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

If you are training for a half marathon it is a great area to run around. However in the winter and spring look out for slippery sections. I have heard you can fish for pike there too.

This is a very nice place for kids in the area to go walking or biking but there is nothing of significance there unless you are putting your boat in the water.

We had a few thousand people attend and participate in the World Sprints Outrigger Canoe Championships. They did an excellent job with the set up and organization of the grounds and on the water. We had a great time! Team Hawaii!
