I visit the park frequently both on foot and cycling and now that spring has arrived in Calgary will be there more often. Much of the damage from the flood has been reparired and the pedestrain bridge from Mckenzie Lake is open again. The park runs from the Bow River west to Shannon Terrace by 37th St. SW. You can...

I love coming down here (I live just a few blocks from here), and going for a walk. It's amazing to find yourself in such a quiet place in the middle of a city of 1.2 million people! You might as well be out in the sticks, that's how quiet it is! You can walk for hours, as the pathway... More

What an excellent place to spend a nive warm spring afternoon. The trails are well kept, people using the facilities are courteous and responsible. Very nice and friendly environment for family walks. Nature at its best in the middle of urban living. Just absolutely stunning. Have fun... count the bridges... take your time and breath fresh air.

Walk or ride your bike to your hearts content. Fresh air and happy people just what the doctor ordered. Brings snacks and water and remember the toilets are only open during the summer season.

At 13.48 km2 (5.20 sq mi), it is over three times the size of Vancouver's Stanley... More

Great place to be, a great benefit to the city of Calgary. Escaping for the day has never been easier with the presence of this park.

This park is a beautiful park that has wooded areas and you even think you are no longer in a big city. The paths wind back and forth so getting lost can happen and therefore a compass or GPS is handy to have. There are off leash parts of the park if you are taking your dog. The bike path... More

FC Park is just a great place for families, biking, hiking, wildlife encounters and getting out. That is it nestled in the middle of south Calgary makes it all the more unique.
