Prince's Island Park is developed on an island on the Bow River and was named after Peter Prince, who was an integral part of the Lumber Mill.

The park is a beautiful oasis within a few minutes walk to the downtown core. In the summer there are many outdoor festivals that are enjoyed by all who attend.

Obviously, lots of green spaces being adjacent to Prince's Island Park, beautiful views of Bow River and of course the downtown skyline.
