We are lucky to live close to Fish Creek Park, so are able to visit all year. It's beautiful. There are many different entrances, each one showcases a different area of the park.

Fish creek is so large, I feel as though you'll never be able to see it in its entirety. There's always plenty of wildlife to see, from deer to beavers. It's a nice place to take the dog on a walk, to site see, or just relax. Fish Creek has "ice caves" where teenagers go to drink and jump in... More

Great place to walk the dog, go rollerblading or biking. We live 2 blocks from it and it is a major reason we live where we do.

It's massive and excellent for bike rides, walking. You can walk for miles. There are coyotes and other wildlife so keep your dog on a leash.

Very few cities are blessed with a park like this inside it. It is an awesome place to visit and hike or just take a stroll

This is an amazing provincial park within the city boundaries that provides an array of wonderful walking and biking trails. You will forget that you are in the city! Park is enormous, stretching more than 20 km and there's lots of wildlife (deer, birds), picnic areas and access to Fish Creek itself.

Known as "One of the largest urban wildernesses in the world, with over 54 miles of trails for hiking, biking and running". You can go here for a short time or a long time, it all depends on what you are wanting to do. It is great to meet with friends or spend some time outside with family.
