A great place to walk, bike, scooter or picnic. Gates lock the park by 8P...make sure your car is out or there is no way out until the next day.

We just love Fish Creek Provincial Park and use the pathways several times a week all year long. On this occasion, we took some firewood, picnic food and set up a camp fire at Hulls Wood. This is a beautiful area of the park with several picnic tables and some of the sites come with fire pits. Great way to... More

Fish Creek Park is one of our favorite places to visit. Good walking and biking trials, specific areas to have group gatherings, picnic shelters, stand alone picnic tables and good bathroom facilities. You can get back to nature in the city with lots of birds, squirrels and the occasional deer. Visitors centre has a good display on the history of... More

We are fortunate to live by Fish Creek Provincial Park. We walk and cycle here year round. You can see all kinds of wildlife, yesterday I saw a downy woodpecker. We have seen coyotes, fox, deer, and bird species galore. Also garter snakes which we love. On a hot summer day you can wade and play in the pools of... More

Excellent system of family friendly paved & unpaved trails for either long or short rides with minimal climbs, wonderful scenery along the creek with numerous bridge crossings & through treed riverbottom valleys.

Love walking dogs or cycling in Fish Creek Park. Owls and many other birds are in the trees right now. Beaver dam and pond is always under construction. Most paths are paved, but there are still some rougher trails by the river in the south end of the park.

So many paths to take and great scenery in Fish Creek Park! From high up on the ridge (from McKenzie Lake area), you can view the mountains, Bow River, the golf course & the city centre all along one path. Lots of birds and some wildlife seen too. It's a breath of fresh air. You can walk as far as... More

Fish Creek park is an awesome walking & cycling location. It has long trails and wide open space with a peaceful creek running through it. It is accessible by car. There is wooded areas and wide open prairie terrain. The park is huge and a cool retreat from the city close by. Easy access off a few different main arteries... More

Such a gorgeous spot! Our home backs on to the park, so it's like living in the country. We often get the wildlife stopping by for a visit. We use the bike paths all the time, and spend a lot of time with our cameras on a lazy weekend day. Love some of the spots located in and around the... More
