  • Really nice inner city park. Well maintained paths during all seasons. Clean washrooms, and a new park for the kids. Also a great place to go sledding in the winter
  • Beautiful, large park. Great for a stroll in any season. Has one of the best kept community skating rinks for shinny (no boards) with a good sledding hill nearby. Awesome place to take the family.
  • I grew up next to this park and have enjoyed many walks and bike rides through it. A little slice of nature in the middle of the city! Love the little stream and bridges. In the summer, picnic tables and fire pits are nice.
  • Nice calm park, great for quiet walks to take a break from things. Best time to cone here is in mid September when autumn is coming to have a nice cool weather during your walk with beautiful views. Also great to walk with a partner or special someone of you wanted to. The park also has public washrooms if needed.
  • A nice pathway style park with a creek in the middle, pathways on either side, and bridges every so often to cross between them. Calgary has several of these "going somewhere parks." Great for getting across town in a nice park environment.
