Nose Hill Park is mid-north in Calgary. It is a natural prairie grassland habitat that has not been modified with the exception of walking trails and benches. Deer, coyotes, birds, snakes, etc. all live in the park. Short grass, long walks, hilly, some brush and small groups of trees, parking areas, all free. Think conservation of prairie grassland in the... More

It's always amazing to find places that transport you away from where you actually are. Just a few kilometres north west of downtown Calgary is Nose Hill Park, 11 square kilometres or 4.3 square miles of pure prairie. While the edges of the park are close to major roads and neighbourhoods, at the centre are quiet little valleys where you... More

If Nose Hill Park is within easy distance for you,give it a try... It is a really gentle walk with great views of Calgary on a sunny day. Really enjoyable thing to do. My partner and I went twice within our 2 week visit to Calgary.

After a long travel day, I insisted upon seeing Nose Hill Park which is an elevated area outside Calgary because I was ready to do a little walking. There are parking areas around the perimeter of the park which is used by walkers, dog lovers, mountain bikers, etc. There are great views of Calgary from the top. One parking lot,... More

Nose Hill Park is a protected area where one will be able to enjoy for years to come. The hill takes about 45min - 1hour to walk, a favorite with dog walkers, and a joy to be at when the first crocuses arrive. The nearby area has restaurants and some shopping/

Nose Hill Park is truly a piece of the prairies preserved inside the city. No fancy attractions but lots of trails to explore. Bring your bike or bring your dog or just bring your family. You will see a variety of plants and if your lucky the deer will make an appearance too.

in the heart of Calgary this unique park defines very character of the city. This park is really big and a single visit won't tell you whole story but it is well worth your time and effort. Welcome, friend!
