Overview

We gathered feedback on current and future recreational demands on the Fish Creek Provincial Park trail system to improve connectivity, safety and accessibility of trails within the park boundaries.

Feedback will help finalize the Fish Creek Provincial Park Trails Master Plan and be used to improve the park's trail system, while also ensuring the protection of critical habitat and cultural and historical features.

Fish Creek Provincial Park is 1,300 hectares, making it the second largest urban protected area in Canada. The park has more than 100 kilometers of paths for walking, jogging and cycling - including paved, gravel, and 100 single-track trails.
