South Glenmore is a bit the opposite of its cousin North Glenmore Park, which has oodles of parking and picnicking, but overall, is lacking in wild spaces. The shoreline to the Glenmore Reservoir in South Glenmore Park is beautifully wild, and starts right at 24...More

although the park is very nice in the winter, it is awesome in the summer. So much to do and see. It's normal to see deer in the park. If you drive down 90th Ave on a Sunday morning you will see the herd.

As you would expect, as it borders on the Weaselhead Natural Area, the west side of South Glenmore is a bit wilder than the east side, and is one of my favourite greenspaces. Access is from the 24 Street parking area, or the west parking...More
