West Hillhurst: the community and people who live there

Posted by Kirby Cox on Thursday, March 2nd, 2017 at 3:32pm.

West Hillhurst is a vibrant, dynamic community located just North of the Bow River and Downtown Calgary. Located next to trendy Kensington Village, it is the perfect choice for those who want to live where they can work, shop and play!

The land that makes up the West Hillhurst community was originally owned by the Riley family, a prominent pioneer family. This eclectic community is comprised of a mixture of older homes built for soldiers returning from WWII, new infills, and condos & townhouses. Residents have easy access to SAIT, the Alberta College of Art and the University of Calgary as well as quick access to the river pathways.

With it's close proximity to the Bow River path system, West Hillhurst is the perfect choice for runners, cyclists and those who like to walk. World class recreation facilities are also available at the University of Calgary (Olympic Oval, climbing walls, gymnasiums, squash courts, etc.). Canada Olympic Park is a 5-minute drive to the West, offering downhill skiing, mountain biking, luge, bobsled and much more.
