Can you open the gate so you can drive down or does it cost anything
to use the Canoe/Rowing Club dock?
--We are unable to open the CCC/CRC gate to allow people to drive
down to the water as it is Emergency Access only. It does not cost
anything to use the dock but the CCC/CRC docks in North Glenmore
Park are the most congested docks on the Glenmore Reservoir. Parking
can be problematic and during regatta’s access to the public is
restricted. We suggest using the Calgary Yacht Club or Calgary
Sailing Club dock as you can drive down and they are not as
congested as the CCC/CRC docks.
Can I store my boat here?
--No, you may call 311 or the City of Calgary for boat storage at
the Calgary Yacht Club or the Calgary Sailing Club.

or go to the City of Calgary website for North Glenmore Park.

find courses and where to paddle board around Calgary and area.
Do I need to wear a PFD at all times, can I bring my dog with me in
my canoe, or can I swim in the reservoir?
--The Glenmore reservoir provides drinking water to a large portion
of Calgary residents therefore a few bylaws must be adhered to, they
are: No swimming in the reservoir. No dogs allowed on or around the
reservoir. You must wear a DOT approved PFD at all times.
Is the reservoir shut down all the time in the spring?
--Several factors will contribute to this decision: 1. During high
river flow periods, typical at this time of year, the level is
lowered to accommodate the flow from upstream of the dam to mitigate
the potential of flooding. As a result, The City of Calgary Boat
Patrol is unable to launch their craft, preventing them from
responding to calls for assistance. 2. There may be an excessive
amount of large floating, and semi-submerged debris in the reservoir
creating hazardous conditions.3. Highly turbid water obscures
hazards below the surface and makes it extremely difficult to search
How old do you need to be to rent a canoe?
-- 16 years of age and you need to have your parent/guardian sign
waiver form and supervise you while you are paddling.
