NileGuide Expert Says:
The reservoir is used for rowing and dragon boat racing, but it also has Heritage Park's paddle boat and a sailing club. You can't swim in it, or take a motor boat on it, but the reservoir can still be fun.
NileGuide Expert tip:
It's possible to find beavers in the nearby reservoir
- The south end of Crowchild Trail or 37th Street South West brings motorists and cyclists to the long stretch of grass and trees that make up this park along the raised north shore of the Glenmore Reservoir. From the high bluffs overlooking the backed-up waters of the Elbow River, visitors can look over the reservoir waters at small sailboats, kayaks and canoes. Looking west, visitors get an unobstructed view of the Canadian Rockies, over the brush and flats of the still-wild Weaselhead Natural Area. Public wash rooms and numerous parking areas are available. Within the park, the path is split into a paved walking path and a separate cycling/blading path. Paths encircle the reservoir, joining North Glenmore Park to South Glenmore Park.
