We will meet in Bowness Park by the new pavilion by the lagoon.

The plan is to walk east to approx 78 St NW and cross bridges to the north side of the river, stop by the retention ponds, then head west to Baker Park, then cross under the Stoney Trail Bridge, then return through Bowness Park to the pavilion. The route is approx. 8 km and should take about 3 hours.
