Descending from the Rocky Mountains and snaking toward the ocean, the section of Bow River provides habitat for a variety of wildlife, primarily rainbow and brown trout. For fly fishermen and fishing enthusiasts, the river provides ample opportunity for fishing. Boats are also used on the river; canoes and inflatable boats are popular choices. The Bow River pathway alongside both banks throughout the city is popular for cycling, hiking, and jogging.
