The rope swing west of Calgary is an awesome place to spend a day. Just 25 minutes from downtown is a swimming hole plenty deep to swing or jump into. There is a platform roughly 30ft high and a long rope connected to a tree that you can swing off into the water. Lots of people will take floaty rafts and hang around in the calm refreshing Bow River water.
