Great place for families
Oct 2021 • Family
This is a great spot for families. We always stop here with our young children. The playground is fun for the kids and there are lots of natural things to climb on. There are many picnic tables and benches. There is a washroom and water fountain/water bottle filling station. There is a nice path by the river which is so beautiful. Great place for photos. Definitely a great place to stop for a picnic or just to enjoy the scenery.

Still a good place to get away from the crowds, and relief from costly attractions and shopping
Mar 2021
We found ourselves with some time to spare on a recent trip to Banff, and thought we should see if anything is going on at Central Park. It's always been abuzz with people and events, but with COVID, there wasn't much going on when we dropped by. I don't know if you need to wear a face mask while visiting the park, but you do when are in the general downtown area, so I would guess you should. They have done SO much to make this an important attraction downtown, well-planned parking, beautifully designed park, excellent riverside location, and fab new washrooms. As things pick up, it will be heartening to see things become more lively!

Nice picnic lunch
Sep 2019 • Friends
We decided that instead of eating out every single meal while in banff we would get some picnic stuff and find some cool places to eat our lunch. While exploring the town of banff a city worker recommended this location. We walked along the beautiful green bow river and found a nice table close to the pavilion in the park. The park has a large washroom facility on one end and also has a cool playground area for kids. Great place just to walk around and get some fresh air and enjoy some incredible views of the surrounding mountains.

A place to gather
Jul 2019
This is the place to be on Canada Day. Entertainment going on during the day, the Farmer's market to keep you fed and watered. Then at night everyone sitting on the grass listening to the music, and the singers. Finally the pyrotechnics to end the day before everyone makes their way home. Happy sometimes a bit cold. After all it gets cold in the mountains at night. It's an event that is memorable. At other times, the park is there for people to enjoy.

Not enough parking and packed
Jul 2019 • Couples
I found this venue to be very overcrowded and to access parking it was almost impossible. We were hoping to have a nice picnic here but gave up after we couldn't find a place to sit down.

Great civic amenity

What a brilliant place. Lots of parking space, superclean public restrooms (free and open long hours), and bike maintenance stations service a a beautiful urban green space with grand views and clean air. Time for me to move to Banff!

Tranquil setting

We had a lovely time in this park early Friday morning. It was calm and peaceful walking along the Bow River. A gentle cool breeze made the refreshing and invigorating.
