A great place to wander and catch some wildlife and enjoy the sights and sounds of mother nature and if it is springtime you may even get a whiff of some blossoms .. Several species of ducks usually on the water and on one occasion spotted a Great Blue Heron.

Due to the flood of 2013 this place has not reopened. Apparently it will not open until 2016. It is a great piece of nature in central Calgary and will soon be forgotten is they do not get funding to do the clean up.

It's amazing to find this little piece of environmental awareness and care tucked into the middle of the city. A nice retreat from the noise.

This is a wonderful way to spend a few hours - wonderful, quiet, peaceful, and it's an easy walk for all ages.

So close to downtown but feel so far away. Very secluded and right by the river. Bring some bird seeds with you and when you are walking along the paths, just stop, put some seeds in the palm of your hand and stick your hand up in the air......does not take too long before a bird come and land on...

Hard to believe this natural reserve is minutes from downtown Calgary. Situated in the historic neighbourhood of Inglewood next to the Bow River, its a great hideaway from the chaos of the city. A perfect spot for birdwatching, photography and meandering along the trails.

The destructive force of mother nature showing the still devastation of the 2013 flood. Be sure to use the guided tour

The Inglewood Bird Sanctuary has a great little building with information and friendly staff to help you out. There are nice walking paths, and the river nearby. It's a great place to spend some time. And in the Summer, they have excellent day camps for the kids. My son loved it, and so did I.
