Community Description

go to top ^

Forest Heights is an inner city community located in Calgary’s southeast.  It is bounded by Marlborough in the north, Penbrooke Meadows in the east, Forest Lawn and Erin Woods in the south and Albert Park/Radisson Heights in the west.  Because of the rolling landscape and elevation, Forest Heights offers good views of Calgary and the Rocky mountains. Development of the area began in 1959 and it was annexed by the city in 1961. Forest Heights offers direct access to downtown via 17th Avenue and Memorial Drive. There is also good access to the pathways and regional parks from the area.  Shopping and leisure centers can also be found nearby.  There are both public and separate schools in the area.

Forest Heights is one of Calgary’s most multicultural communities, so one of the challenges of its community association is to appeal to such a diverse group of people.  The community offers jellybean dances, and hockey, and the facility is also used by a 50 plus club. Weekly bingos are also held. The community has a popular skating rink and baseball diamonds, and plans to add a horseshoe pit, new barbeques, a new skate shack, change room, concession and garage area.  In addition to regular programs, each year the community hosts a Stampede breakfast.
