Pathway and River Cleanup Now September 18-20

The annual Pathway and River Cleanup was rescheduled this year due to, er, well, you know. But it’s back on for September and rejigged as a three-day event from the 18th to the 20th. This is what we got from Parks Program Coordinator Hadi Fares in late July: 

“The City of Calgary is excited to announce that we are moving forward with the 53rd Pathway and River Cleanup! The Pathway and River Cleanup will be a three-day event, running September 18-20, coinciding with World Cleanup Day. Although the spirit of the cleanup is the same, it will look a little different this year.  You and your team can choose Friday, September 18th, Saturday, September 19th, or Sunday, September 20th to complete your cleanup. City staff will be available all three days to top up supplies, answer questions, and help with any cleanup requests.

From Walk of Doom to Magic Walk

By Sandra Neill, Director at Large, CHCA

The Crescent Heights Community Association (CHCA) is thrilled to announce that with funding from the City of Calgary’s Parking Reinvestment Fund, three artists will be collaborating on a mural on the sidewalk and retaining wall along Centre St from Samis Road to 7th Ave NE. 

In the summer of 2019, the CHCA had an engagement session with residents about this area and interviewed pedestrians.  This hilly climb up to Crescent Heights was described as a long and boring walk (perceived to take 15-20 minutes when it is about 7 minutes), loud and hectic with cars speeding by, claustrophobic (pedestrians and cyclists navigate around as this is the only sidewalk), and unsafe (there are no “eyes” on the street since there are no businesses or residences along here).  When asked what might change the perception of this space, residents overwhelmingly replied “colour, art, something to look at”.  Through this engagement, the vision for this space took on the moniker “Magic Walk,” and the existing space (as of Aug 2020) was referred to some as the “Walk of Doom.”
