Rotary Chinook Fish Creek Provincial Park
Urban Nature Park
The Rotary Club of Calgary Chinook Nature Park in Fish Creek Provincial Park contains engineered wetlands that filter stormwater before it enters the Bow River. A system of natural surfaced walking trails leads the visitors on nature walks around ponds and one can see a variety of wildflowers and native plant species. Through the park there are five gazebos and numerous benches for visitors to relax and observe nature.
The Rotary Club of Calgary Chinook quietly developed a special 40-acre nature park in Calgary that is adjacent to Highway 22X in the growing sector of South East Calgary. This unique park is located on the east side of the Bow River below the community of Cranston. The nature park is easily accessible from McKenzie Meadows Drive, and forms part of the provincial park of Fish Creek Park.
A system of natural surfaced walking trails leads the visitor on a nature walk around the ponds and one can see a variety of wildflowers and native plant species. These ponds and the adjacent hillside attract several species of wildflower and upland birds. There are five gazebo shelters and numerous permanent benches throughout the area where a visitor can relax and observe nature.
