Imagine walking down a path past a strand of multi-coloured poplars in the fall as the leaves feather to the ground, back-dropped against the pure blue, big Alberta sky. One cannot help but become immersed in nature, and that is what Cochrane’s Riverfront Park encompasses, nature.
The park reflects the natural setting it is surrounded by, with natural amenities provided in the children’s playground. Beautiful wooden slides and climbing apparatus will keep the children busy for hours in the playground while parents interact with their kids or visit the area and have a picnic.
One of the featured attractions in the park is that it borders the beautiful Bow River. There is a boat launch area and many people spend an afternoon rafting or boating down the Bow River, or casting a line into the liquid jewel that is world-renowned for trout fishing. Cap the day with a fire or a BBQ in one of the half-dozen fire pits provided.
