Calgary is Alberta’s largest city. One of the many reasons why residents live in “Cow Town” is because of the amazing outdoor recreation opportunities available within and in close proximity to this dynamic community.

Fish Creek Provincial Park is one of the largest urban parks in North America. Located in south Calgary, Fish Creek receives more than 2.5 million visitations a year and it is just one of about 75 parks in the city. In addition, there are more than 1,000 km of paths in Calgary, many of which have been connected in recent years by the Rotary/ Mattamy Greenway.

Kananaskis Country was born in 1978, and received world-wide attention when Calgary hosted the 1988 Olympic Winter Games. Located just a half hour west of town, Calgarians think of “K-Country” as their “back yard”.

Here you will learn about a wide range of year-round activities such as jogging, cycling, swimming,
bird watching, dog walking, picnics, and cross country skiing.
