Location of Pearce Estate Wetland in Calgary

The Pearce Estate Wetland is a city park located in Calgary, Alberta. The park occupies 21 hectares (52 acres, 0.21 km2) along the Bow River to the east of downtown Calgary. It is described as "constructed wetlands filled with native plants and animals". The land was donated to the city around 1929 by then prominent Calgarian William Pearce.[1]

The park is located east of the Calgary Zoo and the neighborhood of Inglewood, at the eastern end of International Avenue, inside a bend of the Bow River. An interpretative trail was opened to the public in 2004.[1]
