Date Night – RiverWalk

Now that the weather is warming up, it’s a great time to spend the evening walking or biking along the designated pedestrian and cycle lanes that wind along the edge of the Bow and Elbow Rivers. The RiverWalk extends from Centre Street to Fort Calgary along the south side of the Bow River, and from the west bank of the Elbow River to Lindsey Park. There are plenty of great locations to have a picnic, and lots of benches to just sit back, relax, and enjoy the picturesque scenery. You can even head down beautiful terraced steps that lead right up to the riverbanks, or you can go on the glass fronted outlooks that jut out over the water. RiverWalk Plaza is a fun place to visit, as it hosts outdoor programming of all kinds, including markets, festivals, opera performances and so much more. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing evening, or for some fun and festivities, the RiverWalk is sure to make any date a great one!
