We go occasionally for a walk and it is a great gem in the city. There is lots of space and also great space for off leash dog walking.

Nose Hill Park would have everything anyone in a city could want in a greenspace, and almost does... but as a park with large off-leash spaces, there are literally 0 garbage cans (other than at the entrances). I really like going there with my dog, but I just don't understand that part.

Great vast area for walking and hiking with ample parking lots. If you don't wish to walk with lots of dogs, don't go to Nose Hill Park!

if you want some exercise for yourself and your dog.......this is a very good place. Easy to locate....lots of parking on the east or west side. There are hills, trails that are level, up and down depending on your physical ability. The good part is if you only have 1 - 2 hours ...it is easy drive from most parts... More

I love this park, but the people who use it are becoming less and less friendly and neighbourly. I love to walk the paths, but unfortunately, many dog users don't pick up after their pets, and it can be quite disgusting. Lots of interesting history, flora and fauna, now being overrun by uncivilized people.

If you like walking, running and short hikes this park is a great area to explore. This "Inner City Park offers many trails and great views overlooking the city. At one time this park was on the outer edges of the city, but now it is well inside city limits.

A huge park in Calgary's north side that is basically the flat top of a very large hill. When walking in the park you are above the city and you feel like you are in the middle of the wilderness. A great place to to relax and shed your worries.

You can visit Nose Hill from several trail heads. Some start out relatively flat, while others start out with heart thumping elevation. Great training for mountain hikes! Pathways are not maintained for winter conditions, but with good micro spikes, you can hike the hills year round.
