  • This is a gem of little provincial parks! It is perfect for a family hike and picnic, complete with a natural wading pool for the kids. There are no BarBQs or fire pits, but still great for a picnic lunch!
  • This is a great little stop to check out a natural oddity while on a raid trip.
  • It was so overcrowded that it was not fun at all. Granted, it was a holiday Monday. It would be a great hike during the week when no one is there.
  • Great place to visit with kids. The stream is a great place for them to play.
  • Gorgeous gem just outside Calgary! It's a small but nice park with a close proximity when you don't have time to go out to Canmore or Banff
