Very cool

I visited down town Calgary and wondered upon this beautiful attraction. If you are in the area, I recommend you stop by and check it out for yourself.

This bridge is a beauty - Calgary's prettiest for sure. And very handy for anybody trying to get around in the inner city. The lower deck is a 2 lane short cut from Riverfront Avenue to Memorial Drive - just watch your vehicle height, and pay attention to the traffic direction signs - there are lane reversals in place.

The Centre Street bridge in Calgary was over engineered at the time and has recently had renovations to make it ready for another century. The bridge still has iconic lions as decorations.

Centre Street Bridge has two levels of traffic. The lower deck is narrow and of limited height with an entrance and exit being confusing both to locals and visitors. Frequently motorists with larger vehicles get stuck. The upper level is normal to traffic and has better views. The lions are interesting.

When I see 'just a bridge' I am dismayed ... I see a beautiful, strong, arched piece of work crossing over the magnificent Bow River .. The Lions are from a bygone era ( we know they aren't the originals due to decay.. But the originals are somewhere in a building downtown being kept safe - we hope) Depending on... More

I used to walk across this bridge a lot back in the day but haven't in years. Was on it yesterday again. It serves it's purpose well as a bridge.

I love to cross this bridge and I have doing so in many ways walk, driving or biking. It is possible to see beautiful spots of the city of Calgary.

Did you know that the bridge attack scene in "Exit Wounds" (2001) was shot on the Centre Street Bridge in Calgary? When I lived in Bridgeland, I would walk across this bridge to downtown every morning. What a magnificent piece of work. Don't forget to check out the pictures.

The quickest way to China Town or thru downtown. Underbridge confusing for out of towners. Historic Calgary

The Centre Street bridge is a lovely walk down into Chinatown or an uphill climb. We parked at the top of the bridge to walk down to Chinatown to avoid parking problems in Chinatown.
