Community Description

go to top ^

The community of Abbeydale is located in Calgary’s northeast. It is bordered on the South by the Canadian National Railway, on the West by 68th St. NE and on the North by the Trans Canada Highway. The community was under the jurisdiction of the Municipal District of Rockyview until it was annexed by the city in 1976. The community has a large child and youth population and contains both a public and separate school. The neighbourhood is primarily residential, with its principal commercial attraction being a simple strip mall. Downtown can be accessed by either Memorial Drive or 16th Avenue.

In response to the community’s demographics, the programs offered by Abbeydale’s community association are primarily youth oriented. The community center facilitates an out of school care program, numerous sports programs, Jelly Bean Dances and Scouts.  They also boast an adult darts league. The centre also offers plenty of events for the entire family, and the centre’s pool tables, dart boards and outdoor skating rink provide an excellent opportunity for families to relax in a pleasant atmosphere. Abbeydale offers activities for adults as well, with each Friday being open pub night featuring karaoke, crib tournaments or the occasional lobster dinner. Clearly, Abbeydale seeks to provide programs that match the interests of all of the community’s diverse population.
