Having lived near this park for several years I have explored it extensively. From the awesome paved trails to the gravel and dirt trails that narrow down to walking through tall grass as you shortcut towards the Elbow river bridge it is a nice place...More

I spend a LOT of time around here. Great for a pleasant walk, and so on, though nothing especially of note to crow about. Still, for a dragon boater like me, it's great to relax in the woods once in awhile.

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.

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

While once famous/infamous for it's impromptu late night teen parties in the late 70s, it has become a great place to walk or bike for all ages. There is plenty of wildlife to see.

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.
