Sandy Beach

Sandy-Beach-Park-CalgarySandy Beach Park is a beautiful place within the city with varying terrain and the Elbow river flowing through the park.

It features a rocky beach with a shallow wading area. Locals love the park because of its excellent access to the water and amenities nearby.

Sandy beach is one of the best places in the city to play in the river. Sandy Beach isn't the most extensive park around, but it is away from the city noise and view.

Since the flood a few years back, the beach has shrunk, but it is still pleasant to sit at and let the kids or dogs play in the water.

Visitors of Sandy Beach Park have access to multiple off-leash dog parks. The Riverdale Dog Park is great for the whole family as it has access to the river but also has beautiful covered pathways and many places to sit and rest. There is access to the Sandy Beach off-leash River Access through this dog park too. To the east of Riverdale Dog park is the Britannia Off-leash Area, where you can tromp through the forest and enjoy some stunning views. Naturally, it's a trendy spot for dog walking and cooling off on hot summer days.

Sandy Beach Public Boat Launch

There is also a convenient spot to launch a raft to float down the Elbow River. Enjoy the slow moving river as you pass right past the Calgary Golf & Country Club.
