Officially opened in March 2012, the Calgary Peace Bridge is the city’s most unique and artistic pedestrian and cycling bridge. The bridge is built across the Bow River and connects the new skyscrapers on its south bank with Crescent Heights on the north bank. The bridge has since received multiple design awards including being crowned one of the world's top ten public spaces in 2012 by the Designboom. There are an estimated 6,000 Calgarians using the bridge each day. The views of the city from the bridge are lovely, as you can see from the photos below. The bridge enhances the beauty of Calgary's downtown river corridor which can be best appreciated if you climb a hill on the north bank. It is a recommended destination for all first time visitors.
