Reportedly taking its name from the distinctive (at least if you use a little imagination) nose-like hillsides that surround the area, the Nose Hill Natural Environment Park – as it’s officially known – is one of the largest municipal parks in North America.

Encompassing 11 square kilometres of native grassland in Northwest Calgary, the park was created in 1980 after citizens spoke out against a plan to turn the area into a residential development.
