We did 102K of urban cycle touring in Calgary, 16K of it on the pathway around the Glenmore Reservoir. We appreciated the washrooms in South Glenmore Park. There were many people doing water activities in the park.

It is a park full of lush grass and a few park benches. Most people are cycling or walking on the pathway. It is a great place to throw the frisby or play football. You could also bring a picnic lunch and bring everything you need as there are no vendors in the park.

Very nice park in the city. The walking trails and bike paths are a good way to get some exercise while being in nature. We saw many different birds. Great place to have a picnic or bring an ice cream cone and sit on the bench watching a sunset or the boaters on the water.

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
