Spring- a wonderful time in Calgary when the buds begin to bloom on the trees, the sun’s warmth feels incredible on bare skin, and it feels like half of the city flocks outside to enjoy the weather. One of the best locations in Calgary to get outside and make the most of a sunny spring day is Edworthy Park in Montgomery. The park has over 5 km of pathways within the park area, and the pathways are connected to the Bow River bike and walking paths.
Downtown Calgary is a short bike ride or rollerblade away from the park, or a pleasant afternoon park. Edworthy has several playgrounds for the kids, and numerous areas to sit down for a picnic lunch or dinner (take advantage of the fact it’s light out until almost 10pm this time of year!)
Also found in Edworthy are 400 year old Douglas Fir Pine Trees- undoubtedly some of the oldest trees you will find anywhere in town!
While you’re taking in all of the nature within the city, don’t forget to stop in at Angel’s Café for a latte or ice cream. It’s located right by the bridge to the park, and offers tables with excellent views of the Bow River.
