This park has been around forever. You can picnic there, play all sorts of sports or just relax in the sunshine. It is a perfect park walking or running. Lots of room for the kids to play.

Best area in Calgary. Peaceful space to enjoy numerous activities. From boot camps to lawn bowling. Swimming, biking, tennis, baseball, pic-nic area with grills, childrens playground, fields large enough for soccer, summer car shows and a great winter rink outdoors. Amazingly inner city accessible. Superb...
