Connecting the northern and southern sides of the Bow River pathway and downtown Calgary to the Sunnyside community, Peace Bridge opened for use in 2012. Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava created the pedestrian and cyclist walkway, which spans 130.6 m (428 ft)-- the width of the river.

  • This bridge commemorates the sacrifices of Canadians who have served in the wars. The thing which is even more interesting is to walk West to the north side of the Bow River and watching the other art installations related to the war.

  • This is a great crossing of the Bow river, both for bikes and on foot. The views in the area of the river and downtown is nice. 
  • Calgary's Peace Bridge is like Marmite... people love or hate it! either way you have to visit it... and it's close to downtown and price's island... or cross over and head into Sunnyside and Kensingt...  read more »
  • 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.
  • A must see. It's absolutely beautiful, wonderfully engineered, and adds character to the city.
  • 5/7 Calgary needs to spend more money on functional art like this. If it doesn't make people react both positively and negatively it's not good enough.
  • 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).
