Stephen Avenue Walk, Calgary Reviews - Write a Review

  • From California, was visiting friends in Calgary in summer. Had a day to myself so took the CTrain downtown. This pedestrian zone was one of my coolest Calgary discoveries. What a great idea in an urban center. Very impressive. First time I've personally seen something like this. Very progressive idea. It works too. Lots of shops and restaurants. I bought some items myself. Stuff wasn't overpriced. In fact, I really like my "Calgary" t-shirt with the cowboy hat design for only $9.44 out the door. An elevated walkway over the Walk connects the CORE shopping centre which is also fun to browse. All visitors need to check out the Stephen Avenue Walk. Easy CTrain access.

  • Stephen Avenue is a really trendy street in the heart of downtown Calgary. It is lined with cool shops, boutiques, restaurants and clubs. It is a busy pedestrian mall with towering skyscrapers hovering above its cobblestone street and historic buildings. The patios get pretty packed here, especially with the after work business crowd. Calgary is a big corporate city and this is one of the places you will find a lot of young snazzed-up business people chillin at lunch time and after work. It is super cool environment to shop and dine in the city.

  • Probably the best place in the city to hang out. There are lots of places to eat (both restaurant and a few carts). Lots sitting, and many open patios. Plus the artwork and sculptures are pretty cool.

  • I'd give it a ten if there was more things to do, it gets boring very quickly, hopefully the Mayor's idea of relaxing the rules will attract more businesses down town.

  • Gorgeous street to walk through, with decorative buildings. The tree sculptures are also nice to look at!
