    The bridge overall looks great other than the tubelights lining its inside. Though, the bridge is not the greatest on close up, it does look great in pictures and does make for a nice group pic. The a...  more »

    We walked from our hotel in Hotel Village, through the suburbs, 7-8 km to the bridge. It is a beautiful design, but a small disappointment when we walked over the bridge, the beautiful promised park on the other hand, was renovated. We walked by and came in the middle of City Center at!

    The bridge is unique in structure and probably one of a kind. But keep in mind it is a bridge and gets you from point A to point B. It is worth a stop and having a look.  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.

    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.

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
