EXCELLENT for running

I am a long distance runner and love the pathways as I can go for miles and miles and always feel safe. The paths are well kept and beautiful.

We moved to Calgary about 15 years ago...for the first few years I was apprehensive and did not explore these pathways. I used to see one running behind the house and I knew it ended by the park and continued on John Lawrie towards Nose Hill...Maybe my kids were still young, but when they got into Junior High they started...

A beautiful warm day and people were out in force. On foot, on bikes, on 3 wheelers, skateboards, roller blades, with dogs and children, babies and birds, it was lively, colourful and entertaining. The Canadian geese were escorting their babies as well. Lots of fun and great to be away from city traffic.

You can literally walk all over Calgary on the Pathway System. My favorite part is along the Bow & Elbow Rivers , but there is a lot more to explore throughout Calgary. Check it out!

We began our run at East Village heading west along the river. What a beautiful system of trail and bridges. We ran out on the South side of the river, crossed over a fantastic footbridge (no competition with cars!) and headed back to East Village on the north side. As a cyclist I was also interested to discover that there... More

Still, there are miles of it. Some of the nicest miles are along the Bow River, mostly paved; the wilder areas may have gravel. Many sections have bike lanes marked, for those dim enough to not be able to figure out how to courteously share the path. Unless the weather is outright foul, it's always a very pleasant walk. Or...

The park system in Calgary is fabulous! When the weather is nice (or even when it isn't), it is hard to beat this pleasurable experience.

A great way to explore Calgary is the path way system along the rivers and and through parks. Heavily used by locals at lunchtimes for exercise.

Calgary is a winter city, and so if you're here anytime between November and March, there will be snow somewhere. That said, The City does a great job of clearing large stretches of the pathway, especially in heavy use areas like downtown and Glenmore Reservoir. But you need to be cautious even if it appears clearing has been done: with... More
