Nose Hill Park

Nose-Hill-ParkMuch has been done to preserve the Nose Hill Park. Today, it is used year-round by hikers, walkers, cyclists and other outdoor enthusiasts.

In the olden days, people could drive all the way to the top of the hill. But since the city has over 1 million people now, you have to climb the hill on foot. It is entirely worth it, though.

Nose Hill is a natural prairie park without any permanent water streams, only the rain runoff through the coulees and along the trails. It is one of the largest municipal parks nowadays, with 1,129 hectares of grassland.

What is there to do at Nose Hill Park?

From five o’clock in the morning until eleven in the evening, you can experience nature in the city when you visit this park.

Hikers can go up on the hill through the rough fescue grassland. Nose Hill Park has one of the most significant examples of this grassland ecosystem left on the Canadian prairies.

Nose Hill Park features nine great hiking trails, running trails, mountain biking trails, and so much more.

For those who just want to chill, you can take a stroll in the park while enjoying the lovely views of downtown Calgary from the park.
