Fish Creek Provincial Park is a year round recreation destination, wildlife sanctuary and day use park located south of the community of Calgary, Alberta, Canada in the Southern Alberta region of Canada.
The popular river pathway system follows both banks of the Bow River and one bank at a time, crossing foot bridges, on the Elbow River. In total the Calgary trail network measures approximately 630+ kilometres. It is said to be the largest and longest paved urban trail network in North America.
During the summer months the Bow is a destination for such activities as tubing, kayaking, rafting, canoeing, birdwatching and fishing. On almost any given day in the summer there are people floating down the Bow through Calgary.
The wooden fort consisted of sleeping quarters, a guard room, storage sheds and horse stables. The purpose of the fort was to investigate and get rid of the whisky traders who had set up shop in the region.
