Lovely Park

Grew up with this park in my backyard. Many found memories, picnics, bbqs, high school reunion, hiking. Love the Douglas fir Trail, the waterfall is such peaceful surroundings.

Probably the most underrated exercise park in Calgary. While the park itself isn't anything extraordinary the Douglas Fir trail on the other side is a fantastic running trail, with the right amount of technical and physical challenge for just about any runner/walker.

Great hike even on a warm day as it is mostly shaded going uphill. A steep climb but well worth it for the view of the city and the river. Afterwards you can reward yourself with an ice-cream at Angel's Capuccino bar at the base of the trail on the north side of the river.

It's not a very large park, but it's pretty special in Calgary. There are trails throughout, more like hiking in the foothills than being in a park in a city of over a million people. Great access to the river, walking along the train tracks, family barbecues in the park - a great way to spend a summer evening.

Douglas Fir Trail is a short hike on the river bank through trees near central Calgary. A great find. Heavily treed, some elevation gain, some great views of the Bow river (and occasionally trains passing below). Good for a family outing, a run or walking the dog. Great hike when you don't feel like driving to the mountains, or don't... More

I loved walking here as it takes you on the south side of the river and walking up to the stairs that give a majestic overview of the river from high up!I am thrilled to do this whenever I can .A great workout and after we go to snack at a cafe nearby...

On the other side of this bridge you can find a spot where dog owners take their furies to swimming. Also there is a nice path along the river, beautiful view and in contact with the nature. A bonus have the Canada Pacific Railway following along.

When we were there there was so much loud music dogs running off leash and trash all over the ground. The picnic trails looked like dogs were on them so we ate in our vehicle. It does have nice trails in some areas of the park .

Edworthy Park may not be so accessible to visit if you are coming from downtown Calgary and you don't have a car. But this should not stop you from visiting the park. It is good place to bring the family for an afternoon of both fun and relaxation. There are ready picnic tables & shelters, firepits and BBQ stands, playground... More
