“You will forget you are in the inner city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

This is the best nature walk in Calgary. It is open year round from dawn to dusk and depending on the time of year different birds and animals can be viewed. Some of the highlights for me are great horned owls, tundra swans, pileated woodpeckers, and many others. Visit in the spring for warbler season and to see deer fawns and pick up the guide in the visitor's center that highlights all of the permanent and seasonal residents in the park (I think it costs a dollar or two for the booklet). There is a daily log book in the visitor's center to keep track of your positive IDs; scribble something on the way out or check it out before you start so you know what to look for. This is one of my favourite places in the city, be sure not to miss it!

“A getaway in the middle of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

I've been several times. I'm not a bird watcher, but still love the walks along the river and seeing the deer. It's a great way to spend an afternoon.

“Beautiful location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

this is a beautiful location within the city of Calgary. We enjoyed walking the trails, seeing the birds and deer, and watching the Bow River flow by.

“Nature at its best, downtown!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2008

I walk there almost everyday, and the scenery is beautiful with a nice little lake in the middle of the park and the Bow River runs along side. I see a new creature there everyday, whether it be a new bird or deer!! More often than not, we see deer there eating and drinking away.
