Come on out and have some fun on the water followed by lunch in Bowness.
You'll never know who you'll meet and what new friend will come about.
We will be taking a 2 hour paddle boat ride around the historic Bowness Park. After wards, we will be going for a late lunch in Bowness to enjoy more company.
Please bring your camera and be prepared to possibly get wet (you may want to bring a change of clothes and shoes).
Bowness Park is located along the Bow River between Stoney Tr. and 85 St. N.W. A shallow lagoon runs along the along the park's southern edge, a favourite spot for paddle boating in the summer and ice skating in the winter. Bowness Park is highly used for picnicking and accessing the Bow River.
Bowness Park was built before the First World War by John Hextall, a local land developer. It was built in the town of Bowness as a weekend retreat for nearby Calgarians. The park once had a swimming pool, carousel and orthophonic device on the lagoon.
