The best way to see Calgary.

Wonderful walking and biking paths, that weave through the whole city. Often the winter pathways are even better than our winter streets!

City staff keep the main pathways open all season, with very prompt plowing and sweeping. It makes winter cycling commuting much easier and encourages a more cycle friendly city. In the summer, the separate paths for walkers vs cyclist are great, but in congested areas, you do need to be aware of your surroundings. Sometimes, a walking stick is a... More

The city lives on the river pathways! Walking, running, biking, rollerblading, dog walking,exploring....they offer great experiences at any time of day! Art exhibits, yoga classes, opera, buskers, food, dancing- don't miss this! You're never alone- even in bad weather!

This is the best planned city I have lived in. The green space and pathways are fantastic. Kelowna should study this.

I love to roadbike and run and we live downtown so most of the river pathways are steps from our door. They are always plowed by the city and are only sometimes icy when weather beats out the cleaning crew! Most of my colleagues that live in the suburbs use the bike paths to commute to work! Go Green Calgary!

Loved the pathways all along the river, very nice near down town. The are paved and heavily used by all sorts of locals and visitors to the city alike. Fun way to view the city and get some exercise.

The pathways are good.. they get you into the city but in the winters they could use more care for icing. i find the path ways get icy very quickly and are not deiced in a timely manner.
