We have recently started canoeing with our seven year old daughter. Here are a couple of the places that we have discovered and love to visit.
Forget-me-not pond is west of Bragg Creek in Kananaskis Country on Highway 66. This beautiful site has picnic tables and fire pits. It is a great place to canoe and also has an easy walk around the pond.
Wedge Pond is approximately 70 kilometres west of Calgary on Highway 40.There is fishing as well as canoeing. There are picnic tables here as well and, again, it is an easy walk around the pond.
