Bordering Nose Hill Park, daily outdoor activities are within reach, such as enjoying the Calgary Winter Club, the kilometres of nature pathways, and the Stone Maze. Parks within the community include North Haven Off-Leash Dog Park, North Haven Green Park, and Egert's Park. Nearby amenities include Pelican Pier - Seafood Restaurant & Fish Market, Salsita Mexican Food Market, M&M Food Market, and Safeway Thorncliffe.
