Beautiful park right on Glenmore reservoir. Excellent pathways for running and cycling. The lake offers great sailing for small boats. Also a wonderful place to do rowing and war canoe races.

The South Glenmore park has a variety of stuff to do. The spray park is really good for kids as well as adults! The parking is very limited. There are many things to do around as well.

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.

The parking lots and main trails are cleared and maintained all year, so it's a great place to get out in the winter. In fact, it's quite popular all year with locals stretching their legs and getting some exercise. On the east side of the...More

Not as far as I know. The reservoir is limited to kayaks and canoes. You can use your own or rent them from the canoe club.
