an attractive walk in the Town

This walk beside the river was a pleasant break from the shops which is in town at the top of the main street - a well spent half hour.

This trail is perfect for everyone. It's a wooden boardwalk through the wetlands and its a perfect walk. I recommend this to anyone - don't leave the boardwalk or you'll fall in the water.

Beautiful walk directly in the downtown area on a boardwalk. It is directly adjacent to the crystal clear creek.

This was a perfect walk after dinner. We saw some really striking birds with black and red coloring. They were everywhere. The grasslands were a different terrain from most of the hikes in the Canadian Rockies.

This is a nice short trail through town that follows the creek. There are several access points and free public parking nearby.

if you are into birds this spot is for you. The wooden boardwalk crosses a marsh area with several open water spots. If you want to see the mysterious sora up close you will not be disappointed. Its best in the spring but I think it's fabulous all year.

A really nice easy and relaxing trail. It is only an hour walk but if you know your birds it could take much longer.
