Calgary’s River Access Strategy Starts To Takes Shape.

New Signage is in place at West Baker Park, 10 Street NW, Glenmore /Graves Bridge and Sandy Beach.  The signage consists of a kiosk style of layout with a river map and safety information. Additional river user information is available on the city website at Calgary River Access

Bow River North and Bow River South Signage can be seen below.

West Baker Park and Shouldice will remain closed to the public until  the new boat ramps at Inglewood and Ogden Bridge are complete and Harvie Passage Low Flow Channel is open to the public in 2018.

A new hand launch has been installed at Douglasdale South. Portable toilets, benches & garbage bins have been installed at all designated river access points.

The engineering process to start construction on on the new boat ramp at Ogden Road / Refinery Park is underway with completion expected in 2017. Inglewood boat ramp will follow in 2019. All good news.
