This is a great spot to launch your inner tubes for a float down the Elbow on a hot day. The only thing I dislike is all of the dogs running around off leash doing whatever they do.

A peaceful oasis with a rocky beach and lots of tubers floating by - small parking lot so best to get there early or go on a weekday - not exciting but calm corner of nature if that is what you seek

Lots of trees and scenery. Wonderful place to spend a day with the family. Lots of activities nearby. A place to visit if you are new to Calgary. Watch for upcoming festivals as they are a ton of fun.

Yes they are and they love it! There are lots of areas along the shoreline for dogs to share the water if some aren't sharing well. Enjoy!
