This hidden almost forgotten about community, is boasting new growth and more development now! Bridgeland formally knows as Riverside located to the immediate northeast of downtown Calgary. Bridgeland borders a natural environment composed of the confluence of the Bow River and Elbow River. Tom Campbell’s Hill Park lies on the eastern edge of Bridgeland and overlooks the downtown, Bow River and northeastern part of the city. St. Patrick’s Island and St. George’s Island lie in the southern part of Bridgeland. St. George’s Island is home to the Calgary Zoo, Canada’s second largest zoo. Bridgeland being in the heart of the city is close to everything! Starting with the sense of family and accessibility, close to elementary through to high schools, continued learning schools, and all forms of transit, there are also many parks and playgrounds and a new elementary school for disabled kids will be under way in 2015. For the young couples of Calgary, this neighborhood is one of the only remaining quadrants of Calgary that still boasts the classic and vintage architecture and only a 10 minute walk to the heart of night life central. With dozens of new pubs, restaurants, attractions, movie theatres and walking paths this is a wonderful spot to spend some time with your partner and fall in love all over again. Last but never the least, for the classic Calgarians; the ones that have seen the city shift and change and most of all grow! This is the finest location in Calgary for you to enjoy a quiet night on your porch, under massive 50 year old poplars and watch from just across the river as the city buzzes with excitement, or, take a stroll to one of the many dog parks, pottery classes or boutiques nearby. Truly a one of a kind communities and stronger now more than ever. This locality has seen and survived some of Calgary’s scariest moments; from the floods of 2013 to the destroying snow fall of 2014, Bridgeland is still big and beautiful and strong! Welcome home to a one of a kind community!
