Things to know

Planning to come to the park? Here’s a few things to keep in mind:

Make certain that you are aware of any trail closures. These will be updated regularly, based on the Park’s Operational requirements.

Reduce Your Impact, Increase Your Enjoyment

At present the only public road access and developed parking is at the end of Glenbow Road. The parking facilities that have been constructed were designed and built to accommodate the largest number of vehicles possible, but this is only about 100 cars. We are unable to expand present parking simply due to the fact that the topography of the land and location of roads and buildings do not offer us any further space.

Please, come with your group, but keep your carbon footprint small – carpool and visit in non-peak times!

When You Arrive

  • Park map signage is located online, at the main parking lot, and trailside locations throughout the park. You can purchase trail maps at the Visitor Centre when it is open (please note that Visitor Centre hours change based on season, and it is advisable to check these before you come). Use these to locate washroom facilities, picnic areas, emergency contact numbers, and to plan your walking and cycling routes.
  • Glenbow Ranch is a day-use park; there is no overnight camping, no camp fires, and the park is open during daylight hours.
  • Keep your dogs on leash and pick up after them at all times.
  • Stay on designated pathways.
