Fish Creek Park is a provincial park located in the southern part of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is one of the largest urban parks in North America, stretching 19 km (12 mi) from east to west. At 13.48 sq km (5.20 sq mi), it is over three times the size of Vancouver's Stanley Park.
The growth of Calgary has left the park bordered on all sides by the city. It is also bordered on the west by the territory of the Tsuu T’ina Nation (Sarcee), a First Nation. The Bow River as well as the Fish Creek pass through the park, which used to span the width of the city but because of growth the city has surpassed the edges of the park.
A variety of paved and unpaved pedestrian and bicycle trails that connect the park to the city's extensive trail system allow visitors to access on-site day-camping facilities, stables, and a swimmable artificial lake. The park features 80 kilometres (50 mi) of trails, of which 30 kilometres (19 mi) are paved, and is home to a large variety of natural wildlife, including deer, coyotes, owls, and beavers.
The park features a number of different picnicking and forest areas. The most widely used section of the park is the beach at Sikome Lake where thousands of Calgarians visit each summer weekend. The lake is man-made and is drained during the winter months. A popular year-round attraction at the park is Bow Valley Ranch, which is used quite often for corporate and private functions. There is no admission fee to enter the different areas of the park.
