Local Calgary Real Estate Listings Located Near Nose Hill Park
Nose Hill and Broadcast Hill, which lies on the other side of the Bow River Valley, are the two remaining examples of the high plains which once covered this area. Ancient rivers, successive glaciers and their run-off have eroded the landscape producing the surrounding valleys and lowlands, leaving the two hills towering over the area. The most recent glaciers left their mark in the form of "glacial erratics" which consist of rocks and debris carried from other places and deposited in the park. One such erratic is on the east side of Nose Hill and was once a part of Mount Edith Cavell in Jasper National Park.
The park contains significant archaeological sites, including stone circles. These were formed by using stones to hold down the edges of tipis and are called "tipi rings". Because of its height, the hill was also a sacred place used for ceremonies and burials. European settlers began using the area in the late 1800s for farming and ranching.
