Great spot to go birdwatching, and checking out other animals. We have seen lots of birds, deer, beaver, coyotes and even the odd snake. Unfortunately due to the June 2013 flooding it is not yet open, but I drive by periodically to see when they will get it open. Lots of paths, good bird watching and some great views of... More

Even though there was some sort of dog class going on there and it was cold and started to rain, it was peaceful and beautiful. Not sure what damage the June 2013 floods have caused but I cannot wait to go back. Lush and green with a sweet pond in the middle to fish real fish at!

Yes, all kinds of birds gather here! Bring your camera! On our last visit we enjoyed watching woodpeckers, chickadees, ducks and geese. A couple of bald eagles were also perched on a tree. This is a nice little bit of nature in the city! Great for families and children working on science projects. Visit the Nature Center to get a... More

Inglewood Bird Sanctuary is free, easy to get to by car, bus or bicycle. The Nature Centre has gentle lighting, lots of information and staff that love to hear what you saw. It is a beautiful oasis in the heart of Calgary. Even though it was severely flooded June 2013, there are guided tours available.

Birds, birds and more birds. I once came here with a bird watching group because of the variety of birds here. Whether it's birds you want to see or just walk along the river this is a nice place to go. Don't forget your camera

Although some of the paths are still closed due to the flood in June 2013, this nature park is one of my favorite places to walk. It is serene, and if you are quiet, you will see much wild bird life, as well as the occasional beaver in the river along the banks where they build their dams. I have... More

a great way to spend an weekend afternoon. Sitting by the river, watching those braver than us riding the rapids. Nice way to relax

On my visits I haven't been too successful and finding the birds they say are there - but you need to be there at the right time of year. I always enjoy walking through the park.

A very pleasant, easy walk in nature. Birds and often deer can be seen. Easy walking path. Have not been there since the flood but hopefully it was not badly affected.
