Calgary’s Pathways Top 1,000 Kilometres

The city of Calgary is known for its endless sunshine, friendly and dynamic people, and the Calgary Stampede.  But Alberta’s largest city is more than cowboys and big business.  The city recently completed “The Greenway,” a 138 kilometre (85 mile) cycling and walking pathway that connects 55 neighbourhoods and communities.  The Greenway also connects to Calgary’s existing pathways, creating a staggering cycling and walking network that is more than 1,000 kilometres (621 miles) long.  This is arguably the largest urban pathway network in the world.

Calgary is home to over 1 million people and is located in the foothills of the amazing Rocky Mountains, approximately 110 kilometres (68 miles) from Banff National Park.  It is one of Canada’s top energy sector and financial centres, primarily driven by Alberta’s oil and gas industry.  The city hosted the 1988 Winter Olympics and is contemplating a bid for the 2026 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
