I love this place mostly because it got a nice and clean washroom in every corner, a play area for every age, you can reserve a spot for an event even marriage, or get a nice spot under the trees which with my relatives and friends did.Plants and trees are well maintained, surroundings are clean and its huge.

This is a great dog off leash area on the top, complete with stone Teepee ring circles. You can take some amazing photos of this grassed and slightly treed park. Along the road going down to the river there are some old sandstone quarries where much of the old buildings were constructed from. If you go down to the park,... More

I rented Picnic Site#1 for a group event because it was the only site available on the date I needed. With Calgary Parks still recovering from 2013 flooding choices are still limited. I would not rent this site again. The park was incredibly busy (the group that booked site #2 had taken over and filled my site and had music... More

We use the park to start a great running loop from Edworthy to the Crowchild pedestrian bridge and then back again on the other side of the Bow River. Such a beautiful trail with a sense of quiet - away from the frantic pace of the city. Definitely the best part of the weekly exercise routine.

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.
