Calgary looking to increase river access points to increase tourism, protect environment
from Calgary Sun
Following outcry and concern from boating groups, council has proposed a new river access strategy to ease boat launches on Calgary waterways. The strategy would see the number of approved river access spots — including boat launches, hand launches and wading pools — increase from nine to 34 by 2022. Coun. Shane Keating said that before the 2013 flood, Calgary had more than a dozen public river access sites, and the proposed strategy would see a return to pre-flood numbers while adding additional launches.
