  • One of the ugliest bridges ever built. An eyesore that most of the time has broken lights and graffiti all over it. Avoid this bridge is possible  more »

  • Very neat bridge connecting to downtown Calgary across the river. Bright red and love the architecture. It is definitely a photographer hot spot.
  • Marvelous piece of architectural design. One of Calgary's most prominent features beside the saddle dome and Calgary tower
  • Beautiful from the outside at night. Inside is brightly lit with no atmosphere unless you stop to look out the sides at the river or the city light.
  • A nice little bridge. Wish I could have seen it at night time.
  • Form and Function. A piece of art in downtown Calgary
