During our recent visit to Calgary we decided to give the bid sanctuary a visit. I'm rather into wildlife and landscape photography at the moment and we both like going on walks so it seemed a bit of a no brainer. Sadly I am used...More

An oasis in the city; very glad we discovered this! Saw 5-6 mule deer, ducks, black-capped chickadees, red-winged blackbirds, and numerous others. The workers in the centre were very friendly and knowledgeable. Was able to take many great photos.

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.

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

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
