Not to be missed , a brief hike on a beautiful wooded trail. You'll feel like Hansel and Gretel in a storybook setting. Enough of a hike and wooden stairs to get your heart going. Reminded me of Johnson's Canyon. Awesome!! So pretty!! And an amazing view at the top of the trail.

We love the trails and nature there as well as the river. Great place for walking, rollers, outdoor party and BBQ. A little spot of nature in a big town. Less busy on weeks day!

The playgrounds are amazing, and there is a lot of open space to play tag, frisbee, or just sit around and have a picnic under a tree. Angel's Cafe (across the Bow River) has great food for an awesome price, but if you don't want to buy food there are great picnic tables or spots all around. The Douglas Fir... More

Picnic area is wonderful for groups or families, lots of trails on the south side and access to the Memorial Drive pathway. Many times we walked from here to Kensington for the afternoon, it's quite a ways but it is beautiful and lively. People, dogs, bikes and rollerblades.

I like to go there for walks is a nice place to take kids since they have several playgrounds. By the river a great place to have some splash if the weather is not cold. I don't like that can be muddy if wet.

This is my favourite place in the city to run, walk, or just generally enjoy the outdoors. Even if you're not fit, this area of the city will bring welcome respite to the hustle and bustle of downtown and the work week and let you get back to nature while only being steps away from civilization.

I love Edworthy Park, Specifically the Douglas Fir Trail. Its am escape within the city, makes you feel like your in the Mountains. Although most of this trail is currently under construction (Hopefully they finish sometime as it's been under construction foy YEARS!), best place to clear your head.

This is a beautiful trail, easy, leisurely or one can run it, too. the paths are wide. Due to the flood in June, 2013, some parts are not accessible, but one could still walk by the railway tracks to complete the hike. Make it a point to stop for refreshments (homemade food) at Angel's Capaccino and Ice Cream!

has a good playground, picnic area with barbecue. Dogs like to play in the river here. A lovely setting for brief hikes and nice picnics. The river is there and so peaceful

This park has it all - single track, paved trails, dog area, bike only trails and of course an ice cream shop - all adjacent to the beautiful river. Great for group picnics and to get your toes wet on warm days.Not excellent, but very good.
