The community of Cambrian Heights is located in Calgary’s northwest at the base of Nose Hill east of 14th Street NW. The area was annexed by the city in 1910 but was not substantially developed until 1957. Due to the rolling topography, the area offers picturesque vies. There is an abundance of recreational space in the area, including Nose Hill Park and Confederation Park. Confederation Park is the site of many soccer games, with both Cambrian Heights and visiting communities taking part. Downtown is easily accessible via 10th Street. There are both public and separate schools in the area.
Cambrian Heights community association acts as the mouthpiece for the community. They work to ensure that developments do not disrupt the neighbourhood tranquility. In addition to the numerous fields in the area, the community also maintains a skating rink. The community centre is used by groups such as the Boy Scouts, the Seniors Club, and square dancing groups. The McKnight Sports council, who facilitates the soccer, hockey and baseball games played in the area, is also based in the community centre.
