Nose Hill Park, Calgary

4.5
#7 of 48 in Parks in Calgary
Visit the second-largest urban park in Canada, Nose Hill Park, where the natural environment serves as a retreat from the city. The attraction has long been a favorite spot for viewing nature and wildlife, including bison that fill the grassy slopes each winter. Keep your eyes peeled for native plants in this 11 km (4 mi) park, like sage and parry oatgrass, or watch for animals, which span 198 species. Numerous hiking paths wind through the park (you may experience mild difficulty on the slopes). You can take your four-legged friends on the designated off-leash areas.

  • Love going for walks here. It's a popular park but still very nice for having a quiet walk or bike ride. Lots of people with dogs, too. Sunrises here are gorgeous.
  • It's so beautiful! ! Wide open space with a magnificent view of the Rocky Mountains and of downtown Calgary. A very special place located in North West Calgary. The amazing variety of grasses all year long offer a beautiful palette of earth tones and textures. Every time I walk up there I am awe struck! ! This neighbourhood is so fortunate.
  • Great place to be in a City yet feel like you're in the country walking in nature. Always see some animal. Deer, foxes, etc. Also a great place to take your dog. Be mindful that certain areas are On Leash areas only.
  • Many open green spaces like this one might seem like a heavenly place to me as it looks peaceful, beautiful, tranquil, almost like the green fairy meadows and I think either Edmonton or Calgary has a nearly the same look and feel when it comes to places and sceneries like these, so I really like this park
  • Awesome bike paths and views all over the park. Great for early morning rides. Good trails throughout the park for walking or biking. Lots of hills so it's a good workout. You can even pick Saskatoon berries in August in the park. Often times you will see wildlife such as deer and even porcupine. The views from the top are outstanding. You can see all over the city. Good place to walk your dog and meet other dog walkers. Never too crowded because It is a huge park with multiple entrances and parking lots.
