Prince’s Island Park

We continued walking along the north bank of the Bow River until we reach the next footbridge from where we had a great view of the skyline of downtown Calgary. The bridge connects the north bank with the small island in the middle of the Bow River, called Prince’s Island, named after Peter Anthony Prince, founder of the Eau Claire Lumber Mill. The whole of the island is an urban park, simply called Prince’s Island Park, which was obviously very popular on the sunny Sunday we were there. The land was donated to the city in 1947 by the Prince family. Among the skyscrapers in the background are some of the towers I showed earlier, like The Bow (236 metres) and Brookfield Place (247 metres).
