Community Description

go to top ^

Thorncliffe is located in north Calgary at the easterly base of Nose Hill Park and south of the community of Huntington Hills. The general land profile is a continuation of the lower and gentler portion of the Nose Hill bluff system, having a foothills character affording views in a number of locations. The form of development which has occurred since 1954 is predominantly single-family, interspersed with some duplex dwellings. Residents of Thorncliffe have access to Nose Hill Park and the pathway, which includes a route through the Nose Creek Valley.

The Thorncliffe – Greenview community association is extremely active. The facility contains a commercial catering kitchen, a lounge, meeting rooms, offices, racquetball courts, and a seniors centre. For community recreation, the centre also houses a 4 lane bowling alley, an outdoor hockey rink, a baseball diamond, a playground and a tobogganing hill. Numerous community sporting activities take place at the centre, including racquetball, volleyball, slo-pitch, figure skating, hockey, ringette, baseball and bowling. A number of groups make use of the facility as well, including the Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, Timeout for Parents and Tots, Tai Chi and fitness. Special activities such as dances, craft fairs, parties and wine and cheeses are also held at the centre. To raise money for all of these activities, weekly bingos are held at the centre. The local Men’s Booster Club and Women’s League are also instrumental in raising funds.
