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.

It is still closed due to flooding so this review is from the pre-flood time in 2013. We really like Inglewood. It is very accessible within the city, has tons of parking and is reasonably priced. We particularly like all the informative/educational components they offer. The Sanctuary itself has fairly extensive pathways, most seem to be wheelchair accessible. It is... More

When I was much younger and still lived in Calgary, my mother and I would go down to the sanctuary on an annual basis to enjoy the peaceful surroundings and look for all of the returning spring birds. I haven't been there in years and was so sorry to see all of the devastation from the 2013 flooding. We walked... More

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
