Calgary's parks and pathways are an excellent way to relax and enjoy the local outdoors. With over 10,000 hectares of park area and the longest (700km) urban paved pathway system, it is easy to enjoy yourself while exploring the city. Several of the parks offer family friendly picnic sites complete with picnic tables, fire pits, covered cook houses and sporting facilities. Fish Creek Provincial Park, located in South Calgary is one of the largest urban provincial parks in Canada. The provincial park is over 20km wide, running from Calgary’s west side city limits, east to the Bow River. Almost every community in Calgary enjoys a park nearby. The individual parks found on this page contain information and photo galleries.

The Weaselhead Natural Environment Park is located in SW Calgary, near the community of Lakeview and NW from the community of Oakridge. The park offers several pathways and hiking trails located amongst the Elbow river water shed. This is where the Elbow river flows into the Glenmore reservoir. Lots of nature to explore here and definitely feels like you're out of the city. Great spot for bird watchers and berry pickers. In late summer Canoes can tour the mud flats found at the West end of Glenmore reservoir. Launch your canoe at the Rowing Club in North Glenmore park.
