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.

  • Love this park! I enjoy biking it and the downhill aspect of the trails. Also love to take my kids here on walks. Often see deer and other wildlife as well as spectacular city views and the mountains on clear days.
  • Parks department keeps upgrading, and adding more, pathways to asphalt, landscaping the few steep hills destroying the natural beauty of the place. Yet leaving broken concrete dump sites from dozens of years ago in place.
  • I used to take all the girls I dated to this place and they loved it. I guess view works sometimes or errtime.😉
  • Well manteined, very good path, peaceful although in the middle of the City. The view is fantastic and I always see some white tail deers. Love it!
  • Just a great park to hike. But off leash pitbulls by stupid people thinking they are ok with other animal's makes me want to carry something to defend my family just in case they turn savage.
