This is still a popular spot for picnicing in the summer and often the parking lot is full. However, in the winter months there is not much to see or do here. A quick stop to take some photos or go across the highway to hike Fullerton Loop. There are dry toilets and picnic tables. The pond is gone but... More

I remember going skating here in the winter and walking the pond in the summer. It is now just a pile of rocks, it is so sad what the flood did to this area. I don't think it will ever be the same. Lots of people still stop by and pull out lawn chairs, and it maybe OK if you... More

Flood damage is very evident here, don't expect accessible hiking trails. A good place to bring a picnic and enjoy the river (it is no longer a pond).

This used to be a great place to visit with safe fishing and canoeing for kids on a man-made lake next to the creek. However, sadly, the floods of May 2013 washed it away and now the is a large expanse of rocks, gravel and fallen trees. Still wofth a visit to see the immense power of nature and what... More

This was a beautiful place with good fishing bot the Flood of 2013 washed it out. It is now part of the river...totally gone.

A nice place to skip rocks on the water, relax, take a picnic, walk around and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Great for families with easy walking. The area has changed a bit since the flood of 2013 but still a very popular spot for a quick break out of the city.

We saw people fishing even if I am not sure if they catch anything here. Although, one can enjoy the scenery while walking or biking...

went there just last week, the water level was lower and the pond was still half frozen. However, it was a sunny day when we were there. Lots of people walking their dogs or having a family picnic, Allen Bill Pond is a great short paradise away from Calgary. Love it!

This little lake is calm and small enough to be safe for pre-teens to explore their adventurous side without exposing them to too many risks. The lake is shallow but deep enough to explore with canoes or kayaks without worrying about many dangers, provided they wear the mandatory PFD's and can swim well enough. The pond holds some good size... More

There are also lots of picnic areas. I like to walk around the pond and check out the people who are fishing. Very relaxing.
