“There are two ways to get to the Bow River walking and biking trails. If you want to go East for an "urban walk" toward downtown, Prince's Island and Stephen Avenue, then go North on 14 St, under the 9 Ave bridge and then over the Bow Trail bridge, then down on the right you'll see the paved pathways. If you want to go West for a "nature walk" to enjoy a natural area with forests and quiet riverbanks, head North on 16 St, cross to the north side of 10 Ave and turn West on 10th until you see a gateway through the fence where you can cross the railroad tracks. Keep going and you will see the paved pathways. The gateway is located across from 19th St before the big roadway overpasses.”

“Gorgeous park with lots of running and bike paths. There’s tons to do with events/festivals taking place in the summer and ice skating in the winter. Checkout the River Cafe while you’re there. Beautiful spot for a date. ”

“There’s nothing more relaxing than floating on a river. The gentle moving current, the sun on your face and the cool water below have the uncanny ability to make your troubles disappear, one by one. It seems like nothing in the world can disturb your peace in those few hours.”
