I love going here. They have interesting programs and activities, like watching the geese migrate, a lovely restaurant and hiking trails. My son had his wedding here and the evening was perfect with the sumptuous organic meal and the views. Highly recommend!

My friend and I luckily selected the most perfect late afternoon to go to watch the incoming geese for their nightly stay on the water! Stunning sunset, 1000's of honking geese and gulls dotting the sky and horizon like black confetti- truly a marvel to...More

I took a person I work with and it was a nice walk around. It is a very informative place of interest. It is a good place to go for a walk and enjoy nature.

Were taken here to see wildlife, and certainly saw plenty Canada geese, plus some other birdlife along the trails and lakes.Prairie dogs and the very cute burrowing owl in an enclosure, and buffalo on their prairie style field. Good place to come to walk, or...More

We went on a beautiful sunny day and enjoyed hiking in this unique setting. We sat and watched the Bison for a while and just really enjoyed our whole day of exploring.

I highly recommend paying extra to go on the bison safari, otherwise, they are not close enough to see well. The prairie dog exhibit was fun to spend time at and just walking around Fort Whyte was good exercise and nice for an afternoon.

The last visit was for coffee on the deck with friends. Sitting at the water's edge as nature unfolds all around is hard to beat.

Just a nice park inside the perimeter and outside the ordinary. Hiking, canoeing and in the winter the toboggan run.

You can take a bus as far as Kenaston and McGillivray, but then you would have to walk 15-20 minutes to get to Fort Whyte.
