Nature / Park
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. To visit Nose Hill Park and get the most from your holiday in Calgary, create itinerary details personal to you using our Calgary vacation planner.

  • Beautiful hike. Good view on the airport and downtown. You can just sit and see the planes take off. There is few decorative rocks which gives the place nice vibe. Very few people on the weekdays. So you can have your solitude. You can bike everywhere. There are some more advanced paths with some rocks and holes for mountain bikers. A bit scary in my opinion haha. Go on a sunny clear day and bring your sunscreen !
  • Nose Hill Park is an oasis in the middle of Calgary. It's been left more or less natural compared to the rest of the countryside. This is a great place to walk or bike. They also have off leash areas for dogs.
  • A wonderful way to escape the city with out leaving it. You can bike and hike and take your pet on leash. It goes for miles and has bathrooms in some of the parking lots. Although the city lights are beautiful at night I don't recommend going alone at night. Please use your bell on your bike and pick up after your dog to keep the park clean. Some times you can see deer and porcupine.
  • Lots of gazelles, coyotes, and all manners of animals running around! Though I don't really mind them running around, there are droppings everywhere! So do mind your step! Otherwise, this is a relatively clean, super fresh park that is welcoming to both human and non-human creatures alike.
  • Really cool. Great hiking/biking/dog trails. You can just picture the buffalo grazing around you.
