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

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.

Lots of great paths for walking & biking. One criticism is that there aren't enough garbage cans along the paths.

Many trails for biking, walking, hiking. Lots to see and if you are lucky you'll spot a deer or maybe a cougar. If you take a picnic you can enjoy lunch at a picnic table by the river, just make sure you take your litter with you and keep it natural.

This is my family's favorite place to go for a quick getaway in nature. Lots of deer, birds, and other woodland/grassland creatures. The visitors centre has some great displays and if it's a hot day, Annie's is the perfect place to stop for an ice cream and a rest.
