Over the weekend I went for a walk in Baker Park. It was the perfect day for a walk.
Even though it was nice out there weren’t a ton of people on the paths. There’s a disc golf course in the park, and I saw quite a few people playing that, but there weren’t as many walking.
Unfortunately our walk didn’t last long before we had to find another direction to go in.
The Bow River is still fairly high and murky from all the sentiment.
There’s all sorts of paths to explore. Although Baker Park isn’t all that big, it does connect to Bowmont Park to the east and Bowness Park on the other side of the river (the pedestrian bridge was closed due to the flood).
There used to be an old TB sanatorium on what is now Baker Park. It was torn down when it wasn’t needed anymore and turned into a park. There’s lots of paths that lead into nowhere – reminders of what used to be there.
