What is there to do at Confederation Park?
Visitors can stroll along a stream in a manicured recreational park with facilities like tennis courts and a golf course. Along the creek and throughout the park are mature deciduous and coniferous trees.
The trees, shrubs and aquatic vegetation provide habitat for various birds and wildlife, including ash and spruce. Calgary doesn't have many great climbing trees, but several popular spots are in Confederation Park.
Near the Rosemont Community Centre, you can find some athletic fields and some benches and picnic tables. In the winter, this area has skating rinks and a toboggan hill.
The best place to see the ducks is at the new Observation Deck on the southern side. It is wheelchair and stroller friendly and provides a great view of the wetland pond.
If you are travelling from the West side of the park to the East, you'll go through a tunnel under 10th street. This tunnel has a mural and several flower gardens on the Eastside and the provincial and territory flag installation.

Children can let their imagination run wild as they climb over and under the Voyageur canoe sculpture. A multi-level fort that can be entered by using climbing nets. A thrilling4.5-metres slide to the bottom awaits when you reach the top.
