Just a skipping stone away from East Village, across the George C. King Bridge (formerly St. Patrick's Bridge), St. Patrick’s Island opened in 2015, offering East Village residents and all Calgarians a beautifully revitalized 31-acre backyard. Nature lovers, families and urban explorers alike can revel in the natural beauty that has been restored through mindful renewal and a biophilia master plan – a landscape design approach that nurtures the bond between people and nature.
The public spaces of East Village, from the two kilometres of RiverWalk™ to urban parks and heritage buildings, are an invitation to explore every corner of our urban village. Bridges and pathways connect EV to other Calgary neighbourhoods in world-class style, the various innovative parks are places to relax in the urban rush, and the carefully-restored historic buildings are a reminder of EV's roots as Calgary's first neighbourhood.
