North Glenmore Park
North Glenmore Park was established in 1959. It is a lovely, well-maintained park. Pathways are snow cleared in the winter so that people can walk, jog, and even bike any time of year. The paths are wheelchair accessible, making it very convenient for everyone.
The park is on the north side of the Glenmore Reservoir, a large reservoir on the Elbow River in the southwest quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is the home to both the Calgary Canoe Club and Calgary Rowing Club.
North Glenmore Park has lots of benches, allowing visitors to rest & relax while looking out over the lake. It is a go-to place for family bonding because of its pathways, playgrounds and many picnic areas.
