As a long-time resident in West Hillhurst, I truly can say that I am in love with the area. Coming home after a long day of running around the city, the hustle and bustle of driving through traffic, it is so relaxing when I can park my car in the garage and just take a nice long peaceful walk along the river paths that borders the community. If I am feeling too tired to cook, I have many restaurants to choose from offering a wide variety of cuisines. Don't worry if you have nothing to wear for that romantic night-out with your sweetie, there are also plenty of shops with casual and formal wear for both men and women! Calgary's downtown is just across the bridge and other amenities like the University of Calgary, Market Mall and Foothills Hospital are less than 5 km away!
Eventhough West Hillhurst is just a river's away from the downtown core, it retains a peaceful and small town feel with its tree-lined streets and assortment of housing types for you to choose from. All amenities are nearby and neighbours are friendly and look out for each other making the neighbourhood safe and secure.

My favourite part of living in West Hillhurst is a small house I pass by every day on my way home. It is just a street down from mine. It was built in 1920s and remains unchanged on the outside other than some minor fix-ups. However, as soon as you step inside, it has been completely modernized except for the old hardwood floors and yet the feel of the house brings me back to grandma's kitchen...it is truly something special and wonderful! I love West Hillhurst!
