Great park, spring, summer, fall, winter

An oasis in the city where you can walk along the river, pathways and just sit and enjoy the scenery!

Let me start by telling one thing clearly, Edworthy park is huge ! Its one of the few parks in the city that is an off leash park for dogs and its the favorite place for dog lovers in Calgary. You will find families with members of all ages enjoying a walk with their pets and playing all sorts of... More

My husband worked 5 min away from here, we used it as a meeting point almost every day! Even in winter when ever possible we took a walk and enjoy the playground with our daughter. Great for picnic, BBQ, walks, hikes, bike rides, run, chill and have a snack at the cute cafe by the bridge.

A beautiful park alongside the Bow River with family picnic areas, walking/biking trails that lead to the downtown core, a neat place to stop for an ice cream and a unique walking bridge that spans across the Bow River.

When you are wanting something out of the downtown core and by the river this is the place. I love the accessibility and the park for the kids and walk routes!

Take two golden retrievers there frequently. Letting them run and play n meet other dogs n explore the environment is not only great exercise for them but also for me. After a walk from one end to the other and back home.... They not only have had a great time... They are well exercised and ready for their naps for... More

I can't wait for Spring time to come so I can start running the Douglas fir trail. It's like you are in the wilderness with a twist. The staircases are the twist. This trail is excellent for bootcamp or just basic exercise. I highly recommend this park.

Edworthy Park and Douglas Fir Trail is nestled right in the heart of Calgary. When you are on the Douglas Fir Trail you feel like you are out of town. It is great spot to get away from the hustle bustle of the city without needing to drive very far. Nice playground and picnic tables in Edworthy Park.

What I like about this park is what it doesn't have....not much. It is a great place for a picnic, playing at the river's edge, running through the woods, looking for skunks, riding a bike, hiking, just getting outside to play. Nothing is over organized, so your creative side can take charge for the day. I have loved this park... More
