  • GREAT place to come for a casual walk that doesn't need to be as energetic as a hike. Great woodsy gem in south Calgary. Odds are good to watch birds and wildlife!  more »

  • Beautiful place to go for a walk or take the family for a picnic. Fire pits and picnic tables here.
  • Not as busy as the more popular areas of Fish Creek. Had a fire, enjoyed hot dog roast and clean fresh air as deer roamed about. Felt like we were camping!
  • One of many areas inside Fish Creek park, Bebo Grove is a must go place.
  • An awesome place to go for a walk or picnic. The picnic area is absolutely gorgeous.

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.
