The park has great walking trails, access to the river along with a plethora of Canada Geese and their babies. So cute to watch on their daily walks and experiences. There is fine dining on the island along with some fast food places along the way. The trails and paved walks go on for many miles and bikes and rollerblades share the way leading to and from sculptures, historical sites and lovely views of the river. I was entranced and took hundreds of photos.

This is such an amazing place to stroll in the midst of the downtown high-rise buildings. It's adjacent to Chinatown and downtown. There were lots of people exercising as well as office workers doing their exercise during the lunch hour.

Fall colors were amazing. The Bow River is pristine and offers such a great reflection of the lush green vegetation.

The Prince's Island Park is a main place to visit in Calgary. It is charming, small and you can see the local vegetation in a very calm place all integrated to downtown Calgary and the posh neighborhood of Kensington.

This park is absolutely a must see when visiting Calgary. There are spacious, paved walkways which meander around the water, next to the Eau Claire shopping, cafes and historic pubs. From most sides of the park the downtown skyline is visible. Bicycling, walking, wheel-chairing and bench sitting park friendly.

I loved this place, its right in the middle of the city. A beautiful place to go for a walk, this was our first visit but definitely won't be our last.
