Twelve Mile Coulee is in the northwest portion of the city and was established in 2001. The coulee and nearby road were originally named this because they were approximately 12 miles from the post office in Fort Calgary and the area served as a mail drop on the old stagecoach run to Cochrane.
In this park you can visit a classic prairie coulee. A coulee is the regional term for a small valley or gully. The term originated with the Metis, who used the French verb "couler," meaning "to flow," to describe this land form where seasonal water flows from snow-melt or heavy rains. As in most coulees, there is a mix of grassland, shrubs and trees which play an important role in the prairie ecosystem.
Southern exposures of the coulee are the driest and are primarily native grassland consisting of Rough Fescue, Perry Oatgrass and Spear grasses. Intermixed with the grasses are wild flowers including Prairie Crocus and Golden Bean. On the moister northern exposures and shaded areas one finds shrubs like willows, Red-osier Dogwoods and American Silverberry as well as trees such as Trembling Aspen, Balsam Poplar and White Spruce.
The grasslands and tree/shrub communities in prairie coulees are home to many species of animals which, with a little luck, you can still find in Twelve Mile Coulee. Look for Richardson's Ground Squirrels (often incorrectly called gophers) and the mounds of Northern Pocket Gophers (which are true gophers). Watch also for deer, coyotes, porcupines and even the odd Red Fox.
Overhead, you may see circling raptors including Swainson's Hawks and Northern Harriers. In the trees there are Nuthatches, Woodpeckers and several species of Warblers and Vireos, and in the grasslands look for native sparrows.
The dominant land form is the coulee itself, which slopes southerly toward the Bow River. Along the eastern slope there are sandstone outcrops which are part of the "Porcupine Hills Formation" of bedrock that underlies the entire city. Toward the south end of the coulee, a large outcropping of bedrock is one of the best and most accessible examples of this formation in the city.
Archaeological artefacts, including a 2000 year-old stone circle or tipi ring, indicate that Aboriginal people had been using the park area for hunting and camping for at least 8000 years. Since the 1800's, European settlers used the area for farming and ranching.
Bowness Park is located along the Bow River between Stoney Tr. and 85 St. N.W. A shallow lagoon runs along the along the park's southern edge, a favourite spot for paddle boating in the summer and ice skating in the winter. Bowness Park is highly used for picnicking and accessing the Bow River.
Note: launching a personal boat, canoe, kayak or similar watercraft in the lagoon is prohibited. Watercraft rentals are not currently available but may be available soon through the new tenant of the tea house.
Bowness Park was built before the First World War by John Hextall, a local land developer. It was built in the town of Bowness as a weekend retreat for nearby Calgarians.
Baker Park is the beautiful Calgary park across the Bow River from Bowness Park and is the most popular park for outdoor weddings. Baker Park is the site of the former Baker Centre Tuberculosis Institution and was developed as a river side family recreation park.
Bowmont Park is a large natural environment park that lies along the northern bank of the Bow River in the northwest part of Calgary and is undergoing changes as part of the Bowmont Park improvement project.
Bowmont Park lies along the northern bank of the Bow River in the northwest part of the city. The park was created in the early 1980s and occupies about 164 hectares. The name is a contraction of the names of the nearby communities of Bowness and Montgomery.
Bowmont contains grasslands, valleys fed with permanent sources of water and bushy off-shore islands. There is also a mature Balsam Poplar riverine forest. This type of forest was once very common along river banks across the North American prairies. But, because these forests rely on periodic flooding for regeneration and most of the rivers have been dammed, the forests are under threat throughout much of their range.
The waters of the Bow River are home to species such as Canada Geese, Common Mergansers and several species of gulls. The trees and shrubs along the river are migratory routes for many species of warblers and vireos. There is ample evidence of the presence of beavers as many of the trees have been wrapped with wire to protect them from being chopped down. If you like amphibians, Boreal Chorus Frogs and Tiger Salamanders have been seen in the inland ponds.
At the top of the cliff face, you can see a thin layer of soil. This is the rich soil that nurtures the grasslands and crops that are so important in the European history of this area. Under the soil are 18 metres of sediment that were deposited on the bottom of Glacial Lake Calgary. The lake was formed as the last glaciers melted but the runoff was blocked by an ice dam further down the Bow River Valley.
Below the sediments lies the bedrock called the Porcupine Hills Formation. This bedrock was formed about 65 million years ago. When water percolates down from the surface, through the sediments it absorbs calcium carbonate. As it strikes the bedrock it flows sideways and exits out the side of the valley resulting in the falls in Waterfall Valley. The water then deposits the calcium carbonate on the algae covered rocks, producing the tufa.
Two sections of the park have undergone major changes. One area was used for agriculture and commercial greenhouses and the other for a gravel pit and concrete plant. These areas are being restored to a natural environment.
Nose Hill Park is a natural park that lies in the northwest part of the Calgary and is surrounded by 12 residential communities and covers 11 square kilometres. Nose Hill Park has many hiking trails and dedicated off-leash areas.
Nose Hill Natural Environment Park lies in the northwest part of the city, surrounded by 12 residential communities. The park was created in 1980 and covers over 11 square kilometres. The hill most likely gets its name from the fact that, from certain locations and with a little imagination, it looks like a nose.
Take a hike on the hill, but slow down to appreciate the Rough Fescue grassland that you are passing through. Nose Hill Park contains one of the most significant examples of this grassland ecosystem left on the Canadian prairies. From the plateau, there are vistas including the Rocky Mountains, Bow River Valley and the vast plains to the east.
The trees, shrubs and wildflowers in the coulees are very different from the species found in the fescue grassland. Apart from the native grasses, one of the dominant species in the park is the Trembling Aspen. The aspen, along with the willows occupy the north-facing slopes of the coulees and provide a refuge for many of the wild animals living in the park.
Large mammals such as deer and coyotes can be seen roaming the grasslands and coulees. The park is home to porcupines, northern pocket gophers, Richardson's ground squirrels and several species of mice and voles. These smaller mammals are the main prey for the northern harriers and Swainson's hawks, which are often seen in the skies above the park.
Please note: although coyotes also mainly feed on small mammals such as mice, they have on a few occasions attacked and killed pets in Nose Hill Park. If you want to ensure the safety of your pet, keep it on a leash at all times (even in the designated off-leash area on the top of Nose Hill). Coyotes are generally no threat to people but should be treated with respect and never approached or fed.
Nose Hill and Broadcast Hill, which lies on the other side of the Bow River Valley, are the two remaining examples of the high plains which once covered this area. Ancient rivers, successive glaciers and their run-off have eroded the landscape producing the surrounding valleys and lowlands, leaving the two hills towering over the area. The most recent glaciers left their mark in the form of "glacial erratics" which consist of rocks and debris carried from other places and deposited in the park. One such erratic is on the east side of Nose Hill and was once a part of Mount Edith Cavell in Jasper National Park.
The park contains significant archaeological sites, including stone circles. These were formed by using stones to hold down the edges of tipis and are called "tipi rings". Because of it's height, the hill was also a sacred place used for ceremonies and burials. European settlers began using the area in the late 1800's for farming and ranching.
Large areas of the plateau have been ploughed and planted to agricultural crops. Some of these areas are being returned to native grassland. There is an old gravel pit on the plateau which is slowly being reclaimed by nature. In the '80s, much of the park was destined for residential development. However, vigorous citizen action saved the land for the magnificent park we have today.
