For buying up this precious ribbon of land on both sides of the Bow River. It is truly a treasure with abundant wild and bird life so very accessible by the many trails. Landscape diversity from west to east resembles Alberta as a whole. It would take a few days to really experience this great urban park - taking a... More

I routinely take my scout troop for nature hikes here . There is a large variety of plants animals and pristine nature for your enjoyment. Placards throughout the well maintained pathways are helpful. In the summer amphitheaters are setup which is informative.

Beautiful area to walk and take in the pathways, sights and sounds of nature in the city. If you are a bird watcher or just like to wander thru some nice pathways in a great park this is the place.

Wear plenty of mosquito spray during the summer and run fast! Some easy trails and some more challenging but good for all ages and abilities

The trails in Fish Creek Park are well maintained and suitable for most athletic abilities. There is parking available at most of the trail heads, and the main trails are paved. I recommend watching the closing times on the gates as the hours change throughout the year. There are areas of the park that are more challenging, however you must... More

The west end is narrower and the creek is shallow for all but spring runoff and there are lots of great picnic, paved and dirt trails that are great mountain biking or trail running. The south east gets wider and flatter as... More
