This rainbow bridge by Riley Park has been taking over Instagram

The LRT bridge by Riley Park has gotten a facelift just in time for Calgary Pride, as an arching rainbow now sits over its walkway.

The public art is an Activate YYC project that saw the ground-facing arch painted six colours of the rainbow. Along with the cement, the stones directly underneath were given corresponding colour for a very satisfying effect.

On the trail leading up to the bridge, someone wrote in rainbow chalk an inspiring message.

“Let’s meet under
The rainbow because
Black lives matter
Womans right are human rights
No human is illegal
Science is real
Love is love
Everyone deserves to live with dignity
Kindness is everything”

While the new colours were only put up earlier this week, many Calgarians have discovered the new rainbow and have been eager to share it over social media.
