This just in from the City of Calgary - The Sandy Beach pedestrian bridge is re-opening on November 23, 2014.
United in our efforts to rebuild after the flood of 2013, the City of Calgary has replaced the three pedestrian bridges damaged beyond repair. Sandy Beach Bridge is the first to re-open. Come celebrate the opening of the newly rebuilt Sandy Beach Bridge and be one of the first to cross.
Ceremonial opening of the bridge will feature a First Nations Blessing and speeches by Mayor Nenshi and Councillor Pincott. Enjoy free hot chocolate, coffee and entertainment.
We encourage those to walk, jog or bike to the event. Public parking will be very limited. Click here for full event details and construction photos.
