Quiet and peaceful walk by Bow River. Lovely views of the mountains. Saw several fly fishermen, and off leash areas for dogs.

There have been many chages since I started going there years ago. The off leash fenced area is a bonus however miss the easy access to the water with the dogs

Linear park along the Bow river with both paved and single track trails for biking and running. Great view of the river and you might see some deer or beavers along the way
