Community Description

go to top ^

Highland Park is located in Calgary’s northwest, and got its name from the area’s high elevation.  The area was annexed in 1910 but was not substantially developed until 1946.  There are significant commercial and industrial uses within the area.  Highland Park enjoys direct access to downtown via Centre Street and Edmonton Trail and has excellent access to regional bike pathways, Confederation Park and Nose Hill Park.  There is a public elementary school in the area, Buchanan Elementary, as well as James Fowler High School.

The Highland Park community centre is popular among many groups, including round dancers, square dancers, ballroom dancers, karate classes, various church groups and seniors groups, all of whom make use of the facilities.  By combining membership with the neighboring communities of Mount Pleasant and Tuxedo Highland Park is able to offer a diversity of programs to residents. Highland Park also hosts a number of special events each year, such as the Stampede barbeque and craft fairs.  The community association also acts as an advocate for residents on a variety of issues.  For example, the community association was recently successful in fighting to keep the local school open.
