Getting Around Calgary on Foot
The downtown core is very walkable, with plenty of signage to guide you to attractions, restaurants, and public art.
The +15 corridors connect several hotels, attractions, shopping centers, and buildings to allow pedestrians to travel indoors throughout the city center. The City of Calgary provides updated information on the +15 system, including construction notices and maps. Sidewalks in Calgary are very wide, allowing pedestrians to enjoy a luxurious experience as they walk through the city.
During the winter months, be especially aware of black ice, which can cause you to slip.
