  • This is a bridge of interesting design - made for people and bicycles. It seems quite functional. And takes about three minutes to stroll from one side to the other seeing all there is to see.  more »
  • This bridge is a very modern structure and well worth crossing if not only to see its design, but to wonder at the views on both sides  more »

  • Calgary friends took me down to Prince's Island Park and the Peace Bridge when I visited from California in April 2017. Lots of photos here already so will just add proof I was there. I had such a good time. This and many other features make Calgary an especially livable city. Multiple fingers up for this one.
  • Interesting pedestrian bridge close to downtown Calgary and Prince's Island park. It provides nice views of the bow river below. Not much else but cool to see. Visited May 2016
  • I didn't like the overall cost of the bridge when it was first built and I would have preferred to have a Canadian designer. However we now have the bridge and it's become an icon when people think of Calgary. It's a beautiful addition to the bow river landscape. In the end I'm glad we have the Peace Bridge.
  • I love this bridge! One my favourite bridges in the city! The view from this bridge is really beautiful! Absolutely a gorgeous bridge!
  • One of the modern structures recently built by the City of Calgary. The structure is beautiful, and the view is awesome, seeing Bow River and Price's Island Park.
