Langevin Bridge is a gorgeous LED light inspired bridge opened in 1910 and named after Sir Hector-Louis Langevin (one of the Fathers of the Canadian Confederation). In 2009, the City of Calgary set up the 5,600 programmable lights on the bridge for Christmas, as part of the East Village re-vitalization efforts. This LED project was built by Montreal based Lumenpulse and composed of 156 programmable light assemblies to fit with the RiverWalk project.
St. Patrick’s Bridge was the product of a design competition held in 2009 by the Calgary MLC. This new pedestrian bridge links Bridgeland with East Village over the Bow River. It provides wonderful connectivity to Inglewood, East Village, and Downtown Calgary. The goal of the design was to have as little structure as possible in the river channel to respect the context of the island. These stunning bridges are just one of the many examples that Bridgeland, or “The Bridge,” contains the perfect balance of urban excitement and day-to-day liveability.
