- Parking: On site
- Washrooms: None
- Paved, gravel and dirt path
Speaking of disturbances, I was a bit alarmed to see multiple signs warning of UXO's (unexploded ordinances). Apparently, the site was used by the military as a training ground before being opened to the public as a park, and dangerous little packages have been left just laying around. Needless to say, I stayed on the path at all times.
As I walked, I realized that today was the ideal summer morning in my books; the air was calm and warm, and the sun shone in a cloudless sky. The perfectly still water acted as a flawless mirror, and the reflection was so exact in color and detail that I almost doubted which image was the original. That is until a duck splashed down, shattering the illusion altogether!

Having woken from my dreamy state, I continued along the boardwalk beside the pond until . . . it ended - in the pond. No more path, just ankle deep water all around. So I launched myself into the bush, swinging from tree to tree. I almost made it, but as I leapt back to solid ground, I fell short and got what my husband refers to as a "booter". A double booter, actually. Ah well, it's all in the line of duty for a Calgary Walker!
