Urban landscapes: the colourful way over the river
THE PEACE BRIDGE AND BOW RIVER, CALGARY, ALBERTA
This remarkable pedestrian and cyclist bridge, completed in 2012 at a cost of $25 million, is still controversial to some residents because of its astronomical cost.
That said, the Santiago Calatrava creation is one of the most heavily used pedestrian bridges in the city. Here’s another view that highlights the fantastical design: https://wp.me/p2ccTX-5J.
I visited this viewpoint on a sunny afternoon and appreciated the colour mix and the reflection in the river. My timing was perfect; I visited again a week later and found the river entirely frozen over.
