What is there to do at Edworthy Park?

Families and community groups go to Edworthy Park for a variety of picnic areas. You can book picnic sites that can accommodate anywhere from 25 to 100 people. Some have firepits, and some have shelters.

Edworthy Park Picnic Sites

Picnic sites are perfectly situated within sight of a playground and near washrooms, so throwing a party here is just a piece of cake.

If you are game for some serious hill-climbing, you would love the Douglas Fir Trail. It has plenty of nice lookout spots with benches so you can catch your breath and relax for a bit before making your descent. You can enter through the Douglas Fir Trail (West Entrance) or head over to the Douglas Fir (East Entrance). Either way you get there, you must stop at the Douglas Fir Trail Lookout Platform for the views of the river and downtown Calgary.

This park is also a popular spot for runners and cyclists eager to add some serious incline to their workout. Pet-lovers visit the Edworthy Off Leash Park for its off-leash area, where happy herds of dogs have lots of room to run.

Tourmaline Outdoor Fitness Park

The Tourmaline Outdoor Fitness Park is located on the north side of the river just down the way from Angel's Cafe. It includes multiple pieces of outdoor exercise equipment that can be used individually or in a circuit workout. 

How big is Edworthy Park?

The park covers a surface of 1.27 square kilometres and has over 5 kilometres of hiking and biking trails along the Bow River pathway.

The Douglas Fir Trail is a 2.5 km long hike that takes you through a beautiful Douglas Fir forest.

The forest is dense with lots of leafy undergrowth. The terrain is rough, with very steep sections, so wearing sturdy shoes is non-negotiable. To get to the trail from the Spruce Drive entrance, park in the lot at the base of the hill.

Follow the Bow River Pathway south, and you can see the trailhead on the right. There are even bike racks if you’d like to cycle to the trailhead.


Where is Edworthy Park Located?

Edworthy Park is located in the Northwest section of Calgary along the south shore of the Bow River. The Canadian Pacific Railway crosses the length of the park. It was named after Thomas Edworthy, who emigrated to the Calgary area in 1883 from Devon, England.

The Bow River runs all the way along the eastern edge of the park. There are lots of spots where you can pop down to the river to dip your toes or watch rafters drifting by on hot days. Edworthy Park has the communities of Wildwood bordering the south part of the park and to the north is Point Mckay and Parkdale

Edworthy Park South Parking Lot

Visitors can go on the South Access at 5050 Spruce Dr. S.W. via a long winding hill.

Edworthy Park North Parking Lot

The north parking lot is accessed by going through the North Access at Shaganappi Trail and 16th Avenue.

Both of these parking lots provide convenience as the park is narrow, so both provide great access to any part of the park.
