Downtown West enjoys a close connection with neighbouring Kensington, and with Stephen Avenue Walk in the Core.  This summer, check out all the patios along Kensington Rd NW between 14 St and 10 St NW, and on 10 St NW from Memorial Drive up to 3rd Ave NW and all the patios on Stephen Avenue Walk: five blocks of Calgary's prime patio territory!  (Lists courtesy of Avenue Calgary)

Rafting the Bow River

It’s a local summertime favourite: lounging in an inflatable raft while floating down the Bow River, admiring the view of the approaching downtown skyline. Planning to raft the Bow this summer? You remembered the life jackets, but did you remember your car keys, an extra paddle, and good shoes?  Here’s how to stay safe!

Lazy Day Raft Rentals lets you experience Calgary’s rivers at an affordable price. They're located at The Calgary Curling Club on Memorial Drive and have plenty of weekend parking.  You leave one vehicle at your exit point, and drive the other to your entrance point - or ask about their shuttle service.

The Paddle Station is comprised of two starting points along the Bow River located at Shouldice Park and Prince's Island Park. They have a shuttle that takes you to your starting location to start your ride; shuttle pick-up locations are at St. Patrick's Park and Prince's Island Park.
