Gopher Park, located at the corner of 11 Street SE and 11 Avenue SE, is a small urban green space in Calgary, Alberta. It offers a small outdoor area for relaxation and recreation, with picnic tables, benches, and a basketball court.

As the name suggests, Gopher Park may have a specific association with gophers or may be known for having a gopher population in the area. Gophers are small burrowing mammals commonly found in grasslands and open spaces.

The park is on the edge of Inglewood's former industrial area and leaves a fair bit to be desired in terms of scenery. It's worth noting that Cold Garden, a brewery across the street, allows food purchased our brought from other establishments on their patio. So if you want to enjoy a beer with your picnic, head across the street instead of dining at this park.

There's picnic tables, but not much else. Unless you enjoy watching freight trains switch at the CPR yards, there isn't a lot here to raise the spirits.
