Allen Bill Pond

I don’t fish.
I have no desire to ever fish.
I don’t even really like eating fish.
Maybe that is why until now I had never been or even heard of Allen Bill Pond.

Tanya from Family Adventures in the Canadian Rockies told me about it saying it was a good place to go for a picnic and small hike, and close to Calgary.

And since Little Boy’s favourite food in the whole wide world is hot dogs, this is what I packed.

We got there early, good thing too – there are only 8 or 9 picnic tables and only 4 of them have fire pits and are close to the parking lot.

We had a great time, walked around the pond, watched some people catch a few fish, ate hot dogs, chips and Oreos and spent some good quality time together as a family celebrating Dad.

You will find it enjoyable for all ages.  The path around the lake is mostly paved  there is one section where it is not, but it's still passable with a stroller or wagon.


  1. Thanks for the shout out.
    Good story.
    I always forget how busy it gets there.
