RiverWalk Pathway

RiverWalk is an essential component to the multi-year rejuvenation of Calgary’s East Village. Dedicated pedestrian and cycle lanes wind their way along the edge of the Bow and Elbow rivers, dotted by restful benches nestled among naturalized vegetation.

Cygnus designed and oversaw delivery for all wayfinding and placemaking elements. The result is a network of information panels, pylons and area maps that help users connect intuitively to over 700km of urban pathways.
