The Harvie Passage is a popular area of the Bow River among paddlers and rafters. It has been closed to recreational use since the 2013 flood and is set to re-open on June 27, 2018. The passage consists of a high water channel, for skilled paddlers and a low water channel for novice paddlers.
Calgarians can now enjoy:
- Increased safety and navigability
- Improved fish passage and habitat
- Improved on and off river recreational opportunities
- Aesthetic improvements
- New and diverse opportunities for recreational boating
Originally opened to the public in 2012, the Harvie Passage was designed and built to minimize the hazards posed by the existing Calgary Weir and create recreational opportunities for both novice and skilled paddlers.
