Community Description

go to top ^

Triwood is located at the base of Nose Hill between 14 Street N.W. and the community of Brentwood. The gently sloping topography of Triwood provides for views of the city at a number of locations. This community became part of Calgary during the 1910 annexation. Development of Triwood occurred around 1959 with single family detached housing forming the predominant land use. There is a significant amount of recreation space found within Triwood. The two larges areas of open space are Confederation Park and the City-owned Confederation Park Golf Course. There is also excellent access to the pathway and the L.R.T. system. There are both public and separate schools in the area.

The Triwood community association has the distinction of initiating many Calgary “firsts”. Triwood was the first community to build an arena, it was instrumental in bringing the sport of Ringette to Calgary, and it is home to the city’s first and only seniors slo pitch team. Ringette remains a big draw at eh community centre. The indoor and outdoor ice rinks are also used for hockey and figure skating and for lacrosse in the summer. The ball diamond is well maintained by the seniors’ slo-pitch team. The community centre is also home to Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, dog training, Thursday bingos, Seniors Tai Chi, preschool, and before and after school programs. The city also often puts on daycamps and teen drop in programs. Special events, such as a recent dinner theater series, are also common. The community association is also active in protecting nearby Nose Hill and is a member of the  Nose Hill Park Management Advisory Committee.
