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

This is a great little lake on the South side of the city in fish creek park. Great swimming and the water is clean and has nice sand around the whole thing. Even when it's really busy there is lots of space. Great for kids.

I have always loved this provincial park. It's huge, clean, safe, and a great place for all ages, walks, hikes, bikes, dogs and on and on. Picnic areas are great year round spots for hot chocolate and marshmallow roasts in the fall, or summer barbecues.

Great park within the city of Calgary. Lots of hiking trails. Great creek (if your dog loves water as much as mine does).

This is a beautiful little gem nestled right in the city. This park has great walking and biking paths. And the river runs right through it. We usually see deer and other wildlife while we're there, and it's a great place for bird watching. There are several picnic tables around the park, as well as group event areas. It's a... More

Totally brilliant in greenery and the sounds of nature that embrace you as you make your way through the many paths...I often covet the homes that surround this wonderful place...They must be blessed and peaceful.

Nice to have quick getaway during the day, enjoy onset of spring or biking during the summer. Scenic hiking trails, the lampposts and benches give an old world charming feel.
