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.

Calgarians are so lucky to have Fish Creek Provincial Park right in the city. It is a wonderful place for a leisure walk, boating in Lake Sikome Lake, and brunch in the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant.

Phenomenal place to spend a day with nature and hiking or biking around. So many places to explore and see nature - see the many changes after the great flood of 2013

We had some time to kill in Calgary so we went to Sikome Lake to check it out. This entire park is very large and has plenty of different areas to explore. There are so many trails for walking and biking that you could explore this park on many different days and not be bored. This park is within Calgary's... More

This park is nice because it feels like you're out of the city, and you can bike or walk for quite a long time and complete a decent loop.

Fish Creek is a nice place to explore especially if you like to walk. My favorite places are in the BowValley Ranch area and Mallard Pt by Deer Run. In the Deer Run area your chances of encountering wildlife are greater. You must watch with young children since we have seen coyotes which do not appear to be scared of... More

We chose to bike through the park from the Ranche parking lot all the way to Shannon Terrace. What an incredible place this is. The park on the west side of Macleod Trail is full of trees and cool shade to enjoy. We came upon a deer and waited quietly for it to hide itself again. The paved pathway gets... More
