  • This park has been around forever. You can picnic there, play all sorts of sports or just relax in the sunshine. It is a perfect park walking or running. Lots of room for the kids to play.  more »
  • Took us around an hour to walk from Calgary - path well laid out and an easy stroll. The park was busy but enough room to find a spot by the river to sit and have a picnic. As it was a sunny day there...  more »

  • Such a lovely Park to take a walk in. Go for a swim in the river. Nice picnic areas with small wood fire bbqs and picnic tables. All around amazing scenery and beautiful flowers everywhere.
  • Stanley park is really nice, but make sure to bring the bug spray. A lot of y'all grass and being by the river means you will get bitten. The pool is open now as well!
  • The park is pretty but there seems to be major construction work every summer. For the last 2 years I have seen major areas blocked off due to this.
  • The park is perfect. If it were only slightly larger. Outdoor fire pits, playground, world class ball diamond, fantastic kids pool, and parking is usually readily available.
  • Open park space with multiple playgrounds for the kids. The atmosphere especially around the river is peaceful and lots of open space for various activity.

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.
