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

A beautiful park that is a great way to experience nature in the city. Unfortunately both times we have walked it we have encountered unpleasant looking people with pitbulls walking the pathway. As most people know pitbulls kill more children, adults and other dogs then all other breeds of dogs combined so needless to say we would rather not have... More

Good for an event or family gathering. You have to book in advance through the city, but it is a nice spot to have one.

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.
