Prince’s Island Park

Prince’s Island Park is a little island in the middle of the Bow River just north of downtown Calgary.

There are 3 pedestrian bridges that link the island to the Bow River’s south bank and one pedestrian bridge connects to the north bank. My Prince’s Island trip started on the south side of the Centre Street bridge, which reminded me of Vancouver’s Lions Gate Bridge, but smaller.

I didn’t cross the bridge. I stayed on the south side. I walked through Shen Lok Park to access the Bow River Pathway. Two more white lions.

Sometimes it is fun to be a helicopter tourist without leaving your chair :-).

I’m liking Panoramio more and more. It is really neat to be able to see other people’s pictures when looking at places in Google Maps (Earth view). Prince’s Island Park on Google Maps
