Ride Your Bike to Work
West Hillhurst Park and Broadview Park are the two major green spaces in the area, though you’re not too far from the paths along the Bow River. A footbridge leads over Memorial Drive, connecting to a path that leads to the Peace Bridge and into downtown Calgary. There is an outdoor pool and some tennis courts in the community, as well as a skating rink.
On 19th Street NW you’ll find a variety of boutique shops and restaurants, though if you need to do a larger shopping trip you should head to North Hill Centre.
West Hillhurst features the most active seniors group in the city – the Go Getters. The community association also hosts Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, martial arts, and squash programs.
Schools serving the area include Ecole Madeleine D’Houete Bilingual Junior High, and Louise Dean School.
While Crowchild Trail and Memorial Drive are the two major routes you’ll want to pay attention to, Crowchild Trail in particular gets backed up around rush hour, so you might be better off trying your luck on 14th Street NW. Sunalta C-train Station is just on the other side of the river, and the SAIT / ACAD / Jubilee Station is also close by. The #1 Bowness – Forest Lawn and the #9 Varsity Acres/Bridgeland bus lines serve the community.
Expect to find some beautiful older homes in this community. Many of the homes were erected as Victory Homes – houses dedicated to the soldiers returning from the war. Some of these homes (with renovations) still stand today.
Life in West Hillhurst is a life of dining at great restaurants in Kensington, cycling to the downtown office, and enjoying views of the river. You won’t have as much space here, but you’ll be close to all of the amenities you could want. Even the University of Calgary is only a short drive away.
