  • This is a very family friendly park with lots of benches and picnic tables. There's marked pavement pathways and plenty of places for enjoying sun or shade.
  • Well kept park that is great for walks or biking. There are also many BBQ grills and benches all over the park for get togethers. Went there looking for some soccer posts, did not find any but plenty of open space for the kids to enjoy.
  • Beautiful place with long walk ways and bike roads. Recently added some grills for bbq and benches which makes this park a good place to go.

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.
