NW CALGARY, ALBERTA
The neighbourhoods of Hillhurst and Sunnyside are located in Calgary’s inner city, northwest of and across from the Bow River. Established in the early 1900s, both communities are some of the older areas in Calgary. An important event in the community’s history was the construction of the Mewata Bridge over the Bow River in 1954. This turned 14th Street into a major link to downtown and initiated commercial redevelopment of the housing in the area. These areas, and the nearby business district of Kensington, have since been enhanced through the efforts of the Business Revitalization Zone Association. They, along with the annual Farmer’s Market, offer a number of diverse commercial opportunities for residents. There are also recreational areas nearby, at both Hillhurst Athletic Park and Riley Park. The community is located on the C-train line.
Sunnyside is bordered by Centre Street on the east and by 10th Street NW on the west. On the north Sunnyside is bounded by McHugh Bluff Park and on the south by the Bow River. – See more at: http://hillhurstsunnyside.org/about/our-communities/#sthash.XG6ckppz.dpuf
