Edworthy Park is located on the south side of the Bow River, a very popular area with off leash dog runs, a beautiful park complete with BBQ areas, fire pits and kids park. On hot days you will see many adults, kids and dogs wading in the river and a steady steam of people rafting and paddleboarding (life jackets are... More

Park on either side of the Bow River. Walk through the old growth forest up to a great lookout area over looking the river.

You can get here from south Calgary via the tricky to find Bow Trail / 45 Street access, or from the north, via the Memorial Trail / Bowness Road route, just off of the Trans Canada. The park, however, is on the north side of the Bow River. The gravel beach is a great way to get close to the... More

When I refer to the Edworthy Park and Douglas Fir Trail, I refer to the ENTIRE length of them both. The reason I recommend them is from a Marathon Trainer point of view they are the perfect running mate. There is no better way to work on your long distance endurance then via the Edworthy trail system. WHY? 1) Depending... More

For easy strolls, or challanging hike, this park is the best. Love the location, love meeting friends, and I would go more often than any other park.

...for many years I am regularly visiting this park and there is always something new and fresh and exciting. Mostly I walk my dog here but I was running here, too and had some great BBQ family parties. So, give it a try! Welcome, friend!

Was at the Edworthy Park for the June 4th Brain Cancer Walk. The cause was amazing and the walk along the river was wonderful!

Many don't know that Edworthy Park has an extensive past. It was the location of a famous brick plant that built structures like Calgary City Hall, The Calgary Herald building and many others with it's unique sandstone bricks up until 1931. This is a fabulous place to take the family on outings, bbq's, large scale events, hiking, playing frisbee and... More

If you want to run a hill, this is the toughest in Calgary. It is long, steep and nasty. Come here for a challenge.

I love this park upper side and the river side. The top park where the dog park is has such amazing views of the city and river valley. I love going in the summer but most especially in the fall to see the colors all over the city. Our dog loves it because there are little wooded thickets to explore.... More
