These are the best locations in Calgary for fall photos

Oct 2 2020, 10:22 am

Fall is in the air – or, more specifically, colourful leaves are floating down through that air.

While the weather is getting colder, the days shorter, and the lattes pumpkin-spicier, there’s really no bigger giveaway to a encroaching autumn than in nature’s changing colours.

There are a few places around the city that are ideal for catching the leaves turn from green to orange to yellow, and we’ve thrown a list together to save you the hassle.

Here are a few of the best places to take in all of the season’s magic around Calgary this fall.

Prince’s Island Park

Probably the most iconic park in Calgary for taking in some good old-fashioned nature, Prince’s Island Park is also one of the easiest to get to – if you’re already downtown, that is.

Where: 698 Eau Claire Avenue SW

Glenmore Reservoir

The huge body of water acts as a mirror reflecting the blue skies and the yellowing trees, meaning you get 2x the view!

Nose Hill Park

A little bit further out of downtown – but still within sight of the skyline – Nose Hill Park has yellow forests, golden fields, and, if you’re lucky, you may even spot a dog or two.

Where: 5620 14 Street NW, Calgary
