Caught between 64th Avenue to the north, Deerfoot Trail to the east, McKnight Boulevard to the south, and 14th Street to the west, Greenview was first established in 1991 when it split from the Thorncliffe/Greenview neighborhood. It has since gone on to be the home for nearly 2,000 Calgarians with many eligible properties for those looking. The community is found between a number of unique uses. It is southwest of the Calgary International Airport while a substantial proportion of the land in Greenview is occupied for industrial use as well as having the Canadian Pacific Railway line run through it. The properties themselves are predominantly single-family though are sometimes interspersed with duplex dwellings depending on a few streets.
Depending on where students are situated relative to McKnight Boulevard, this dictates to what schools they are to attend. Those in the north attend Thorncliffe elementary, Sir John A. Macdonald junior high, and John G. Diefenbaker senior high school while those in the south of McKnight Boulevard attend Buchanan elementary, Georges P. Vanier junior high, and James Fowler senior high school. Those in the Catholic school system face a similar predicament. Those north of McKnight attend Corpus Christi elementary, St. Helena junior high, and Notre Dame senior high school. Those in the south attend Our Lady of the Evergreens elementary, St. Stephen junior high, and Bishop O’Byrne senior high school.
The Thorncliffe/Greenview community association serves both communities as well as Upper North Haven in the west. Offering many unique opportunities for the whole family to enjoy such as a 4-lane bowling alley, outdoor hockey rink, a commercial kitchen, lounge, meeting rooms, offices, a seniors centre, and weekly bingos, the community centre is an integral part of the neighborhood.
For those looking to make the occasional escape to the downtown area, Centre Street is a straight route from Greenview to the busiest areas of Calgary. Deerfoot Trail also acts as an alternate route to access other parts of Calgary within a matter of minutes. Nose Hill Park is rather close as well and provides residents with access to Calgary’s pathway system. For those without transportation, Calgary Transit has numerous stops nearby to accommodate those who wish to travel on foot.
The natural splendor of Greenview makes for a haven that many of its residents greatly value as being near enough to get to the downtown core while being far away enough to enjoy a sense of community. With the spectacular system of trails that make for an excellent venue for a walk in Nose Hill Park, Greenview delivers on its’ name. Nestled into the northern part of city, Greenview is a welcoming to those who love the outdoors. Come and enjoy Greenview today to find one of the more relaxing areas of the city.
