The City of Calgary announced the reopening of the Glenmore Dam Pathway! During the past few years, construction for the Glenmore Dam has been happening in order to

  • Increase the lifespan of the dam
  • Increase our water supply resiliency to better manage low river flows in the winter and high river flows in the spring.
  • Improve recreational experience for pathway users

Calgarians can now enjoy a new, wider bridge deck across the dam along with the amazing views of Calgary. The pathway also connects to 27kms of pathways around the Reservoir & along the Elbow River.

Check out the Glenmore Dam Pathway (6420 14 St SW, Calgary, AB T2V) before Winter comes!
