Fish Creek Park had so much to offer. Cycling, running, walks and picnics. We love the cycle paths! There are designated picnic areas, some with barbecues and shelters. A little bit of wilderness in the city!

Excellent park with river crossings, deer, pathways, picnic spots, hiking and biking trails galore. Ideal for a quick escape, either running, walking or biking. Feels surreal that you can have this in the midst of a large city.

I was a little hesitant about going due to past bad press about its water quality. IT WAS AMAZING. For Calgary!! I was in Invermere last weekend and this beach is just as good as Kinsman Beach in Invermere. Although there really is no food for sale here so that sucks. I arrived around 10:30 AM, and it opens at... More

This park is great for walking, running and biking. Some areas are nicer for walking as you are in the trees.

Ever seen a bear, beaver or coyote in the middle of a city over a million people? Not in a zoo, wild? Come to Calgary and visit Fish Creek. It's a natural woodland area on the south side, bisecting the city. More than a thousand acres of forest, rivers and wetlands provide a conduit for mountain wildlife to enter the... More

The day trip was a nice surprise. I had not really looked it up before we went. A friend had mentioned it. We went for a nice bike ride through the park then stopped in for lunch.

It is great to swim in Lake Sikome but one can walk and look at nature. The trails are excellent for bike riding. There are excellent picnic tables where one can have a picnic.

This was the first time I've been to Sikome lake since before the june 2013 floods. This is also the first summer that they've been charging money to access the lake. I will gladly pay $10 for our family of four. It was a great experience. Firstly - I think the entry fee keeps away the crazy crowds. It used... More
