Community Description

go to top ^

Tuxedo Park is located in Calgary’s northeast.  It is one of Calgary’s older community’s, and was annexed by the city in 1910.  Tuxedo Park is located three kilometers north of the city center.  It is directly accessible via Centre Street.  Many of the community buildings, especially area churches and schools, reflect Calgary’s history. The first home built in the area, a three story farmhouse, still stands and has been declared a historic site. Much of the area’s development is single detached residential homes, some of which are being targeted for infill redevelopment. There is an elementary school and a junior high school in the area. Exit Shelter, a facility run by Woods Homes as a support for former street children, is also located in the area.

Tuxedo Park’s community centre is located in the midst of the area’s central park, which spans two city blocks. Throughout the park is scattered playground equipment as well as an ice rink.  The community association puts on a number of special events each year, including a popular Canada day celebration that includes music, a buffet, appearances by prominent politicians, crafts, and police cars and fire trucks. The community association also hosts an annual Oktobofest and Breakfast with Santa.
