What is there to do at Confederation Park?

Visitors can stroll along a stream in a manicured recreational park with facilities like tennis and a golf course. Along the creek and throughout the park are mature deciduous and coniferous trees.

Confederation Park public outdoor tennis courts

The tennis courts are located just off of the parking lot near 30 Ave NW and 7 Street NW. There are multiple courts to play on that are always kept in top condition.

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.

There are two playgrounds, the new natural Playground - Confederation Park and a small playground up the hill from the Rosemont Community Association building. The playgrounds feature swings, giant slides, sand and a water spout.

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.

Timber steppers in the junior area challenge balance and help develop agility. Children can also enjoy a tactile and creative experience while playing with a water pump in the sand.

The site includes exercise equipment for adults to enjoy. Multiple seating areas on custom timber benches and stone seat walls are also available. The bathroom is near the Confederation Park Majors Diamond, a short walk from the playground.

Confederation Golf Course

Adjacent to the park is the Confederation Golf Course. The golf course is open for cross-country skiing in winter, and the park hosts the Lions Club Christmas Light Display in December and January.
