Community Description

go to top ^

Mount Pleasant is located in Calgary’s northwest.  Annexed in 1910, development began in 1912, making Mount Pleasant one of Calgary’s older communities.  Confederation Park runs through the northwest portion of the community, offering access to recreational opportunities.  The area also offers convenient access to downtown, which is only 4 km. away, via 10th Street.  There are both public and separate schools in the area.

The community hall, the Sportsplex and the community swimming pool are all located in the same area, forming a triangle around a popular playground. The Sportsplex offers figure skating, minor and adult hockey, pleasure skating, and floor hockey. The pool offers lessons, as well as open swim time and private rentals in the summer. The community hall is used by a parent and tot playgroup, a before and after school program, the Girl Guides, fitness and yoga classes, and a dance group, among other activities. In addition, the community hall also houses a kitchen for catered events, and features a projector and other facilities. Mount Pleasant also hosts numerous special events, such as a Stampede breakfast at the pool, and Day in the Park – our community summer festival in which we celebrate sunshine, good food, music, and neighbours of all ages unite. Other popular community events include: movie nights, weekly Friday night campfires, wine tastings, Easter and Christmas events, a community garage sale, and more.  The community is currently also in the process of establishing a vibrant community garden, on the grounds of the North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre.
