Lots of trees and scenery. Wonderful place to spend a day with the family. Lots of activities nearby. A place to visit if you are new to Calgary. Watch for upcoming festivals as they are a ton of fun.

This is a great family destination whether you like to picnic or float down the river. It's incredibly busy on the weekends with hard to find parking.
