  • A very interesting piece of art. Have a look and walk over in the day...then at night and enjoy the lights. The older style of simple concrete are functional...but for a few dollars more you get a fun...  more »
  • Nice bridge but for its price tag I expected something nicer. Total waste of money. Also isn't needed as there are several cheaper options a few blocks on either side of it.  more »
  • A beautiful bridge to look at and walk through. Accessible from the park along the river. Just a fun walk, especially on a sunny day.  more »

  • I've never seen a bridge like before. Great design and it leads directly to downtown Calgary. We just stopped by prior to our flight to see the bridge and downtown.
  • Was a real nice bridge to walk across while taking in the scenery. Beautiful design as well!!
  • At first I wasn't for it - but it's a great asset to the city. I'm excited to see when the final landscaping is done around the area - would love to see a small stage for buskers etc to create more of a hub in the area.
  • That's one of the must see places in Calgary. If you come here you have to go at least once; if you live here you have the chance to go everytime, which is pretty much what I do when biking, walking etc.
  • The peace bridge is nothing short of a modern Calgary landmark. Much maligned when it was first installed, it has become a favorite by many in the city. It has a unique style and fills an access need between two other major pedestrian bridges. The bridge has become a regular part of my lunch time walks and my marathon training runs, and it's always interesting to see what is going on on it on a given day (prom and wedding photos, skateboard videos, buskers, etc).
