Good park, access to the river and fenced off areas for training pups has came in very handy.

Great trails. Lots of different access points to the river. Lots of birds. Saw my first house wren.

Fitz the Dog approves; nice morning jog on a spring Saturday morning—not at all too busy before 7:00am. More noise from the Deerfoot than a hole in Kananaskis, but, and enjoyable trail through the off leash dog park.

An amazing dog park with many interactive places for pups to play. Paths are very well maintained.

Best off-leash dog park in the city. There's access to bow river so dogs can have a dip after a long walk especially during the hot summer!

Huge amazing off leash park, totally fenced. The river is near by but there are gates to keep your dog from the water if you want to keep them dry. Always packed with dogs, but otherwise it’s my favourite park.
