This park is a wonderful place to walk, run, ride a bike and let your dog swim. There are lovely picnic tables, well maintained washrooms open in the summer and grounds for playing sports like football or frizbee. It is a beautiful walk into the park from a number of different neigbourhoods. Parking is FREE if you choose to drive.... More

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.

It's a great green peaceful area. A huge off leash area next to the river where dogs can have a great time. Very relaxing place.

Great place to walk, wade in the river or relax with a book! So peaceful and beautiful. Great exercise climbing back up the hill after😉.

This little park has a lot to offer. Get in early or book your site as this little gem will fill up fast as parking is at a premium. With the rivers edge accessible it is perfect for dipping your toes or sitting in the swift waters near the bridge. There are many day camp sites for booking and lots... More

Enjoyed a beautiful day at Sandy Beach park with the kids this week. It was fairly busy with lots of families and dog owners strolling the beach. The water was cool but refreshing. We packed a picnic and stayed for 3 hours! Highly recommend to everyone.

We walked this area on a weekend balmy day in February, and it is a peaceful, beautiful spot, for walkers, runners, cyclists, and dog walkers! The trees and blue sky were gorgeous, and photographers would also enjoy it here. There are washrooms, an off leash dog area, a playground, picnic areas, and, the glorious Elbow River to top the scene!... More
