Right now it is still closed from the floods of last year. I really don't know when it will reopen. Great place to see Wood Ducks. Good little hike. Lots of wildlife to be seen early in the morning.

Due to the flood of 2013 this place has not reopened. Apparently it will not open until 2016. It is a great piece of nature in central Calgary and will soon be forgotten is they do not get funding to do the clean up.

It's amazing to find this little piece of environmental awareness and care tucked into the middle of the city. A nice retreat from the noise.

Hard to believe this natural reserve is minutes from downtown Calgary. Situated in the historic neighbourhood of Inglewood next to the Bow River, its a great hideaway from the chaos of the city. A perfect spot for birdwatching, photography and meandering along the trails.

Jay is right. This is from the City of Calgary site: The Inglewood Bird Sanctuary was greatly impacted by the June 2013 flood. A large amount of manmade debris was left behind and many of the sanctuary’s trails were severely... More
