Focus on: Mount Royal

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

Mount Royal is one of Calgary’s most wealthy neighbourhoods, and as such is home to some of the most stunning real estate in the city; in the mid-2000s, one family that owned three adjacent lots was profiled in the Calgary Herald for its plans to construct one massive home in the style of the Chateau Lake Louise.  The economic downturn in 2008 put a hold on those plans, but it still gives an idea of the imagination (and resources) with which property is approached here.

Located in the southwest, Mount Royal was originally called “American Hill” due to the large proportion of US-immigrants who chose to reside there. Just under 3200 people currently call Mount Royal home, served by the public schools Earl Grey Elementary and Mount Royal Junior High. The community is split into Lower Mount Royal, which is mostly comprised of condominiums and townhomes, and Upper Mount Royal, which is almost entirely single family homes; median income in Upper Mount Royal is nearly four times that of Lower Mount Royal.

With its close proximity to downtown and the bustling strip of 17th Avenue SW, amenities are plentiful in Mount Royal, with a vast selection of restaurants to choose from and a complete compliment of cultural opportunities. Additionally, Elbow Drive provides easy access to Chinook Mall and other nearby attractions. Residents may also access the Glencoe Club, a private sports and recreation facility serving Mount Royal and Elbow Park, founded in 1931.

Focus On: Palliser

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

The name Palliser is used in a few contexts in Alberta, thanks to the significance of explorer John Palliser’s efforts to map western Canada. One such namesake is Calgary’s nearly 50 year-old community of Palliser, in the city’s southwest.

There’s a focus on outdoor recreation opportunities in Palliser, located as it is along the edge of the Glenmore Reservoir and near the Weaselhead Flats: hiking, boating, and more are within easy reach of Palliser residents. Further, the Heritage Park historical village is in the same vicinity, with its renowned Sunday brunch (once frequented by Calgary Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff), rides for the kids, and ambience linked to our shared history. With Heritage Drive, Glenmore Drive. Crowchild Trail, and Macleod Drive all nearby, this community is an easy drive from nearly all Calgary has to offer.

Served by four elementary schools, five middle schools, and three high schools (including public, separate, and private options), Palliser has an abundance of options for the 400 or so school-age children in the neighbourhood. Its population has remained steady in recent years – growing only 0.3% from 2007-2011, compared with the city’s 7% growth overall – and so its a good place for people looking to put down roots and build relationships with neighbours.

Focus On: Woodbine

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

For this installment, let’s look at another wonderful community on the city’s edge, Woodbine. Bordering on the Tsuu T’ina First Nation in Calgary’s Southwest, Woodbine is a 33 year-old community 10,000 people strong, that’s become popular with higher income earners (median income is in the mid-$80,000s) and those appreciating quick access to mountain getaways.

The Woodcreek Community Association recently completed an addition to its popular community centre, making it even more versatile for the varied groups using the facility; Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, a Lions club, seniors groups, and the Bulldogs football club are just some taking advantage of the centre’s playing fields, tennis courts, skating rinks, halls, boardrooms, and other amenities.

Within Woodbine’s 3.5 square kilometres is also a karate studio, a dance studio, and a fitness centre, along with both public and separate elementary schools. Fish Creek Park and Glenmore Park are both in close proximity.

One attractive feature of Woodbine is it’s low crime rate compared to the rest of Calgary: in 2006 and 2007, the community recorded the lowest person and property crime rates in the city, according to the Calgary Police Service.

Focus On: North Glenmore Park

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

North Glenmore Park is one of Calgary’s older neighbourhoods, having been established in the city’s southwest in 1959. It is home to about 2400 people, in just over a square kilometre of area. The majority of residents are in the 45-54 age range, making a median income of about $65,000.

North Glenmore Park is both well-connected and well-serviced. With quick access to both Crowchild Trail and Glenmore Trail, commuting to nearly any part of the city is relatively easy. Residents have close access to both Chinook and Westhills shopping centres, Heritage Park, the Rockyview hospital, and Mount Royal University. Also a plus is the busy community centre run by the North Glenmore Park Community Association, housing a dance studio, gymnasium, offices, and a boardroom; some residents of the nearby community of Lakeview are also permitted to join North Glenmore’s community association and use the facilities.

The neighbourhood is served by a full array of schools, and counts about 22 percent of its population as being under the age of 19.
