If you are perusing North American plants on this web, you can see references to a number of parks in the city of Calgary. Some cities are proud of their artificial parks which are mostly horticultural achievements. City of Calgary has a few of those but what we are proud of are our natural parks which are witnesses of our diverse nature.

Beaverdam Flats Park

Bow River in southern part of Calgary runs directly from north to south and Beaverdam Flats Park lies on eastern side of the river.

Bowmont Park is located on northern banks of Bow River in western part of the City of Calgary. It was designated as city park in 1975.

These two parks can be considered as prairie parks. They are located close together in north Calgary and you can actually look from one into the other. Nose Hill is the highest point in Calgary and you have clear view of the downtown with Calgary Tower.
