Edworthy Park is a great place to hike, geocache, have a picnic, start a bike ride, walk the furtherest extent eastward of Douglas fir, play by the river, walk the dog, etc., etc.

Edworthy Park was once a part of the Cochrane Ranch and was eventually purchased by Thomas Edworthy in 1883. Along side his neighbour John Lawrey, Edworthy established a profitable garden market that supplied fresh fruit and vegetables to railway crews and homesteaders. In later years, after discovering sandstone on his property, he operated sandstone quarries for the construction of many buildings in Calgary. The land was purchased by the City in 1962 for the development of a park.
