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.

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

I love walking my dog or going bike riding along the pathways every weekend. It's fun trying out new pathways too.

From NW Calgary to downtown -- rollerblading, biking, running or just walking - beautiful scenery all along the way. Much of it is beside the Bow River -- with some great places to stop for coffee and snacks. Calgarians are lucky to have such a great pathway!

Use the train system, it comes regularly and is easy to access throughout the city. Great for tourists and those not familiar with the city.
