Kids loved the water park

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

Several paths to... More

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.

We visited today to do some beach combing for driftwood - didn't realize there is a shore walking path that heads West from the water park car park, a lovely quiet walk that it seems not many people know about. Great beach combing with interesting pieces of driftwood = successful trip, there's even a few safe beaches for a kid... More

A great place for walking and admiring, it is a favorite place for kayakers. As well it is close to Heritage Park, another place well worth seeing.

We had a great time there last weekend . You can rent canoes, kayaks and sail boats there . We didn't spend to much time in the actual park , we went to canoe. The boat launch was very accessible and the people were friendly . The rescue came and told us to stay close to the shore line as... More

South Glenmore Park has a large diversity of landscapes. The west end is very woodsy and borders on the fabulous Weaselhead Natural Area. The middle section has lots of benches, a picnic area, a children's playground, the sailing marina, and great pathways. For most of South Glenmore Park, there is a developed upper pathway as well as one closer to... More
