Visit Spirit Square in the Town of Golden where the Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge creates a distinct presence. At the entrance gate pillars there is an immediately endearing mosaic of ceramic plaques created by school children as their important, perpetual contribution to this community project (circa 2009).
The Town of Golden has a long-range plan to redevelop the area between the historic downtown and the Kicking Horse River. The vision includes vibrant year-round public gathering spaces, new private and public sector mixed-use development and improved connections to the commercial core for pedestrians and cyclists. With the support of senior government funding, the Town developed Spirit Square as the first phase in transforming this functional area into a riverfront showpiece for community events and gatherings.
