Now that the days are longer, sunnier, and warmer, there is no better time to get out in nature. Thankfully, owing to the many parks and natural attractions Calgary has to offer, enjoying nature couldn’t be easier. Below we’ve compiled a list of our top five places to spend time in nature this May.


Tom Campbell’s Hill Natural Park

Tom Campbell’s Hill Natural Park offers one of the best views of the city while allowing you to feel immersed in nature. This huge, open-air park has plenty of hiking trails, an off-leash area for dogs, and of course, one of the most scenic viewpoints in Calgary. Pack a picnic basket and enjoy lunch on Tom Campbell’s Hill. 


Bebo Grove, Fish Creek Provincial Park

Less than 30 minutes from the Days Inn Calgary North Balzac lies Bebo Grove. This is a popular part of Fish Creek Provincial Park and is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Bebo Grove features a 5.6 kilometre looped hiking trail, which makes for a good morning or afternoon hike.


Douglasbank Park

You don’t have to travel far to enjoy nature in Calgary and Douglasbank Park is a prime example of this. Even though it’s located right in the middle of the city, you’ll feel like you’re somewhere else entirely. This park sits along the Bow River and features plenty of bike paths and walking trails.


Carburn Park

Further up the Bow River lies Carburn Park. This large natural space is made up of three ponds, a walkway, and plenty of natural beauty, from wildflowers to wildlife. With trees abounding, it’s an ideal spot to spend an afternoon lounging in the sun, or to go for a walk and spot the local waterfowl.


There’s no better way to enjoy Calgary in the spring than by visiting one of the city’s many parks. Even better? Make a weekend out of it and plan a staycation at a local hotel. We’d love for you to reserve a room at the Days Inn by Wyndham Calgary North Balzac. We offer luxe amenities, affordable accommodation, and an unbeatable location.
