2016 - Road Trip - Calgary Alberta - Fish Creek Provincial  Park - 1 of 2

The next stop on our summer road trip was to visit long time Calgary friend Jerry. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and went for a long walk in Fish Creek Provincial Park, a large park on the south side of the city.

I remember living in Calgary back in the 60's and Fish Creek was way past the southern city limit. Now its the other way around, the park bisects a big chunk of city.

About the park:
From wikipedia:
Fish Creek Park is a provincial park located in the southern part of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is the largest urban park in Canada and one of the largest urban parks in North America, stretching 19 km (12 mi) from east to west. At 13.48 km2 (5.20 sq mi), it is over three times the size of Vancouver's Stanley Park.

The growth of Calgary has left the park bordered on all sides by the city. It is also bordered on the west by the territory of the Tsuu T’ina Nation (Sarcee), a First Nation.

Fish Creek flows along the length of the park and joins the Bow River at the east side of the park. Fish Creek park used to span the width of the city but Calgary has grown beyond the edges of the park.
