On the east side of the park you get the visitor centre which has a very interesting, capsulized version of the history of the area. This is good for easily a 1/2 hour with enough pictures to interest children too. Just past the Ranche, there is an open air exhibit of a variety of art and mediums, which is interesting to see. This is great for even elderly people as there are a lot of benches.

We went for a walk along the fabulous Bow river trail & across to Princes Island Park. It is so pretty here, looking across to Downtown across the river. We saw lots of Canada Geese & their babies, so beautiful to see, plus some little black squirrels. There were neatly planted flower beds all around too, with plenty of places to sit, plus a picnic area. Everywhere was so clean and well maintained. We stopped and had a latte in the River Cafe, and sat outside looking across the river.

The landscapes of Nose Hill Park are quintessential prairie - scrub, small groves of aspen, grassy slopes. But due to its vast size, The City has made great trails for exploring the many environments in the park, and has allowed even more informal trails that are great for jogging, mountain biking, or just trying to find some peace and quiet. But the views are incredible! If go, bring your big long telephone zoom, and you'll be surprised as to what you see.
