This is a wonderful bridge, crossing over the raging river, there is plenty of space for walkers-runners-cars or just stroll along. Nicely painted and well kept.

We parked in Poppy Plaza and walked to the bridge. The free parking lot at the Plaza is on 10th Street on the north side of the Bow River, and it is on the north side of the Bow River. Makes for a nice walk
