There is something for you here, always.
Whether you come to sit on the deck and enjoy the view, or for a heart-racing trail run, we want you to know that this your place, so make it your own. How you connect with nature is up to you.
FortWhyte Alive is your destination for wild experiences, right here in the city.
Enjoy more than 7 kilometres of breathtaking hiking trails year-round. Explore forests and meadows, follow the boardwalk through the marsh and take in the scenery and wildlife from various lookout points.
This map will help you find your way as you explore our many trails, interpretive attractions and gathering spaces. Along the way, we hope that you experience our passion for the outdoors and the things we care about – active people, a healthy planet, and a vibrant, sustainable community.
Lengthening June days allow us to laugh and play for as long as we can, and we make the most of it until late August! Spend time outside with us under bright stars or the hot sun and life will just be better.
From the brisk mornings of early April to the warm evenings of late June step outside to join the natural world as we all shake off the long winter. Ice melting and birds singing their hearts out; these are the sounds of Spring at FortWhyte Alive. All corners of our urban oasis are brought to life - how would you like to reawaken this season?
From early September to the end of November the chill in the air seems just right for soaking in the crisp and fresh outdoor world. The explosion of colours in the forest and deep golden sunsets are sure to warm your soul as you choose your adventure with us.
A chill will sweep the prairies in early December and drop a beautiful cloud of white snow over our wonderland that will last until March. There is no such thing as bad weather here - there are too many ways for you to experience and savour the sparkling natural world!
FortWhyte for Everyone
More than just a ‘walk in the park’, we offer families the opportunity to connect with nature and each other in a way that will leave even the smallest of visitors feeling good. Head off the beaten path to discover and explore in a dynamic environment. If your family would prefer a little guidance, we offer many programs to help you direct your visit. It’s time to take the time for the things that will make your family feel alive - get outside and go wild!
We believe that adventure is always just outside your window, for those of every age and ability! Explore our walking (or Nordic Walking!) trails to stay active in a safe and beautiful environment. Join our Birding and Breakfast crew for an exciting opportunity to connect with nature and to learn. If you’re craving some relaxing ‘you’ time, why not bring a book and a cup of tea to the Biodiversity Garden?
