It loooked very pretty today with hanging baskets everywhere and the sun shining above the Bow River. The views of the river are great from the bridge, and there are also excellent views in the oposite... More

I was reading the reviews, everyone is bang on, very well done, this is definitely a beautiful Park to visit with your family. There is one important detail they left out: this is the place in Calgary to play Pokémon Go! This is where the highest concentration of Pokémons are found. Also the most Poke stops and usually, many of... More

The park is lovely with beautiful flower gardens, outdoor sculpture and a nice playground. We happened on a performance of Hamlet on the outdoor stage - free but donations are requested at the end of the performance. The actors are from local drama schools in the area and did a fine job. The walks through the park are very nice.

There is even a walk-in restaurant on the island.... no cars allowed but easy parking close by, i.e., within walking distance. Three foot bridges serve the island as well as... More
