Bebo Grove, Fish Creek Park

Bebo Grove, Fish Creek Park
Will it ever turn green, lol? I guess it is still only just moving into the second week of April, so we shouldn't expect too much. This photo was just a quick shot taken a couple of days ago, 7 April 2015, when I went on our first botany walk this year. As you can see, there wasn't a single flower to be seen anywhere! Also, we had just had two days of snow right before this outing. Thankfully, it had melted rapidly in most places. The Bebo Grove parking lot is at the bottom of this hill, just off the right edge of my photo.

"Fish Creek Park is a provincial park located in the southern part of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is the largest urban park in Canada and one of the largest urban parks in North America, stretching 19 km (12 mi) from east to west. At 13.48 km2 (5.20 sq mi), it is over three times the size of Vancouver's Stanley Park.

The growth of Calgary has left the park bordered on all sides by the city. It is also bordered on the west by the territory of the Tsuu T’ina Nation (Sarcee), a First Nation.

Fish Creek flows along the length of the park and joins the Bow River at the east side of the park. Fish Creek park used to span the width of the city but Calgary has grown beyond the edges of the park." From Wikipedia.
