It's a bridge. One of FIVE between 10th St NW and Center St. It wasn't needed, and it looks like a giant hamster habitrail. Not situated so pedestrians can cross busy Memorial Drive and get right onto it - easily a block or so walk...More

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

It's a walking/cycling bridge which has some nice architecture but it's just a bridge. With another bridge 400 meters away. No big deal. It is convenient for lunch time walks downtown

For Calgary, this is a unique bridge. It also came with a unique price. This ame designed bridge may also be found in a few other countries, so Calgary didn’t get an original design regarding this bridge. No matter how good this bridge may look,...More

This bridge along the Bow River pathway is so sleek that it blends right into the landscape. It was designed by a Spanish Architect and opened in 2012. Try to get out at night and see it when it's all lit up.

Calgarians paid a lot of money for the construction of this bridge. Nice to see, take pictures in or outside. Connects you from Memorial Drive to Princess Island Park.

Not sure the tax payers appreciated the money spent but it is an interesting Bridge and gets you across the Bow river. In a good walking area.

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
