The parking lots and main trails are all well maintained, and mosts of the washrooms in the larger trailhead areas are open all year, so winter is a great time to visit Fish Creek Provincial Park. And for the winter sport enthusiast there are lots...More

I used to live right on the edge of Fish Creek. Lots of great biking pathways for cruising, but also some good single track in the hills that border the park. This is a great area in so many seasons.

Yes. Depending on where you are coming from in the City of Calgary, light rail 201 or bus #3 goes there. The park remember is huge so there are probably more than one stop.
