During gentle, accessible, guided walks throughout Fish Creek, participants will have the opportunity to connect with the natural world and chat with others who are on a similar journey.

Join us! The fee is $25 and there are only 15 spots available.

Share Your Story with a Brick Along the Fish Creek Community Terrace

If you have been to the Bow Valley Ranch recently, you may have seen the Fish Creek Community Terrace, which consists of personalized bricks in front of the Cookhouse. We would like to thank everyone who supported Fish Creek Provincial Park by dedicating a brick along the Fish Creek Community Terrace in recent years. Every brick tells a story, and we are very grateful that so many community members are sharing their story here in Fish Creek. This unique fundraising activity provides essential support for us to continue delivering programs and events in Fish Creek Provincial Park. Consider dedicating a brick for phase four of the Terrace to be installed this summer. A brick would also make a great gift for a loved one or a good way to promote your local business.
