It is an urban retreat on the outskirts of SW Calgary, very popular with dog walkers and runners alike. We saw deer when we visited and took a picnic while the children enjoyed paddling in the creek.

Went for a 8 km walk in the park this past week, the weather had been rainy and cool earlier but the sun came out and there were lots of birds and wildflowers and Saskatoon berries along the paths. The scenery was calming and we saw several deer along our way. Just be aware of others on bicycles, some of... More

This park offers the opportunity for several outdoor activities such as biking, birding, walking, and general nature exploration. It can be accessed from many places with good parking and some city bus routes.

Its rare in fact i don't think I've seen anything like this, a massive park that intertwines through the city, beautiful, wildlife, picnics in the park, bike riding, hiking trails, fishing, rafting, a stunning little escape from the hustle and bustle

I grew up riding my bike, hiking, rafting, and exploring Fish Creek Provincial Park - it's a huge part of why I love Calgary and still live here.

Every walk in Fish Creek we end up bumping into deer and all kinds of critters. It's nice to simply take a short drive and end up there.

Whether you're a family trying to find a great place to have a picnic, go swimming (aquatic facility is actually a small lake!), or hiking, this is the place for you! And, if you want a bit of class, visit the Ranch House, which has been turned into a very nice restaurant and attraction (you can go upstairs and visit... More

This park is the best hangout place of mine and my friends. we go there for hiking, photography and sometimes for eating. You would definitely encounter deer in front of you and you could shoot them; only with Camera.
