Tucked in between John Laurie Boulevard to its north, Crowchild Trail to its south, Shaganappi Trail to its west, and Nose Hill Park to its east, Brentwood was first established as a Calgary community in 1960 and grown to mean so much more to its 6,000 residents. Conveniently located amongst a number of Calgary’s post-secondary institutions such as Rocky Mountain College, the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, and the University of Calgary, the community has a unique blend of young families, seniors, and students who frequently take part in the local events put on by these organizations. With the Nose Hill Park immediately northeast of Brentwood, one has Calgary’s pathway system at their front porch ready to be explored. Whether it’s green space or commercial shopping opportunities at Brentwood’s own Northland Village shopping center, a resident is never left with nothing to do in the neighborhood.

Public school students attend the local Captain John Palliser or Dr. E. W. Coffin elementary schools before moving on to complete their public education at Simon Fraser junior high and Sir Winston Churchill senior high school. Catholic school students enjoy the same close proximity to their institutions with students attending Mother Mary Greene elementary, St. Jean Brebeuf junior high, and St. Francis senior high school.

With John Laurie Boulevard and the Crowchild Trail both being major roadways, residents are afforded convenient transportation and for those that don’t own a vehicle, Calgary Transit has over two dozen stops located throughout the inner grid of Brentwood meaning that transportation is never more than a few minutes’ walk away. The community is also lucky to be served by the Brentwood LRT station.

Ideally situated for residents looking to get an interesting mix, Brentwood comes together as a unique blend of education, green space, and commercial opportunities.  A property in the neighborhood means a property for the future with several area redevelopment plans in place in surrounding communities and new construction on the horizon, one can see the opportunities afforded to them in Brentwood. Above all this, it’s the people. The people make Brentwood what it has become today and they are as welcoming a Calgarian as you will find. Come and find out what you’ve been missing. Brentwood is an investment in your future and in the future of the great city of Calgary.
