This is a great place to get outside and experience nature in Calgary. There are well marked paths for hiking, paved and dirt bike trails, picnic areas, playgrounds. Access to the river, makes this a great place for the family, including our dog!

Although I have lived in Calgary for about 45 years, I only recently walked around the Douglas Fir Trail along the south side of the Bow River. It was almost like hiking in the foothills or mountains west of Calgary. In addition to the hiking trails, there are lots of picnic areas, and rafting on the Bow River in this... More

The park beside the banks of the Bow River in Calgary Alberta gives a feel for the countryside within the city. Here in the summer (very, very short Canadian summer from June to September) you can launch your raft and float downstream on a sunny day. The Douglas Fir trail is the most eastern stand of Douglas Fir trees in... More

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!
