Located just north of downtown and Kensington this large open park is great for summer activities and hanging out with friends or kids if you have them.

the park is big and very open great for a day out. The flower garden is on point and the wadding pool is a classic day with the small kiddies.

Last weekend we went to relax at Riley Park and that was certainly not what happened - in a good way! The park was loaded with fun loving families, running children of all ages, water fountains and wading pools and plenty of sunny spots for blankets. The park was a hive of activity with children buzzing around in and out... More

This park has a large swimming pool, a play ground and lots of trees for shade. It is close to city center. Take a picnic lunch and spend the day, the kids will love it.

Great park just north west of downtown in the Inglewood area. Frequented by families and couples and singles. there is lots of room to stretch out and there is one of the best wading pools in the city. I take my kids there often. On hot days it is packed with families having fun and staying cool.

The gardeners and grounds crew do a good job of keeping this park clean and properly manicured. The flower beds are always a treat to see. Such a great asset to Calgarians. Always a pleasure to go to to spend some relaxing time at. The younger kids will love the water park area.

This park is one of the centrepieces of Calgary's park system. Just outside the downtown core, it has a splash park for the youngsters, plenty of lawns for kids to run around on, and playground equipment. For the adults, there are beautiful flower beds and wonderful trees that just might be as old as Calgary itself. A few steps away... More
