Confederation Park

Confederation Park 2017
Detailed Description:

Located in NW Calgary, Confederation Park is a well manicured urban recreational park that was created to celebrate Canada’s Centennial in 1967. You can stroll along a tree lined stream through 160 hectares of beautiful cresent shaped green space right in the city. Here you will find picnic tables, bike paths, baseball diamonds and tennis courts. Tall trees line the pathways that are friendly to bikes, dogs, roller bladers and walkers. Canada Day, July 2017 was the unvieling of the new playground filled with sand, water, a fort and an upside-down canoe. The new playground is designed to get kids to challenge themselves outside. It’s part of a trend for children to assess risk for themselves. Confederation Park is an on-leash pet friendly park that is a wonderful place for unwinding after a long day. Add this park to your dog walking schedule, enjoy the scenery and make some new friends! Confederation Park follows the course of the North Hill Coulee where there is a rich riparian habitat which supports a large assortment of plants such as Douglas fir, Dogwood and Willows. It is also an important migratory spot for several species of waterfowl such as ducks, geese and gulls. In the dammed marshy areas you will find common cattails, bulrushes and other aquatic vegetation. The aquatic vegetation is vital in supporting a healthy population of muskrats and invertebrate species such as butterflies and dragonflies that you would find around a wetland. This year round park is a great place for geocashe hunting, a game of golf and is very popular for cross country skiing in the winter. In December & January the park is host to the Lions Club Christmas Light Display. Bundle up and take a stroll with the family to check out all the amazing light displays 5pm-11pm daily. Adjacent to the park is Confederation Golf featuring a 9 Hole Course, Driving Range and Putting Green. In the winter the golf course is open for cross-country skiing.There is also cross-country skiing in the park itself as well as toboggan hills for some great outdoor winter fun. Park hours are 5am to 11pm daily - Washrooms are seasonal
