The Experience Will Leave You Hooked!

Investigate, explore and discover Alberta’s fish, wildlife, water and aquatic ecosystems. Explore hands-on exhibits in our Discovery Centre, feed the fish on a tour of our Fish Hatchery, go fishing in our Trout Pond, and take a stroll along the trails in our Interpretive Wetland. 

There is fun for the whole family at Bow Habitat Station!

Located just minutes east of downtown along a bend of the Bow River in Pearce Estate Park, Bow Habitat Station boasts four fun and unique family attractions, and is quickly becoming one of Calgary’s favourite hidden gems.

The facility is for all ages and is completely wheelchair accessible. Free parking is available in the main lot for Pearce Estate Park.
