Really lovely and very busy public park. Great access to the Bow River and decent wifi from the cafe. Parking is tough during the day but clears out at night. Bathrooms are open daily til 8:30. Very popular with bikers and river tubers. Super friendly vibe.

Nice large lot in front of a busy park. We stayed on a weekend night so the morning was full of joggers and bikers, but still very quiet and peaceful. 4 or 5 other rigs were parked here before we pulled up.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Very nice place with washrooms. We had breakfast once at Angel’s café and enjoyed it! There were 3-4 other RVs and vans each night. Nice cycling and running trail and parks.

Nous y sommes restés 5 nuits, la charmante propriétaire du café Angel est même venue nous voir pour savoir si nous avions besoin de quelque chose!
Nous recommandons fortement!

Theres construction at the entrance and the sign says do not park but we decided to stay since we didn’t have anywhere to go and it was late. There are a few other cars though so it must be still okay to stay here. Wifi works too.

We stayed 3 nights (in and out) there but the last night we got a girl trying to break into our van while we were sleeping. We left in the middle of the night as she kept coming back and we didn’t feel safe. Otherwise great spot with toilets,running water and wifi.

Nice little lot right by the river, but it completely emptied out apart from us on a Friday night.

Great overnight spot. Nice view of the Bow River. We pulled in at night and felt safe seeing 5 or so RVs and vans parked there already. The lot was full by the morning with commuter parkers and traffic noise was fairly loud by 7 am. Public washrooms close at 8:30 pm. Angel's cafe is in the lot and a must try for breakfast!

Big parking lot next to the road. But also river work out ground and biking, running trails. Little bit noisy.

Report Check-In

very quiet place at night, other than the road nearby but that goes pretty standard doing this in towns. There was a couple small RVs and two Caravans counting myself so overnight is without a doubt allowed

Big carpark. Arrived around 5pm and there were a few parks but the lot quickly cleared out by nightfall. No issues staying here one night, walked along the river and got up and had a coffee at Angels Cafe right at the doorstep! Great coffee!! Only downside is that the bathrooms get locked at night so make sure you take advantage of them before they close.

Una noche aca, a 8 km aprox del downtown. Muy comodo y cerca del rio

Decent spot for one night and legal (no "no overnight" signs or signs to restrict parking at all). We stayed with our 24ft RV, there is one sign that says no trucks/big rigs in lot so we parked parallel on the road in with no issues. You can drive through the lot to turn around. Best to arrive late afternoon/evening to get a spot as it fills up early as a commuter carpark.

We stayed one night with our van in this huge parking.
Perfect place to visit Calgary.

Toilets (7:30am-8:30pm), potable water.
Road not far but it’s quiet during the night.
