The community of Dalhousie is located in Calgary’s northwest. It is bordered by John Laurie Boulevard in the North, Shaganappi Trail in the East, Crowchild Trail in the South and Sarcee Trail in the West. Dalhousie is south of Nose Hill Park, to which residents have easy access through the city’s pathway system. The Dalhousie area was annexed by the city in 1961 and developed in 1967. It is close to regional shopping centres as well as the University of Calgary and SAIT. There are both public and separate schools in the area.

Dalhousie is home to an extremely active community centre. For the preschool set, the centre houses a playgroup cooperative, a playschool, a kindergarten and a Kindermusik program. For older children, the centre has regular girl guides and boy scout meetings, as well as offering volleyball, soccer (indoor and outdoor), karate, dancing, fencing, kung fu, Kumon math, babysitting courses, skiing and snowboarding instruction, and a youth group. For adults, the centre offers parent effectiveness courses, folk art, keyboarding, country dancing tai chi, skiing, snowboarding and yoga instruction. Along with these numerous classes, the centre also hosts a number of special events each year. The popular Diner’s Club hosts a number of themed dinners, and there is an annual Seniors Christmas tea and social, Winterfest Celebration, Stampede breakfast, Lobsterfest, craft fairs, art sales and used toy and clothes sale. With such a diversity of programs, Dalhousie truly offers something for everyone.
