Calgary River Access

Bow River near Edworthy Park

The Bow and Elbow rivers are integral to our city and provide extensive opportunities to promote social, economic, and environmental well-being in Calgary.

Drift boats, canoes, kayaks, or rafts powered by human efforts are welcome on the Bow River. The Federal Government prohibits any motorized watercraft such as motorboards or seadoos within Calgary city limits.

River Access Sites

The River Access Map indicates current and future river access sites. While improvements on priority sites will be completed in 2017 and 2018, it is expected the bulk of the work will be completed after 2019 in the new budget cycle. Priority sites for funding include: West Baker Park, Sunnyside, Inglewood Bridge, Harvie Passage, Ogden Bridge, Graves Bridge, as well as placement of signage along the river.
