Cycle around the reservoir, walk a short distance with friends or sit on the numerous benches and people watch. I started visiting the park in 1988 and have never grown tired of it. On a clear day, you can see the most spectacular views of the mountains. Accessible to all - wheel chairs, young children, etc.

Great place to go for a long walk or a bike ride. Start at the east end - looking at the mountains and wind your way past beautiful homes, a marina, into the woods, around the lake/reservoir and come out at the old-fashioned Heritage Park. Great for running, walking or biking.

Had a great half day of sailing on the Glenmore reservoir. With a little experience or lesson from helpful city staff you can rent a boat of your choice and do some liesurely sailing (depending on the wind) around the lake.

Located right off Crowchild and Glenmore Trails, this great park on the reservoir provides and excellent escape from the day-to-day grind. Lots of trails lead off of it to other areas including Weaslehead Flats. Well worth a visit!

This is one reason why Calgary is such a great place to live! Great play park, great water park (in the summer), lovely views as you use the walkway around the area. If you're a walker, you could easily spend an afternoon there. When we have visited, we have never had a problem parking, there seems to be a lot... More

Stopped by with the kiddos to see the water park, they had a blast climbing around all the equipment and playing in the water.

The large parking lot has a covered eat hut, with a pretty complete playground, pretty amazing place. Tennis courts are nestled in the south side of the park just behind the parking lot. Several paths to... More

The "Rez" has been a favorite haunt of mine for years. Whether for a leisurely stroll by Heritage Park or a ride around the Glenmore Reservoir, I love how Calgarians young and old make use of this wonderful park
