I love the Pathway system, but I noticed quite a bit of construction on my most recent visit to Calgary. As a result, the path gets re-routed through some nice residential areas. Anyway, even with the construction work, I rate the pathway a "4" stars --- well worth the visit. The views of the city are gorgeous.

Get a map or track it on Google maps on your phone as its easy to get lost in the system. Sure beats getting cold or wet outside!

Marked trail ways throughout the city are easy to find and indeed one good trail is from Heritage Park following the river back to downtown, about 12 km, but well worth it and mainly on the flat.

The pathways in the city are great, along the river is especially nice but would be nice to have more pathways in areas like near the pumphouse theatre that would bring more people in.

The river pathways extend east to west along the Bow River and follow the Elbow all the way to Fish Creek Park in the south of Calgary. These wonderful pathways lead one through park lands and urban areas lined with benches to sit and admire the view and stop for a snack. The pathways are shared by everyone: walkers, strollers,...

The City of Calgary goes to great lengths to build and maintain our pathways and I am so thankful. There are so many good things to say about the network and having a map for it all tops it off. Even after the flood you can see the efforts to rebuild are incredible and I am happy to have my... More

As an electric wheelchair user it was great to have accessible paths without steps and to enjoy the Bow River path.
