Could spend hours here watching the birds and deer. Lovely shady walking trails on hot sunny days, with the river right beside you. Tons of birds to observe. Great place for photographs.

A lovely, free park in which one can see many types of birds and maybe some deer and a muskrat or two. Hawks, ducks, tree swallows, ospreys, and many others can be seen. Birders often will have their cameras on tripods, waiting for that perfect...More

We saw geese, ducks, seagulls, a magpie, and deer. It was so nice (and free!) that we went back a second time a week later.

You really could spend all day here in the summer. There's always something new in the big lagoon, and park now has trails right to the riverside, on the extreme north side, so that's always fun. There are a lot of deer in the park,...More

We were impressed with this gem. Although we could hear the highway traffic, planes overhead, and the occasional train, we were transported to another world here. Easy-to-walk paths, many birds singing, and amazing wildlife sightings. We saw a deer eating in the woods and a...More

We took a cab out to the sanctuary, however you could catch a bus for $3.25 CAD. The sanctuary is free, and there are good tracks to walk around and get close to deer, Canadian geese, we saw some nesting, ducks, and a magpie. We...More

We didn't see any birds beyond what we would have seen on a walk anywhere in the city. However, it is a nice escape and beautiful walk on level paths. It is not overly peaceful as you can hear traffic from every location of the...More

Grab your walking shoes, your binoculars, and a drink and spend an hour or so walking through the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. You won't regret it. A river tributary runs through the sanctuary, and the old-growth trees are lush and inviting for birds and humans alike....More

Jay is right. This is from the City of Calgary site: The Inglewood Bird Sanctuary was greatly impacted by the June 2013 flood. A large amount of manmade debris was left behind and many of the sanctuary’s trails were severely... More
