Nose Hill Park
From the Nose Hill Park, the view of Calgary is incomparable. The location requires a bit of effort to hike up a gentle slope to the top of the hill. Once there, the reward is a 360-degree view spanning the Rocky Mountains, with the skyscrapers of downtown rising out of the Bow River Valley and the prairie stretching off to the east. The surrounding long-grass prairie offers glimpses of the local wildlife, as numerous deer, jackrabbits and the red-tailed hawk call it home.
Nose Hill Park is ok. It is great for a walk if you don't want to drive far, but there is nothing to look at. It is literally a big hill, very few trees, and walking paths all thru it. You can look at the homes that border it, of which there are some beautiful homes, but if you are thinking this is a nature park, think again. It is not. IF you want a local Calgary park with nature try Bowness Park, or Fish Creek park, over on the Woodbine, Evergreen side in the SW.
