“A rare thing- almost untouched land in the city.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2012 via mobile

It's simple high country grass and scrubland but gives a unique viewpoint over the city. Some moan about the lack of paved trails and "facilities" - that's exactly why I rate it. People: you have a zillion square km of space to build around the city. Take time to appreciate what you have before it's gone. If you are a tourist, it will give you a different perspective. Tip: to appreciate a city and airport view take the parking turn off 14th St NW. It reminds me of the early SimCity computer game...

“Great views of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

Nose Hill offers spectacular 360˚ views of the city. It's a great place for a long walk and requires some effort because of the pitch of the hill. Be careful, though - there are lots of coyotes and if the weather's been really dry, there's a high risk of grass fire up there.

every view is different no matter where you park. Its quiet, quaint and gives people the opportunity to let their dogs run off leash. Love it

“Great for walks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

Nose hill Park is our favorite place to visit in Calgary with our dog Yogi. It is a peaceful piece of nature in the centre of the city. It is common to see deer and other wildlife. We use the John Laurie entrance and walk around the paved path, just under 5km.
