This is one of the most beautiful parks within the Calgary city limits. It is unique in that it is primarily set in a natural environment with high quality paved trails for walking and biking. Get into the back country within the city.

I've been to the park multiple times this year and it's always a great scene. Take your bike, stroller or just a pair of shoes and you have kilometers of beautiful scenery and wildlife. I recommend going west when getting to the main parking lot (personal preference). Watch for bikes and listen for their bells!

Well kept pathway for night walks. Very open so the kids can go ahead without any worry of not being able to see them.

Go by yourself, with a friend or the whole family, this amazing park that runs across the SW half of Calgary, is a wonderful wilderness retreat. Gorgeous trails to walk or bike, run, or just find a bench and watch and listen. Let nature and spirit soak into your soul and let your life unwind. Its a glorious park, morning,... More

We went there in the fall. Blue sky and yellow leaves, cool air and the shiny sun, it was so beautiful and comfortable for a walk. Sitting along the river side, listening to the sound of the running water , looking at people fishing, never be so calm and peaceful. A nice place to spend a day for yourself

Fish Creek Provincial Park (FCP) is within the city limits of Calgary, Alberta and provides incredible wilderness experience. In a summer weekend, if you are unable to go to the mountains due to some work in town, your FCP is your destination for a quick wilderness experience. An excellent picnic spot for a small group/family. The treed lots for picnic,... More

Nature at its best, good place for kids as well to learn about wildlife. Loves the story about the snakes ( can't remember the particular specie) that poops to scare people off. Pathways are well kept and marked too.
