. They have outdoor fire pits to cook... More

Many trails for biking, walking, hiking. Lots to see and if you are lucky you'll spot a deer or maybe a cougar. If you take a picnic you can enjoy lunch at a picnic table by the river, just make sure you take your litter with you and keep it natural.

This is my family's favorite place to go for a quick getaway in nature. Lots of deer, birds, and other woodland/grassland creatures. The visitors centre has some great displays and if it's a hot day, Annie's is the perfect place to stop for an ice cream and a rest.

Been there many times, alone and with the family. So beautiful. And, what a place to teach the kids about the beauties of nature!

I frequently walk my dogs here in the summer and always enjoy it. It had a great layout and there is the option to take longer or shorter routes. It is always very clean and well preserved. The recent flood did do substantial damage to the park and has changed the river bed drastically. However it is still walkable and... More

We visited three parts of Fish Creek Park in December to bird watch. The boat launch at the end of Bow Bottom Trail, Bebo Grove and Volter's Flats. I definitely want to check out all three places again in the summer. At every stop we saw people walking and cycling.

I have been going to Fish Creek Park forever, at least 20 years. The best thing about this locale is that it never changes, and you know what to expect. The pathways are serene, even when you encounter other park-goers. Sikome Lake beach is a hot spot for locals; swimming, playing Frisbee/Volleyball, or just soaking up some summer sun! The... More
