NileGuide Expert Says:
This is one of the best parts of Calgary. There are many areas of the city pathway that make you forget you are in the center of a big city. If you're walking, start at Eau Claire market, cross the walking bridge into Princes Island park and enjoy all the open space. If you're running or biking, there are signs all over that let you know the distance from one landmark to the next. Bring bread to feed the many Canadian geese that hang out along the pathways, or to throw into the river and watch the geese fight for it. Avoid the area East of Eau Claire market, up until the 4th St. bridge, as this is a popular spot for homeless people and junkies.
