Seating: There are plenty of picnic spots and benches throughout the park area.

Overall: Valleyview park is one of Calgary’s newer parks – it opened in 2004.  I didn’t have a lot of expectations when I set out to check out this park. I knew it had a spray park, but other than that I hadn’t heard anything about it. It turns out this is one of Calgary’s real hidden gems. The playgrounds are fantastic, and the park area is beautiful with lots of places to sit.

The East end of the park has a number of beach volleyball courts which were being used while we were there.

On the South side is a baseball diamond and a soccer field.

In the center is a fenced area with a preschool playground, spray park and washrooms (open seasonally).

Just up the hill is an excellent playgrounds for designed for kids 5-12+ with a nice little seating area tucked in behind it.

To the west of the playgrounds is a man-made pond which is really beautiful.

A bike path runs through the park and there are picnic tables and benches spread out in the park. The park area extends west towards the Deerfoot Valley. They have some picnic tables right up on the edge of the hill. I bet you could get a pretty good view of downtown from there.

  1. The parks themselves provide great entertainment for hours on end. I really appreciate that the tot park/water park is fenced,has 2 tables with shade, and has seasonal bathrooms. HOWEVER, there is one major thing that I dislike about this park there is a fairly consistent influx of unsupervised preteen-tweens that hang out and need to be reminded to keep their language toddler appropriate. Usually if I say something to the older kids regarding their language they either clean up their language or leave.

  2. This is where I power walk every day. My grandkids like to play on the boulder rocks that have constant flowing water into the pond.
    How fortunate for Dover and surrounding areas.
