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.

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.
