Map Your Neighbourhood

Weigh in on the best (and worst) places in your neighbourhood!  Where could you spend the whole day?  What are the best places to walk, cycle, or enjoy nature?  Which places hold the most memories?

Active Neighbourhoods asked Bridgeland these questions and more at the 2014 Relocalization Fair.  120 community members placed 136 stickers on a map of Bridgeland to show locations that were significant to them.  Here’s what they had to say:

 

  • The Bow River bike/walk Pathways, the Bridgleland Community Centre, and Tom Hopkin’s Hill Park are centres or “hearts” of the community. These locations had the most stickers placed on them
  • The Bow River bike/walk pathways are by far Bridgeland residents’ favourite place to bike and walk around the neighbourhood. Residents also enjoy biking and walking in Tom Campbell’s Hill Park
  • The Best places to enjoy nature or bird watch in Bridgeland are the Bow River pathways and Tom Campbell’s Hill Park

Stay tuned for more information about the Bridgeland community and active transportation! We will be collecting more data at upcoming community events throughout the summer.
