Grab you binoculars!

Not always a hot spot but you might catch a few magnificent birds on occasion. A peaceful afternoon walk is the by product of bird watching!

This used to be one of my favourite places in Calgary to go for a nice relaxing stroll. More recently, the site has been under construction or preservation which makes it for a very short walk. I always see some sort of wildlife, be it in the dead of summer or freeze of winter! Definitely worth checking out, but I... More

With the devastation from the 2013 floods still affecting the park, I didn't see a lot of birds on my recent walk. But really enjoyed getting to the Bow River on their newly reopened trail that goes left from the access area before you cross the bridge. While some of the critters may have migrated south or just moved on... More

When we were there at 5:15pm all we saw was magpies, robins, and some starlings. Very disappointing. Also uncomfortable as there are no bathrooms outside and the center (where I assume there were bathrooms) was closed.

Went last fall and had a nice time, brought some fried chicken for our pizza and enjoyed seeing some nice wildlife in a reasonable walking distance. Want to go back this year before the snow flies.

The Inglewood bird Sanctuary is a nice place to relax and enjoy nature. Although I was there on business, I saw a lot of families enjoying the area.

Behind the visitors centre is a great opportunity to walk through some fantastic riverside areas displaying a variety of greenery and birds.

This place was terrible, we walked for an hour and saw no birds. They didn't even provide a map of their site. The lady working was not friendly.

A bit of heaven less than 4 miles from the city center. What a lovely way to spend a few hours walking/strolling this wonderful park. We are bird watchers and this place delivered. It is also free. Lots of habitat-woodsy, water, scrub, and paved the whole way with several bridges. You would never know that it suffered terrible flooding damages... More
