Community Description

go to top ^

The community of Westgate is located on the bluffs of southwest Calgary. The area was annexed in 1956 and development began in 1957. Westgate offers a number of recreational opportunities to residents, with Glendale Meadows and Edworthy Park being located nearby. In addition, the eastern edge of the community is a pathway. The community also offers easy access to Calgary’s downtown, as it is located between two major routes, 17th Avenue and Bow Trail. There are also three schools, both public and separate, located in the area.

Westgate community association has ample green space, and also has an excellent relationship with neighbouring Rosscarrok community. The two regularly use each others fields for sporting events.  The community has a paved outdoor skating rink as well as a playground. The community centre houses a variety of activities, such as Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, an exercise class, a church group, and bridge teams. Outside, t-ball, soccer and teen pick up baseball are popular. The community association is also affiliated with Tri-West Soccer and Trails West hockey. Westgate also sponsors a number of special events, including June sports day, a Christmas craft sale and a Winter festival.
