Pearce Estate Park

Pearce-Estate-ParkPearce Estate Park lies on a curve of the Bow River in Calgary, Alberta. It flows through the southeast part of Calgary, covering 15 hectares of reconstructed wetland.

People describe it as “constructed wetlands filled with native plants and animals.” Then prominent Calgarian William Pearce donated the land to the city around 1929.

The park is part of a larger city project that connects it to the adjoining green spaces on the Bow River banks. The path also joins the Inglewood Wildlands and Inglewood Bird Sanctuary.

What is there to do at Pearce Estate Park?

Pearce Estate Park is a haven for nature exploration. Here you can find a variety of streams and animal habitats. Numerous species of waterbirds and several wild plants are also present in the park.

A gravel path takes you on a loop through the Ducks Unlimited Canada Marsh. It is a reconstructed wetland with well-maintained platforms that allow you to stand out over the water.

There are some other gravel pathways meandering through the park, crossing back and forth over picturesque little streams. Some of the water flows out of the fish hatchery after passing through naturally filtering wetland areas.

The Bow Habitat Station is a two-storey interpretive centre where you can explore over 30 Alberta fish species. The exhibit features a dozen freshwater aquariums with different aquatic habitats.

Between the Bow Habitat Station & Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery and the parking lot is a piece of area that was converted into a catch and release fish pond. Visitors can rent fishing poles inside the Bow Habitat Station for $5. There is a ban on all bait, and barbless hooks are required. The Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery.
