Safe public parking is available at two key locations: Firstly at the eastern end of the park just off Beddington Trail NE at the intersection with Beddington Boulevard NE. The second parking option is located at the western end of the park with access off Harvest Hills Boulevard adjacent to the Beddington Golf Park. The Park can be accessed and enjoyed on foot or bicycle. Most of the pathways are paved. Observe and obey signs posted by the City of Calgary for your safety. Since a zoned-off area adjacent to the Beddington Boulevard parking lot is an off-leash area, dog owners frequent this park year-round. A seasonal washroom is available at this parking lot only. Proceed to the paved pathways to enjoy the natural indigenous beauty that the park has to offer. You can also take advantage of the numerous interpretive signs, benches and picnic areas dotted throughout the park.
Proceed from your parking lot and continue along the pathway system that runs in an east-west orientation in the West Nose Creek valley or on the ridge overlooking the creek. You will eventually see information signs that highlight Split Rock. This impressive rock is one of the best known glacial erratics within the Calgary city limits. The erratic is believed to have its origins near Jasper in the Rocky Mountains and was deposited here millions of years ago.
Continue to enjoy the hidden gems of the park including the low-lying protected wetland, taking the time to enjoy the bird life and diverse natural flora during the warmer months.
Following your explorations you might find that your walk has earned you the luxury of a pizza meal. Take the time - but be prepared to encounter a line-up - to order a pizza from nearby Seniore's Pizza. If the weekend line-ups are anything to go by, you won't be disappointed by the food! Directions to Seniore's Pizza can be found here or by following the Google Maps detour under the "Locations" tab.
