Community Description

go to top ^

Ramsay is located southeast of Calgary’s downtown core. This established community is located near the junction of the Bow and Elbow Rivers, surrounded by parks, and centrally located.  Ramsay is divided by Spiller road.  Much of the western section offers exceptional views of the mountains and downtown, and also contains of Ramsay Scotsman Hill. Scotsman Hill was thus named because it was a popular location for Calgary’s to watch the nearby Stampede without paying.  The eastern half of the community consists primarily of older homes and there is an industrial area in the most eastern corner of the community.  There is an elementary school in the area, as well as St. Anne’s High School for Grade 12 students.

Ramsay has recently undergone a great deal of infill development to replace older homes.  The result is a vibrant neighbourhood, which sports an eclectic variety of architectural styles.  The Ramsay community association has been active in ensuring that such development is consistent with their community vision.  The community association invites resident feedback, and held a contest that allowed residents to submit design ideas.  The winner, Mark Boutin, has won the prestigious Prix de Rome architectural category and his contributions are sure to allow Ramsay to continue its successful revitalization.  The Ramsay community association also contains a Beautification committee, which is currently painting vibrant murals in the area.  The neighbourhood is also working in cooperation with the city’s Forever Green tree planting program to fill the area with trees.  A children’s garden is also in the works.  In additions, Ramsay offers a number of special events for residents, including a “boot sale,” where residents sell used items in car trunks, a high tea, and an edible flower festival.
