Distance: 8.5 km loop
Elevation Gain: negligible
Pace: relaxed
Terrain: mainly paved pathways and sidewalks

Come join me on one of my favourite night time walks, a scenic 8.5km loop that showcases the many colourful city lights in and around downtown. We'll start at Pearce Estates Park (next to the Fish Hatchery) and make our way west along the Bow River, through St Patrick's Island and finally the East Village before making our way back.

**There may be opportunity to grab a coffee or light snack in the East Village area so bring along a mask and a couple of bucks just in case. We'll pass a pizza place that sells slices for $2.50 if that interests anyone :).
