East Village river walk moves to next phase

The Calgary Municipal Land Corporation has revealed the next phase of its river walk pathway development. The area between Eau Claire and St. Patrick's Island has been redeveloped with more attractions for pedestrians, cyclists and other pathway users.

On July 30, the pathway and plaza area hosted over a thousand people, several market and artist tents and live music. Other groups that attended were there to show the potential uses for the development. Local cycle enthusiasts came, as well as a boot-camp fitness group and a yoga studio. The area is capable of supporting multiple activities and has already seen large turnout for a Saturday morning yoga session.

Overall, the festivities demonstrated both the multi-use capabilities for the area and the community demand for gathering places in the East Village.

"It was a great opportunity, on a really nice summer day, to invite people into East Village and let them experience the River Walk and see the changes in the community and let them get a feel for the changes to come in the area" said Clare Nolan, Manager of Communications and Marketing for the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation.
