  • Had a lovely day strolling along the pristine Bow River. It's a lovely walk way which was topped off with this amazing piece of art called the Peace Bridge. No wonder Calgary is always listed in the t...  more »
  • Famous for sweeping lines and soaring super structures elsewhere, Calatrava gave Calgary a red worm!! Totally enclosed and with lots of light it encourages lots of activity. In addition to the people ...  more »
  • It is a cool design but at the end of the day it is a bridge. Not sure why anyone would get too excited for it. It serves a useful purpose and allows you to cross the river.  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.
