“Always an Interesting View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

The Pedestrian Bridge is in the heart of Golden with a view of the mountains, downtown, and, most impressively, the kicking horse river. Each day you walk across it you notice and feel something new. It is a great little spot to enjoy the scenery, feel the vibe of the community, and enjoy the sounds of the river.

“Surprisingly moving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Don;t expect to see anything more than a bridge across a river, but WHAT a bridge! Beautiful construction and, as others have said, the story of the project is very thought provoking. Congratulations to Rotary Club of Golden and all other partners on this wonderful achievement.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Went into town to the Spirit Square at the east end of the Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge. The bridge is really beautiful, but so too is the story of how the bridge project came together. Along the bridge are plaques with a photo-history of the development, construction and a salute to the hundreds of local, national and international volunteers who made the project happen. Surrounded by the snow capped Purcells and crossing the Kicking Horse river. Unbelievably beautiful. Spirit Square is a well designed community meeting place with a water feature that kids love to explore and frequent musical events. The night we were there, there was a band from Denmark and a local band. Kept us entertained for hours. Lots of "wee ones" enjoying the music, playing with friends and freedom, but well cared for by parents. Great and inspiring spot!
