Has pedestrian bridges connecting it to both sides of the river. Good place for sitting or jogging...or just sitting, enjoying the views and getting away from the city. On a hot day the trees give plenty of welcome shade.

This has always been a favorite place to spend time outside in the summer, but it is now our families favorite place to catch pokemon. We love to come down and hit so many pokestops on the island as well as catch interesting things we never see anywhere else.

Beautiful park with many paths leading to Kensignton, peace bridge and the crescent height hill. There is a area with some beautiful floral display, a small fountain. This park is walking distance from many downtown hotels. Good respite for tourists.

We walked through Prince's Island park and had lunch at the River Cafe. This is a nice, serene, getaway in the middle of Calgary. Right now, the Aspen's are turning and the scenery is beautiful. This is a great time to visit the park.

The title pretty much sums it up: this is a pleasant park to visit whilst in the city: very interesting to juxtapose the island with the bustling city just 5 minutes walk away.

On our first morning in calgary we walked around prince's island park to orientate ourselves and were not disappointed. The colour of the autumn leaves was spectacular and it was a little piece of serenity before the hectic time ahead! Plenty of places to sit and admire the fabulous views.

This is a delightful park in the middle of the Bow River. The gardens are well tended, the paths are everywhere, and the sculptures are interesting. You can look off onto either shore. Mostly it is just a beautiful setting that is clearly well used and much enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.

Such a lovely park. Beautiful views and places to visit. The paths all lead to lovely places within the park. A local photographer took us to the park for some wedding photos and I have to say he picked some lovely spots, along bridges, by the river on the rocks, and within the open green spaces. I then returned for... More
