Self-guided nature tour
A visit to this fantastic Calgary Park is a journey, but well worth it. Located at the east end of 17th Avenue SE (International Avenue), it is only fitting that like the early pioneers who moved west to settle this region, or the many thousands of new Canadians who have also immigrated to Calgary to set roots here, that you too, must journey overland to reach Elliston Park.Self-guided walk
Elliston Park was named after the Ellis family who, for five generations, have lived in and around the park since Shepard S. Ellis, his wife, and their nine children left Ontario to homestead in the West in 1912.
The park was named after the family in 1995 for the many contributions to, and activities in, East Calgary, Conrich, and Chestermere Lake.
There are numerous community and public parks in Calgary to explore.
