Community Description

North Glenmore park is located in Calgary’s southwest and is just north of Glenmore Park. It is well connected to Calgary’s main traffic routes via Crowchild Trail and Glenmore Trail.  The Glenmore Dam, constructed in 1929, is a popular site for residents to gather for picnics and recreational activities. The North Glenmore Park area has a long history. It was the site of a stone quarry in the early 1900s, and many of Calgary’s historical buildings were constructed with stone from this quarry.  North Glenmore Park was annexed in 1956 and residential development began there in 1957. The area is close to several of Calgary’s attractions such as Heritage Park, Weaselhead Park, a number of golf courses, Glenmore Athletic Park, Centennial Arena and Chinook Mall, as well as the Rockyview Hospital and Mount Royal College. There are both separate and public schools in the area, including Central Memorial High School.

North Glenmore Park is home to a very active community association.  Its community centre is located along the city’s pathway system and attracts visitors from all over the city as well as area residents.  The centre contains a music program room, a popular dance studio, a gym, a lounge, a boardroom and a number of offices.  The dance studio is used for a number of classes, including Irish Dance, Ukrainian Dance, Fencing, Gymnastics, Belly Dance, Pilates, Yoga and musical theater training for children.   Other activities that make use the facilities include  karate classes, Dutch Canadian Choir, Calgary Sport & Social Club, and two separate churches, as well as the Canadian Association of Retired Persons, and Toastmasters.  The gym is also used for field hockey and volleyball. North Glenmore Park is continuously adding to the programs they offer, and hope to introduce computer workshops targeting kids and seniors. With such a wide range of programs, the North Glenmore Park offers something for all age groups.
