Lovely place for a walk, run or bike ride. It feels like you are in the woods in the middle of the city. Lots of areas to barbecue and places to explore.

This is a huge beautiful park. I walk my dogs through it several times a week and pick a different route to venture through every time. You can walk for hours in this park to enjoy the beauty and solitude of nature. There is a creek that runs through it, some parts deeper than others that I take the children... More

Fish Creek Provincial Park is quite a large park in South Calgary, with extensive biking and walking trails. Some of these trails and bridges suffered extensive damage in the flooding of 2013, but is still worth while to explore and commune with nature. It is a great park for bird watching. Deer are commonly seen. Coyotes and beavers may be... More

I made the mistake of visiting this park on foot, and I wound up just in the area where the bike path is. This part is probably much more enjoyable if you're on a bike or if you've got the stamina of a distance runner so you can go longer distances without getting ridiculously tired. Still, it's a good park.... More

We live very close to this wonderful park and pathway system in Calgary. The scenery is great no matter what season or weather. We walk and bike on the pathways in the park a few times a week. Often we see deer, pheasants, eagles and many other birds. At dusk, along the river, we have come across beavers and coyotes.... More

By preserving this strip of land along Fish Creek and the Bow River as a Provincial Park, city planners guaranteed that Calgary would have a beautiful park stretching across the Southern portion of the city. Running from Woodbine in the West to Cranston in the East, this park has kilometres upon kilometres of biking and hiking trails right inside the... More

Even tho I have lived in Calgary for over 30 years it constantly amazes me that I can see deer,wolves (not always a good thing) moose and eagles here. Bike paths in Calgary are very good as well. Certain areas of Fish Creek have BBQ facilities

I live close to the park & have spent many hours biking, walking & running the trails & paths of Fish Creek Provincial Park (I was there this morning). You would never know you were in the city, it's an instant escape from the hustle of the city. The path system is very well maintained & plowed in the winter... More
