Community Description

go to top ^

St. Andrews Heights is located in Calgary’s northwest, 4 km from downtown.  The St. Andrews area was annexed in 1910 but did not develop residentially until the 1950s.  Prior to this, the land was a prestigious golf course founded by British immigrants.  It was named after the famous St. Andrews golf course in Scotland.  The golf course operated from 1912 to 1927, hosting two provincial championships, until it closed as a public course due to financial difficulties.  The golf course continued to operate privately until the late 1940s, when the decision was made to begin residential development.

St. Andrews Heights is characterized by its curvilinear streets, which take advantage of the excellent views in the area and add to the community’s character.  The community is close to many of Calgary’s amenities, including Foothills Hospital, McMahon Stadium, Foothills Athletic Park, the University of Calgary and a number of malls and restaurants.

The St. Andrews Heights community association offers a number of programs, including a soccer program, a senior’s group, an art group, and fitness classes.  The community centre is also used by a number of other groups, notably the Bow Valley Calligraphy Guild.  The community association also acts as a voice for the community regarding the numerous development projects that take place around the community.  The community facilities are also excellent, with a large green space, tennis courts, a basketball court, a playground, a skating rink and one of the city’s best tobogganing hills.
