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

What's not to love about fish creek park... Bike and walking paths connect the south to downtown calgary, bow river with all the birds and wildlife, great fly fishing. We live close to fish creek park so our daily walks consist of choosing what area of the park we want to see that day. Great to see the eagles, owls... More

Fish Creek Park is great. We are lucky that we live close by and get to go there often for walks and sometimes a slow scenic bike ride to Sikome Lake and the Bow River. Certain times of the day like early in the morning or twilight you get to see white tailed deer and all kinds of birds. I've... More

Some of the grounds are lovely and the lease free is well kept and cleaned up. The lake as they call it leaves a lot to be desired, It is more like a large swimming pool filled with river ware. Not my idea of going to the beach.

We only walked a small section of this park, but were happy to see an established trail system right in the city

A most amazing little oasis at the edge of a giant city. This huge park stretches over 30 kms and has something for everyone. There is a little lake with a beach on one end, jungle gyms for kids, walking paths, bike paths, picnic areas, a fancy dining restaurant and a casual one, ice caves, a marvelous creek, camp kitchens...

A simple walk in Fish Creek Park is one of the best stress relievers that I know. The park is beautiful, clean, quiet and large enough to come back many times. Very refreshing and relaxing, in all four seasons.
