RiverWalk is the true soul of the Rivers District, embracing the Bow River and highlighting its rich history. The wide promenade and cycling pathway is a significant component of the overall redevelopment of East Village.
When completed, RiverWalk will follow the banks of the Bow and Elbow Rivers for four kilometres, linking neighbourhoods from Chinatown to East Village to Inglewood to Stampede Park. RiverWalk is designed as both a journey and a destination. The pathway will be a key connector and commuter route for both pedestrians and cyclists. With its outdoor art installations, extensive landscaping, washrooms, lighting and outdoor furniture, RiverWalk will also be a sought-after recreational destination – a place where Calgarians can reconnect with the river, and literally dip their toes into the Bow.
