RiverWalk Part 5 - Stage 1 is open!

After a long wait, the new section of the bikepath, wrapping around Fort Calgary, is finally open for all to enjoy. The Bicycle Super-Highway now stretches from the Centre Street Bridge, eastward through the East Village and all the way to Inglewood.

[A minor detour still exists due to the construction of St. Patrick's Island Bridge.]

With the new section open, users can run, cycle and walk along the river,
sit on the new benches and enjoy the fresh air

Stage 1 of the RiverWalk connects to the pathway under
the Inglewood Bridge. Soon, Stage 2 sill start developing
from that connection southward along the Elbow River

Stage 2 of Calgary Municipal Land Corporation's RiverWalk Project will cover the area between 9th Avenue, SE and 13th Avenue, SE. The construction start date for this stage is yet to be announced.
