First established in 1959, North Glenmore Park has since grown to a population of just under 2,500 residents with green spaces that occupy its’ east and a few of Calgary’s major roadways set along its’ immediate west. Glenmore Athletic Park, the Lakeview Golf Course, and the Earl Grey Golf Club are all located to the east of this community – these are all, of course, situated along the majestic Elbow River which inevitably leads into the greater Glenmore Reservoir. Crowchild Trail and Glenmore Trail are both to North Glenmore’s west which allows its’ residents the opportunity to travel up to the downtown core quite easily or to nearly any other neighborhood in the city. From these benefits and others, it’s not a startling thing to remark that North Glenmore may be Calgary’s best kept secret.
The public school students of North Glenmore are designated to attend the nearby Jennie Elliot elementary, Bishop Pinkham junior high, and Central Memorial senior high school while those that are in the Catholic school district attend St. James elementary and junior high, St. Michael junior high, and Bishop Carroll senior high school. The Central Memorial/Lord Shaughnessy senior high school here is also privileged enough to house the Juno Beach Academy of Canadian Studies, the National Sport Academy, and the School of Performing and Visual Arts at Central Memorial. Welcome additions to North Glenmore are also the Calgary Girls’ charter school and the Emily Follensbee school for severely disabled students.
These students also have the Mt. Royal University only a few minutes down the Glenmore Trail.
The majority of the businesses and shops set up here and in surrounding communities are geared more towards the youth of the high school and the university crowds.
There are however numerous opportunities to browse and shop further down the Crowchild Trail.
Calgary Transit has a few handfuls of stops that run right through the community along 54th avenue and 20th street. These take residents to wherever they may need to go in the city.
With all of the wilderness, the visible sunsets, and the beautiful views – it can make a resident feel like Calgary is a million miles away.
North Glenmore allows you the opportunity to enjoy these benefits and to still be close enough to the major roadways leading to the downtown core and beyond.
