Visitors to Calgary with only a short time to spend might want to get out and see the "Falls" area in Elbow Falls Provincial Recreation Area. Take a selfie, do a short hike, have a picnic, very easy to navigate. Scenic and beautiful.

Hi, yes there are public, dry toilets on site. The parking lot is flat and the first part of the pathway is very accessible for wheel chairs and walkers. There is a viewing area close by to see the falls comfortably. The upper view points are not suitable for walkers.
