Inglewood is Calgary’s oldest community, dating back to the late 1800s, located at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers. It is a community with a rich history and even today one can see vestiges of its past. The development of Inglewood’s industrial base, including Pat Burn’s meat packing plant and A.E. Cross’ Calgary Brewery attracted people in the early 1900s to the community. Inglewood is a residential community with close proximity to the downtown, the Bow River, the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, and the Calgary Zoo.
