Golf Cart Tours

Registration for the 2024 season coming soon!

Enjoy a tour of the Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park. This interpretive tour begins with you being picked up at our parking lot and takes you all over the park with frequent stops to explain the history and ecology of the park while you enjoy the stunning vistas. This tour is particularly recommended for those with mobility challenges and is very popular with senior living facilities. 

“Smelling the ground and seeing these grasslands brings back so many memories of life on the farm. I never thought I would be able to smell these lands again…”
– Bruce, senior living facility golf cart tour participant

Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park contains some of the last remaining foothills fescue grassland as well as a scattered mosaic of wetlands and wooded areas. This diverse habitat provides home to a wide variety of bird species. Unfortunately, many of the best birding locations are far from the parking lot. Join GRPF Conservation Program Coordinator Blake Weis and Steward Annie Finch to visit the best locations on a golf cart tour of up to four hours where we’ll cover nearly 20 km of trail.

We are likely to see or hear around 30 to 50 bird species. During spring and fall migration we can expect to find a wide variety of migrating birds such as warblers, sparrows, and raptors. The breeding season offers grassland and foothills specialties like Vesper Sparrow, Mountain Bluebird, and Western Meadowlark as well as riparian species like Baltimore Oriole and many swallows, sparrows, and flycatchers. Some uncommon possibilities include Turkey Vulture, Prairie Falcon, Rock Wren, Sprague’s Pipit and Spotted Towhee. Late September also boasts stunning fall colors and possibly some early fall waterfowl migration.

There is no age restriction for this tour, but it is only recommended for children who are specifically interested in birds and bird watching. All children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult on every tour.

The program will run rain or shine! However, if inclement weather prevents GRPF from delivering the program safely, you will receive a full refund.

Additional dates will be added later in the summer, keep your eyes peeled!

Start time is 8 AM for all birding tours this year

Meet at the parking lot

Dress for all weather as it can be cold in the morning but very hot by the middle of the day. Most of the park is open grassland and is very exposed to the elements. Recommended items to bring include a jacket, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, water, snacks, and of course binoculars or a camera.

Walking Tours

Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation offers various interpretive guided walking tours throughout the year. These one to two-hour walks are led by our knowledgeable and passionate staff and stewards and cover topics such as photography, history of the park, and geology – to name a few! You don’t want to forget your camera on these tours for your chance to capture photos of potential wildlife and of course our stunning vistas!

Bicycle Tours

What a great way to see Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park and get some exercise!

Discover the fascinating history and ecology of Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park all while keeping fit and having fun! Our two-hour guided BYOB (Bring-Your-Own-Bike) tour will take you to the east end of our park showcasing historic points of interest, stunning vistas and a few great spots to rest and take in your surroundings. These tours are suitable for anyone able to cycle for a two-hour period. Although Glenbow Ranch is hilly, this tour is meant to be a fun ride and not a race.

Not suitable for children under 10 or those who cannot ride a two wheel bike. This would be a wonderful team builder or outdoor education class trip.
