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.

  • I love walking or bike riding this park. You can walk for hours. The only down side to this park are the folks that can't control their dogs that chase the deer. A true dip into nature without leaving...  more »
  • A chance for a stroll on the prairie without leaving the city - great mountain views from some parts and often you can't see that you are near to habitation.  more »
  • We took our dog here for a long walk through the park. He loved it! Lots of interesting things for dogs to sniff out. The views at the top, along the ridge, are spectacular. Parking was easy. I was sh...  more »

  • As far as parks go, this one takes the cake. Very big, not too busy. Lots of open fields and hills, lots of bush. Many paths. A little bit of wilderness in the city. Watch out for coyotes, especially if you have a dog, very bad the last couple years.
  • Nice place for hiking but if people can please read the sign and let the dog free only in the unleash area it will be great. Not all of us are dog lovers and i am pretty sure there are people with dog - phobia who are avoiding this beautiful park. Please be mindful for others. The parks are for everyone. Thank you.
  • Perfect place for a walk with your dog as it does have an off leash area. Also, for you Pokemon fans, I have frequently found nests in the park as well as gyms and Pokestops. Make sure you bring bags for your dogs excrement, though there are not any garbages that I have found in the park thus far. If you're going to leave it behind, please make sure your bag is biodegradable.
  • How do you review a park? It had grass, trees, other people, lots of trails, a huge off leash area. Just gotta be wary of coyotes in the tree groves in the valleys
  • Awesome place to walk and bike! Love to take the dogs here on a nice day. It feels like you aren't in Calgary when you are up there. Nice place to go to get away from busy pathways.
