Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to fully walk the whole boardwalk but the part I did was very serene. When we return to Canmore, I hope to make time to enjoy this beautiful nature walk right in the middle of Canmore.

In fact, now that the Elevation Place rec centre has become quite the thing, Policeman's Creek Boardwalk makes for a great stop when you walk (and you can) between that one and downtown. The boardwalk is ideal, making this a true all-season walking area. On...More

We love taking the boardwalk whenever we are in Canmore. Beautiful views and very serene makes for a great morning or afternoon activity through the town.

This is great for anyone with walking difficulties as it fairly level. Benches along the way for a rest and right in the Town of Canmore.

The boardwalk in town is a nice place to go for a walk, you might even see some wildlife. A hike it isn't, but it's pleasant enough that you out to give it a go.

The walking/biking trails in town are well used by locals and visitors alike. Pay attentionfor bikes and keep your eyes peeled for wildlife; we saw a female elk and boy was she big.

Nice, easy walk if you want a casual stroll but don't expect this to compare with many of the other amazing sights you'll find in Canmore or Banff. The nice boardwalk around the creek will easily accommodate anyone who wants to walk on it. Seems...More
