We decided to go for a stroll through the Park after dinner, before our drive home. It was a lovely evening & the Park was filled with all ages enjoying the beautiful surroundings. The playground had many young families playing & laughing, it was nice to see. It seems to transform people, those in the Park are relaxed, smiling &... More

Being from a smaller city, I don't venture downtown often. But whenever you go to PIP you can be assured there is always an event going on or about to start! In the summer they often do plays on the grass and have food trucks near by. My only negative would be how crazy busy it is! When you have... More

Prince's Island Park is a very pleasant green space in downtown Calgary. It is part of the Bow River pathways and close to restaurants and pubs in Eau Claire and not too far from businesses downtown or even Kensington. Combine it with a visit to the view from Crescent Heights directly north of the park (you have to walk up... More

PIP is my favourite park in calgary. It is a busy park during the weekends and now that pokemon hunting is in right now, it has become busy during the weekdays as well. It showcases nature's beauty right at downtown. I love the river with all the ducks swimming around.. nice view. There are live performances durin summer.. i hope... More

The park was clean and huge you can stroll here all day with some benches you can relax on. It's a nice place for family or friends to picnic but can sometimes be busy. There's a pool for toddlers to play.

This is a great place to come by yourself for a nice walk. It's clean and there are great walking paths. Parking can be a challenge on nice days but it's worth it.

We go to Prince's Island Park at least once each season. The changes in the natural beauty of the park offer something to look forward to seeing each season! We pack a picnic lunch or pick one up as there are plenty of good places to go to and enjoy the meal at one of the many outdoor tables offered.... More

We went to at St.Patrick's island with a herd of kids under 8 years old.The playground is terrific and great for tiring them out.There are plenty of benches nearby for adults to supervise. The walk through the park gives a different close up view of the river.
