I love coming here to walk along the pathways along the south part of Glenmore Reservoir. The pathway is paved, so it's good for bikes, rollerblading, strollers, etc. This side is a little more nature-focused than North Glenmore Park that has more picnic areas, open areas and group areas.

This park offers a little of everything. Treed areas, bike paths, walking trails, basketball court, badminton court, picnic tables, group outdoor kitchens, play parks for the children, water fountains, and clean washroom facilities. Certain areas can be reserved for private larger functions. Gorgeous views while sitting on one of the many benches that are strategically placed around the rim of... More

I've visited in both winter and summer and both times I had a great time. We mostly just go for a walk along the path that follows the water but the scenery is beautiful and you may even see some wildlife! When I visited this month, we weren't even on the path 10 min before we saw 3 male deer... More

I live close to the park (5 minutes away) and frequent the place for the past 12 years. I see a lot of people walking, jogging, running, strolling, biking, roller blading, or simply hanging about and enjoying the nice breeze. During the summer peak, remember to hydrate, although there's a lot of trees around, it could get a bit hot.... More

Our family gathered here in August 17th for a picnic. Lots of parking and lots of tables to set up on. There is even a picnic shelter near by. The view of the Glenmore reservoir was great, with the city skyline in the back ground. There is a bike/walking trail along the side of the reservoir as well. The public... More

Ma Kettle and I live a short distance away from this community park, and often pick up a coffee from Subway located within the strip mall across the street. It is so peaceful sitting on one of the benches before lunch, and doing, well, doing absolutely nothing. I suggest you bring a jacket or small pillow to sit on though,... More

This is a great spot to chill on a hot summer day. There is a splash park there, and the woods are great to wander around in as they are north facing they tend to be cool during the day. DO NOT Swim in Glenmore reservoir it is against the law. There are many opportunities for boating though. Kayaks, Canoes,... More

I visited this park today and I thought it was fantastic. It's crowded but it's pretty impressive I thought.

Having lived near this park for several years I have explored it extensively. From the awesome paved trails to the gravel and dirt trails that narrow down to walking through tall grass as you shortcut towards the Elbow river bridge it is a nice place to visit. One of my favourite spots is next to the marina watching the sun... More

Glenmore reservoir is in the middle of this park, and is a sizeable body of water well within the city limits. For a small annual fee, one can store a sailboat at the lake. I have a catamaran which is a blast to sail in Calgary's winds. Glenmore is also great for cycling, with a paved bike path circumnavigating the... More
