Grab your walking shoes, your binoculars, and a drink and spend an hour or so walking through the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. You won't regret it. A river tributary runs through the sanctuary, and the old-growth trees are lush and inviting for birds and humans alike....More

This place is a great spot to spend some time looking at the wonderful nature reserve. We didn't see any birds this day. There is no charge for admission, so stop in for something unique to do for zero cost.

Not always a hot spot but you might catch a few magnificent birds on occasion. A peaceful afternoon walk is the by product of bird watching!

With the devastation from the 2013 floods still affecting the park, I didn't see a lot of birds on my recent walk. But really enjoyed getting to the Bow River on their newly reopened trail that goes left from the access area before you cross...More
