活動內容

We will meet in the backyard for a new view of Bowness Park, a backyard fire and an assortment of drinks and snacks. I will talk about the history of the park, its geography and some of the quirky restrictive covenants still in existence before moving the conversation to art and the two large murals I have framed to the outside of a building on Main Street Bowness.

(Seasonal due to water levels) Afterwards, we’ll walk down to the dock (neighboured by an occupied beaver lodge) and put our life jackets on. I’ll present on the process of creating the mural before getting into the paddle boat to explore the lagoon for about an hour. Following this, an opportunity to purchase drinks and snacks will be available at Seasons Cafe.

We will climb back up the hill, walk west past the John Hextall historic house and to the park to the Douglas Fir Trail. At the 15 minute mark up the trail, we'll circle back to walk along the edge of the Bow River where I’ll share stories and photos of the 2013 flood and the devastation it caused. Also included will be mention of the wildlife entering the community and the unusual encounters this creates. We will exit the park at 85th Street and 48th Ave (east end of Bowness Park) with views of Winsport (Canada Olympic Park) and the popular diner, Angels Drive-In. Here, we can admire the retro ambiance inside and have another opportunity to order food

I am a born and raised Calgarian, third generation graphic designer/artist and ex-professional snowboarder. My wife and I own property backing onto the southeast edge of Bowness Park where we have easy access to the lagoon, incredible pathways, neighbouring parks and a fascinating history of the community and the historic laws of the property.

In 2018, two murals I designed of Bowness Park were framed to the outside of a building on Main Street Bowness. I have also won two people’s choice awards for art at the Wapiti Music Festival in Fernie BC.

As a videographer and editor, I have years of experience interviewing and working with City of Calgary managers, engineers, biologists, artists, historians and First Nations consultants on a range of projects, which directly impacts my knowledge for this tour.

This was an incredibly unique and intimate experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the hosts' company and they made us feel more like family than customers. There is a general outline for this experience, but it felt like we got one that was kind of customized to us. We highly recommend this experience if you are looking for a fun and interesting way to spend an afternoon/evening!

This was an awesome experience with a super friendly host. It was only me on the tour so Brad always asked what I would like to do and would adapt to my wishes as well. His suggestions were great and I've had a lovely afternoon exploring a neighbourhood of Calgary I'd most likely wouldn't have ended up otherwise. We went paddle boarding and for a little walk. I can totally recommend to go spend the afternoon with Brad, you won't regret it :)

Brad was a great host. Upon my arrival, he already set up a picnic table beside the bond fire in his backyard with food and drinks available. Since I was the only guest that is female, Brad’s wife Shawna was the one to accompany me to paddle the boat and hike a primeval forest that’s only known to locals. It was very interesting for me to learn about the history of Bowness Park and about the 2013 flooding and its impact on the community’s lives and environmental protection measures since then. Overall it was a memorable experience that money can’t buy. Highly recommended!

更多建議

Parking at Bowness Park in the summer can sometimes be overwhelmingly busy. If possible, we can accommodate for this in our driveway, but not always. If you are less mobile, alternative arrangements can be made for accessing the paddle boat using the public entrance to the park.
