Reviewed 27 September 2013

Everything for 6 years and under is available, bring sunscreen, park wear and whatever. Popsicle shack open and pool, park brings back memories, miss treehouse. No parking as usual.

“Great park for the whole family”
Reviewed 21 February 2013

We go here all the time in the summer. The wading pool is shallow enough in areas for smaller children and does not get very deep anywhere. Picnic with the family are always enjoyed in Riley park. Get there early if you want decent parking.

“Inner city gem.”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

Wow, good city planning with this park. I am born and raised in Calgary so I am biased but it's a little oasis and always has been for us. We love to go to the Sunnyside Farmers market in the afternoon and take some snacks over to the park for a little picnic. The wading pools are great and sometimes we just nap under a big ol' tree with the sound of a Cricket game in the background. Don't bring your dog though as it's a people only. Worth it anyhow.
