The small residential community of Mayfair is located in the southwest area of Calgary. Originally established in 1957 and bounded by the Bel-Aire neighborhood, Elbow Drive, the Glenmore Trail, and the Glenmore Reservoir, Mayfair is a tight-knit community of less than 500 residents. The neighborhood is put together entirely of single-family detached homes and includes the Christopher Robin private school as well as the newer C. Robin senior high. Due to its’ close proximity to Heritage Park, the Glenmore Reservoir and pathway, and the Calgary Golf and Country Club, there are various recreational activities to partake in all only a few minutes away. If what you need is located elsewhere, Elbow Drive provides residents of Mayfair a direct route to the downtown area as well as acts as an excellent way to explore other parts of the city.
Chinook Park elementary, Elboya elementary and junior high, and the Henry Wise Wood senior high school serves the public school students within Mayfair. Meanwhile, the Catholic school students are assigned to attend the nearby St. Augustine elementary and junior high, as well as Bishop Grandin senior high school.
Mayfair residents are mainly in the higher-income bracket and they’re afforded much privilege in the form of the nature that surrounds the community. Other amenities in the area include the Rockyview General Hospital located across from the neighborhood and Mayfair also acts as the home for Mayfair Taxi, a family business that began in 1953 and now one of Calgary’s premier taxi services. Taking Glenmore Trail will lead you past a vast # of small businesses, restaurants, and shopping opportunities including the Chinook Centre, which is only a few blocks away from the Mayfair community.
Calgary Transit has a handful of stops near Mayfair’s eastern border of Elbow Drive affording residents without transportation to make their way to other parts of the city.
Mayfair’s charm is allowing its’ residents the privacy commonly associated with a gated neighborhood while still being located off an exit of a major city route to the downtown area. With its’ proximity to the Glenmore Reservoir as well as the hospital, properties in the area continue to gather value as the years pass by.
There’s no pretending in Mayfair. It really is a privilege, a dream, and much more.
