Calgary is known as the City of Trails and Highways.

All of the paths are used for recreational purposes. The kilometers of paths are well posted, cleared of snow and ice in the winter. Locals praise the pathways as "wonderful on all levels" and can "literally travel the entire city on it". Walk to the Eau Claire Market on a pleasant path along the Bow River and the lovely Prince's Island Park. The Calgary Folk Festival happens in July at Prince's Island. And of course, if you are in town during the last week of July or early August, the largest rodeo in the world, nicknamed as the 'Greatest Show on Earth' will be happening.
