Each year The City of Calgary constructs new regional pathway links to connect existing sections of Calgary’s pathway network. For 2015-2017, our main focus is to identify and complete sections of the Trans Canada Trail within Calgary city limits. These connections will include pathways in the northwest from Baker Park to Haskayne Legacy Park and in the northeast from West Nose Creek Park north to city limits.
We will complete additional pathway links as resources allow.
85 Street N.W.
A new section of asphalt pathway along 85 Street N.W., north of 112 Avenue was installed to provide access to/from the Calgary Remand Center and the Calgary Young Offenders Center.
Communities of Evanston and Hidden Valley
In the fall of 2015, work will begin on a new, three metre wide, 1.6 km missing pathway link as part of Calgary’s highly valued regional pathway system. The new connection will extend from Hidden Creek Drive to Evansmeade Circle, crossing under Stoney Trail. It will connect the northwest communities of Hidden Valley and Evanston. Work is weather dependant and may continue into 2016.
Part of this work includes a pedestrian bridge replacement along the Panorama Road alignment, crossing Nose Creek. The original bridge was built many decades ago and has now reached the end of its lifecycle. Once complete, the new bridge will be long-lasting, flood resilient, and will minimize adverse impacts on the nearby sensitive natural environment. The new pedestrian bridge is being constructed jointly by Qualico Homes and Hopewell Communities.
Glenmore Reservoir Regional Pathway Project
The City of Calgary is pleased to announce a significant addition to the city’s extensive pathways and bikeways network with a new pathway link along Glenmore Reservoir. The new pathway link will strengthen the connection of a continuous public pathway around Glenmore Reservoir, providing spectacular views and recreational amenities to all Calgarians.
This project fulfills a long-term vision identified in both Calgary’s Urban Park Master Plan and the Open Space Plan. According to recent citizen surveys, the City’s pathways are used by 83 percent of Calgarians for recreation and transportation. Citizens report high satisfaction with pathways and strong support for a well-connected pathway system.
The new pathway will include a three-metre wide asphalt pathway along the crest of the Glenmore Reservoir, connecting the existing pathway network in North Glenmore Park with the pathway network along the Glenmore Trail Causeway. Planning and design for this new pathway link will begin this year. Construction of the new regional pathway link is expected to begin in 2017.

Work is ongoing to construct a north/south missing pathway link between the new pedestrian overpass at Shaganappi Trail N.W. and the entrance to the shopping centre on the northwest side of Shaganappi Trail.
Installation of a local pathway missing link leading to and from a future playground
