Community Description

go to top ^

Situated along the Elbow River, the southwest community of Elbow Park is one of Calgary’s oldest communities and is located only 3 km from downtown. The community was annexed as part of Calgary in 1907 and developed after 1910. Many of the area’s original homes remain in good condition and many have been renovated maintaining their original character. Elbow Park offers easy access to a number of restaurant, shopping and entertainment venues and is also close to a number of recreational areas including River Park, Stanley Park and the city’s pathway system. There are two public schools in the area, one of which offers French immersion.

The Elbow Park Community Centre offers a creative playground, two hockey rinks, a pleasure skating rink, a baseball diamond, basketball courts and tennis courts. Many communities belong to the Elbow Park Minor Hockey Association, and these teams make use of Elbow Park’s rinks. The rinks are also used in conjunction with the Inter Community Grass Roots League which offers residents a low key chance to play hockey. The Glencoe Club administers the tennis courts and offers lessons and proshop services. Skating and art programs are offered for community children. The Elbow Park residents Association also serves as an advocate for community concerns, including those relating to traffic issues, development, and Elbow River environmental concerns.
