Edworthy Park, Calgary

Situated along the Bow River in the southwest, this park has all the essentials: open fields for kids to run around in, reservable firepits and shelters in case the weather takes a turn.



Cascade Ponds, Banff National Park

Located just off the Trans-Canada Highway in Banff National Park, this picnic site makes for an easy and scenic day trip. Firepits are first come, first served, so arrive early to secure a spot, then spend the day walking the trails and cooling off in the ponds.



Bebo Grove, Fish Creek Provincial Park

This picturesque day-use area features several first come, first served firepits tucked within the trees. This oasis in the city is also close to Fish Creek itself, which is a great place to cool off on a hot day.
