Calgary's parks and pathways seem to always be in decent shape regarding cleanliness however as always and anywhere potholes exist. One thing that could be used to improve them would be art in any form, especially alongside the walls that people pass by. Possibly in the form of a "apply to paint" process where outgoing artists could use the walls... More

In winter Calgary gets snow and ice. But in Calgary, 350 kilometres of pathways are kept clear and ice free. So even if the side streets are full of ridges and piles of snow, you can still walk or ride your bike to work or for pleasure along the rivers or around the reservoir that is really a beautiful lake....

Not many cities have such a well connected and well maintained and vast set of walking and cycling paths. Cleared in winter and cleared in spring the network really is great for a stroll or a reasonable cycle, the maps are accurate and routes clear, all good really Rob

The Calgary Pathway system is unique as it connects multiple pathways throughout the City. You can run or walk in whatever type of scenery that you enjoy. Running or biking along any of the rivers or around the Glenmore reservoir are my favourite's.

Snow on the ground but all of Calgary is out exercising and enjoying the walk along the river. We spent 2 hours in -5 C. weather in the beautiful sun, clear day and enjoyed our river walk immensely.

I love Calgary's bike pathways. From north to south you can go for what seems never ending rides. The bow river pathway is also excellent

We use our bikes quite a bit in the summer and the pathway systems are always a treat because there is so many different pathways. We try to find a different start everytime we take out the bikes. We walk as well and love that many of the pathways are near rivers or water or some scenic attraction. It is... More

Great city to stay downtown and walk, jog or bike. The river pathway is one of the best in any downtown city. Lots to see very pleasant walking and very safe.
