This park is located on the only delta in the city. It is 237 hectares in size and the amount and variety of wildlife is astounding. If you are lucky, you will get to see some Tundra Swans.

So hard to believe we have such a nice get away (from the city madness) right in the middle of that city. Paths are in good shape. People are either being respectful and not littering or the city is doing a great job with cleaning...More

Just like that you are in the midst of a beautiful Rocky Mountain foothills setting. Lots of wildlife in the morning and early evening. A great part of the world class bike path system throughout Calgary.
