The southern edge of Silver Springs is a large park, Bowmont Natural Park. It is often referred to as the “gully” or “ravine” by local residents because it dips down a hill towards the river. There are trails, picnic spots, athletic fields and an off-leash area in the park, and pathways that connect to the city’s multi-use pathway network.
Silver Springs is nearby two Calgary Transit LRT stations (Dalhousie and Crowfoot), and buses travel through the community and connect to the stations. Commutes are quick for both downtown workers and students heading to the University of Calgary and SAIT.
