Community Description

go to top ^

Huntington Hills is located in Calgary’s northwest, at the base of Nose Hill between Beddington Heights and Thorncliffe. The area was annexed in 1961, and substantial development began to occur in 1967. There has been some commercial development in the area as well, giving residents a number of shopping options. Due to its elevation, the area offers excellent views of the city and the Rocky Mountains. It offers a number of recreational opportunities to residents due to its close proximity to Nose Hill Park, Nose Creek Valley and a local golf course. It is also connected to the city’s pathway system.  There are several schools in the area in including John Diefenbaker High School.

The Huntington Hills community association is based out of the Huntington Hills Sportsplex. This facility contains a curling rink, a skating rink, meeting rooms, a preschool, and the North Central community resource centre. Activities offered in the center include curling, figure skating, hockey, basketball, karate, floor hockey, gymnastics, Tai Chi, yoga and exercise classes. The North Central Community Resource Center offers support to residents in the form of parent workshops, single parent support, moms and tots groups and an ECS program. The Pioneers program for seniors also uses the facility, meeting twice weekly to organize a variety of activities such as potlucks. The community also holds a number of special events each year such as craft fairs, a Stampede Breakfast, monthly local musician performances, and silent auctions. Money for programming is raised in part by regular casinos.
