The river area downtown is definitely one of the nicest parts of Calgary. You can walk down one side, cross over and come back up the other. Often there are events set up in the park. Nicely landscaped and lots of people around.

Easily accessible, Prince's Island is a great place for a walk. Interesting sculptures and lots of ducks and geese.

Walks, runs, biking, rollerblading, picnics, big events from Folk Fest to Canada Day, throwing a frisbee or playing with ducks, skating in the winter- this is an inner city GEM.
