Inglewood isn’t just one of Calgary’s favourite neighbourhoods, it was also named Canada’s greatest neighbourhood of 2014 by the Canadian Institute of Planners. Inglewood is also Calgary’s first established neighbourhood, developed in 1875 adjacent to Fort Calgary before being named “Inglewood” in 1911. Nestled amongst pockets of green space and repurposed industrial buildings, Inglewood is full of history. Situated just minutes from downtown along the Bow river with convenient access to major roads and highways. Well-supported by the city’s extensive pathways and efficient public transit system, commutes will be a breeze.
Inglewood is home to lush green space such as the bird sanctuary and historical Fort Calgary. Steps from your doorstep the Bow river and its pathway network offers quick access to a wonderful and unexpected breath of fresh air in an urban neighbourhood.
While the residential aspect of this area has been alive for decades, it is the culture that has really flourished in recent years.The quaint main street of 9th avenue is lined with unique retail, art galleries, boutique restaurants, and specialty grocers. These local and independent businesses have embraced the “Shop local, shop small” mantra which is wholeheartedly supported by local residents.

The arts and culture scene is rich with local artists and the community plays host to several street festivals and events throughout the year such as The Calgary International Fringe Festival. During the holiday season, retailers create a winter wonderland complete with carol singers, free hot chocolate and parking, and beautiful window displays.
Choosing Inglewood as home will have you waking each day filled with excitement. With so much history to learn about and areas to explore, you’ll wish there were more hours in the day.
