Rosemont is a relatively small community located in the northwest quadrant of Calgary. The slopes of this neighbourhood allow for views of the city and the mountains. Although the lands which make up Rosemont were annexed in 1910, the community did not develop until 1958. Curvilinear streets and street names, rather than numbers, were used. Most of the housing in the area is single family dwellings. The close proximity of Confederation Park, Nose Hill Park and the pathway system provide recreational opportunities for the residents of this community.
Rosemont’s community association offers a variety of programs to residents. The computer access program, which works to ensure all Calgarians have access to the computers, was a hit among seniors and teens alike. The community centre now contains a six computer lab to ensure residents have internet access. Other community centre activities and user groups include Tai Chi, Brownies, a Moms and Tots program, a Girls Art Day Camp, and the Rocky Mountain Ramblers. The community also hosts special events such as movie nights, pub nights and seasonal parties. This year, they will also be hosting their first community garage sale. Rosemont also works to improve the community, and are currently working on two special projects: improving the condition of the Confederation Park Duck Pond and creating a memorial garden as a tribute to former alderman Eric Masgrave, a key figure in the park’s creation.
