Great place to go biking!

Bike paths are very well maintained super clean and easy riding. Biked 32km around the park in one day! The beach looked clean but I did not go.

I think Fish Creek is boring unless you like picnics or outdoor activities, the creek is alright. If you have a dog and it does not run loose you could use it

Educational and good hiking trails. The personnel are very knowledgeable and offer great programs for school ages from Grades 2 to 6.

In a certain way this park is "in the middle of the city", but you think you are in the middle of a national park! Very nice area and great for a stroll. We even saw a cute mink walking around!

This used to be a good place until they blocked the various access roads, put up a giant fence and posted sentries at each gate not unlike a friendly gulag.

A lovely urban park with paved and rough paths. Enjoyed walking along the dry parts of the creek bed looking for fossils and interesting stones.

Very pretty Park, worth it if you are in the area. You get a feel for the prairies but beware and bring mosquito spray, especially if you have the blood they like, because I got eaten alive! The ranch is cute but the bakery is overpriced with rude service and so so food.

An actual large, wooded forest with trails and a river and things to explore. Beautiful! Wish there was a lot more of this in Calgary.

Huge park with lots of walking and biking trails. Good anytime of the year. Lots of different entrances to the park that take you to varied regions.
