Fish creek is a beautiful place to visit any time of the year. Lots of walking/bike paths. Wild animals all over the place(deer,beavers,owls and anything else you might see in a forest) lots of picnic areas some even with firepits. A public lake that you can swim in on those hot summer days.

The best parks are the ones when you leave the city behind. This is true for Fish Creek and you can bike for miles, dip your feet in the ice cold stream, watch the wildlife, listen for chickadees, run into friendly hikers, bring wood for a weiner roast or simply escape from city life in the retreat of the Creek....

I know the flood 2 years back hammered the park hard, but in a way it just made it all the more real mother nature. The trails are still great and the bird life especially is fantastic. All right in the city.

Spend an hour or the whole day exploring the trails that wind their way along side the Bow River. Whether on foot or cycling this is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy some of the scenery in Calgary. Some stretches of the park do have washroom facilities, parking and picnic areas. There are benches to rest and enjoy... More

There arent many cities in North America that have a wilderness area with fantastic bike paths and nature trails within the city limits! Take your mountan bike or road bike (yes, there's trails for both) and enjoy! Dont hit any animals while you're on the trails. (Yes, you're pretty much guaranteed to see wild life)

A beautiful place to walk,view birds and wildlife. There are many places to enter the park, some are flat and wheelchair accessible and great for a picnic and others require good walking or hiking shoes.

The closest thing to a lake that Calgary has but sadly is has changed over the years. Sicome Lake.It has this weird fence all around it now. Safety issues I guess. Great to take the kids for a kind of beach day. There are lots of bike trails and walks to take. There are places to have a cook out... More

Fish creek is so large. You can walk, cycle, run or any mode of transportation around the park. It really is beautiful. Have a coffe and snack at Annie's or a meal at the Ranch! Have fun in nature in the middle of a busy city!
