  • Very neat bridge connecting to downtown Calgary across the river. Bright red and love the architecture. It is definitely a photographer hot spot.
  • 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.
  • Nice place Daylight/ Night photography. Summer is busy with tourists and visitors. Sometimes you catch up with Street performers. Overall awesome place to go in the evening/ night!!
  • Nice work of architecture. The bridge links a more residential and cool neighbourhood to downtown by foot or bike. It's a nice stroll crossing it to go to the park next to it.

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.
