Community - West Hillhurst


West Hillhurst is a northwest community located in Calgary’s inner city, beside the community of Hillhurst/Sunnyside on the north bank of the Bow River. Real estate in West Hillhurst has always been desired as older homes on 50’ lots continue to give way to new construction of high quality attached and detached homes. This creates an eclectic mix of new luxury homes and original character homes.


The community’s close proximity to Downtown gives residents easy access, and a footbridge across Memorial Drive connects residents to miles of pathways and many locals either walk or bike to work.


The community is located near to McMahon Stadium, SAIT, the Alberta College of Art and Design, as well as the University of Calgary. There are public and separate schools in West Hillhurst and the area houses an excellent outdoor pool (Bowview Pool). The West Hillhurst Community Association offers several independent programs for all ages, a fitness centre, squash, and tennis courts. The indoor skating arena is also popular, and is used by amateur sports teams, the Canskate youth skating program, senior skate, and public skating.
