Kinda cool to look at. A bit redundant and not built to plan, but it is a unique piece of the landscape.

Its a nice looking bridge and all, but unless you are already driving past it, I would not recommend taking time out of your day to visit this.

The bridge is quite splendid and you cant help but marvel at it's ingenuity, sadly it is stuck in the middle of nowhere and there isn't much around it.

Great example of modern architecture blending in to naturally beautiful surroundings. It shows that modernist constructions don't have to be a misfit in today's world.

This is a fun bridge but not very exciting. If you like bridges this is a must but for a family the activity will only last a few minutes.

In the edge of Down town Calgary there is this lovely bridge. It was not designed or built by canadians but a spanish company won the contract. Never the less it is a remarkable landmark. worth taking a walk on it. worth taking a picture...More

We parked in Poppy Plaza and walked to the bridge. The free parking lot at the Plaza is on 10th Street on the north side of the Bow River, and it is on the north side of the Bow River. Makes for a nice walk
