A truly beautiful walk and a pet friendly park. The park was renovated after the floods. There is now beautiful groomed walking trails, benches and picnic tables. It snakes along the river and offers nice views of the Bow River.

An excellent place to walk or picnic if you love water or birds. It's a very peaceful place, with decent parking and washrooms. The mix of manicured space and natural space is excellent.

Our family loves Carburn Park, we love having picnics and walking or biking around the park. We also love the fact that there is an off lease area to take our dog.
