Had a great half day of sailing on the Glenmore reservoir. With a little experience or lesson from helpful city staff you can rent a boat of your choice and do some liesurely sailing (depending on the wind) around the lake.

Located right off Crowchild and Glenmore Trails, this great park on the reservoir provides and excellent escape from the day-to-day grind. Lots of trails lead off of it to other areas including Weaslehead Flats. Well worth a visit!

This is one reason why Calgary is such a great place to live! Great play park, great water park (in the summer), lovely views as you use the walkway around the area. If you're a walker, you could easily spend an afternoon there. When we have visited, we have never had a problem parking, there seems to be a lot... More

Stopped by with the kiddos to see the water park, they had a blast climbing around all the equipment and playing in the water.

The "Rez" has been a favorite haunt of mine for years. Whether for a leisurely stroll by Heritage Park or a ride around the Glenmore Reservoir, I love how Calgarians young and old make use of this wonderful park

At the edge of Heritage Park, South Glenmore Park is amazing for non-motorized boating. With sailing, paddle boarding, kayaks, canoes, dragon boats and windsurfing, there are plenty of boating options. Rentals range in price and it is well worth the trip. Classes are available and regular meetups as well.

A lovely park area, Calgary seems very blessed by lovely open spaces, with a good size splash park which unfortunately our youngsters were unable to take advantage of as we didn't arrive sufficiently prepared with towels and spare clothing. The park is on the edge of the Glenmore Resevoir and there are lovely walks through the park, overlooking the water.

Thank Peter J
