  • This park is great! A paved path circles the lake so it's great for a run or a bike ride, there is lots of wild life from owls and geese to deer that can be seen in the park. There are lovely side paths to bring you to the river or winding around the tall trees. The close proximity to Sue Higgins Park/Southland Dog Park is great for those days when parking is scarce at the dog park especially on the weekends.
  • This is a great place for any kind of activity. There are picnic benches where you can bring a snack to enjoy. Maybe you want to enjoy a bike ride, jogging, rollerskating or just walking. They have trails for all of that. There is plenty of wildlife to see all around. There are bathrooms there. They also have a good size parking lot that is very easy to access.
  • I love going for a walk/run in this park. Lots of wildlife (Geese, ducks and other birds, deer, etc.) and lots of big trees. There is a playground for the kids and some picnic areas. There is a set of frequently cleaned bathrooms by the entrance to the park as well. You can float in a raft in the summer or skate in the winter. Great place to hang out with the family.
  • I love this park. Quiet and peaceful. There are tables that you can prep your food and stuff. You can do boating on the small pond or you can even meditate. A very nice place to relax and read a good book. 💚
  • Great place to reconnect with nature. There is a family of beavers that lives on the lake. The lagoon is a great place to go ice skating as they clear the ice of snow and put picnic tables near the edge so that you can put on your skates. Kids toboggan down the hill and onto the ice :) On New Year's Eve, staff offered free hot chocolate and coffee to the public skaters! They have covered bonfires to warm up to and there is music fed through outdoor speakers. Great place for picnics. Keep an eye out for wildlife - have seen a cougar here.

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
