With a diverse mix of old and new neighbourhoods, Calgary’s northwest residents say they share a common identity
Ascend to the summit of Nose Hill Park on a clear, sunny day and you’ll have a spectacular vantage from which to survey the city. It’s just one of the many parks in the city’s northwest that Calgarians know and love.
As a quadrant, northwest Calgary is an area roughly bordered by Deerfoot Trail to the east, the Bow River to the south, Calgary’s city limits to the west, and Stoney Trail to the north.
The northwest is diverse, in both demographics and geography. Several new communities now exist farther north and west of Stoney Trail and one of city’s oldest neighbourhoods, Bowness, dates back to the turn of the 20th century.
