This is exactly the kind of place we love to find. A place of natural beauty that is not inundated with tourists. Fish Creek Provincial Park is a local park, about 5 miles long and 1 mile wide that provides biking, hiking, swimming, etc. It is mostly natural, with the creek flowing through areas of grasslands and trees, providing many...

This is a very large park, one of the largest inner city parks in North America, filled with deer, pheasants and a wide variety of birds. You can see eagles, pelicans, owls and a long list of other flying attractions. Beavers are everywhere and fishing along the Bow is incredible. Or just go for a bike ride along its many... More

This ark is clean, quiet and very peaceful. I arrived with my girlfriend and left with her being my fiancé. We had a really pleasant walk around. Parking was free and the people we encountered were all very friendly.

Since i came to Calgary, I heard about this park so we went to discover it. It is soo quiet & soo nice. The best part when i got to see the restaurant nestled in this beautiful park. We went in to see it & apparently it is a historical building & they serve French cuisine. Lunch menu looks cheaper... More

I took a group on a field trip to the park. The park is a natural area that provides a calming atmosphere and an excellent chance to learn about nature.

I love Fish Creek park. It is a long park with dozens of kilometres of trails, winding through on both sides of the creek. There is an abundance of wildlife including deer, beaver, lynx, and the occasional bear and cougar, although I have never seen the last two. There is a great restaurant and snack bar by the Ranche.

My husband has painted a... More
