Community Description

go to top ^

The northwest community of Edgemont is Calgary’s largest community with over 17000 residents.  It is located north of Dalhousie and bordered by John Laurie Boulevard in the south, Sarcee Trail in the west, Country Hills in the north and Shaganappi in the east.  The community is largely a northwest extension of Nose Hill.  It is edged by steep escarpments at the southeast end of the community.  Due to its elevation, Edgemont is exposed to more wind than the surrounding communities, but this elevation also provides exceptional views of Calgary and the mountains.  Edgemont offers many recreational opportunities to residents including tennis courts, skating rinks, playgrounds, pathways and numerous ravines.  There are both public and separate schools in the community.

The community association shares space with Edgemont Elementary school, allowing it to have access to the gym in the evenings.  The community center also contains a fireplace, hardwood floors popular for yoga and dance, a commercial kitchen and a preschool.  Some of the programs facilitated by the community association are the Edgemont soccer association, softball, basketball, grassroots hockey, yoga, seniors power walking, tutoring, and before and after school programs.  Scouts, Guides, Toastmasters, Kung Fu, gymnastics, and a teen drop in program also make use of the center.  The association, in partnership with neighboring communities, has arranged for the establishment of a local skate park during the month of July.  Edgemont offers a number of summer programs as well, including basketball camps, a teen workshop, and a summer program for children in partnership with Calgary Parks and Recreation.  This program offers games, sports, crafts, music, creative writing, drama, day camps, babysitter training, and bug science courses.
