I love that this park is close to my home, has an upper part where the views of downtown are beautiful, and a lower part with picnic areas and access to the river pathway. Being a dog owner, I also love the off leash dog park!

This little near-downtown park has some of the most north-easterly Douglas Fir trees in North America, as far as I know. Their range is usually much more west into BC, so it is a real treat to see them here. The walk is a pleasant one through the forest also. There is also a nice picnic area down near the... More

This park was actually quite nice. Over the river it was a little quieter and the view from the top is nothing to write home about, but it's nice considering its just a short trip from the transcanada! There were lots of people and it was still chilly, it would probably be better summer/fall and maybe even in the winter... More

I live at Edworthy Park and walk through some of its 70 acres of river paths everyday. It is a wonderful place to walk. There is a mixture of river paths, hill paths, paths through the forests and benches to rest at. There are some beautiful views of the city skyline from atop the hills. You would never know that...

This park is literally a world apart. Right in the middle of west Calgary, bounded by a large hill and the Bow River, this is a wonderful escape from the pressures of the day. Beautifully maintained and clean.

If you need to get away from all the hustle & bustle of the city life & want looking for a shorter drive to get there, this is your place to go. Very accessible, whether you live in the North part of the city or the South (it has entrance on both NW & SW side of the park -... More

The Douglas fur trail is part of the Calgary pathway system. The natural fur along the trail are fantastic. Iwould recommend the walk to anyone. It is not difficult and well maintained

If you go to Edworthy Park you definitely have to hike on Douglas Fir Trail. There are a lot of stairs though. It doesn't feel like you are in the city. It's calm and sometimes you can see the Bow River through the trees. If you like nature - go there!
