Bowness Real Estate & Community Guide

Previously a village in 1948,  then growing into the small town of Bowness in 1951, the community of Bowness was integrated as a community into the city of Calgary in 1964. A mature and diverse community with small-town charm,  Bowness is becoming popular again with its new infills and new business that continue to arise.

Bowness is located in West Calgary, boasting great views of the Rocky Mountains. The Bow River borders its North And East, offering additional views as well as fantastic recreational opportunities, while 16 Ave and Stoney Trail to its South and West provide quick and easy access to major routes for commuting to downtown or day trips to the mountains.

Homes here range from townhouses and apartments to original craftsman-style bungalows, to luxury homes on large lots backing onto the river. Some older homes have kept their historical appearances, while others have been updated and remodelled with a contemporary look and feel.

Those who enjoy an active lifestyle will love having Bowness Park at their fingertips. One of Calgary’s most popular parks, Bowness Park is filled with an abundance of green space for picnics and sports, playgrounds for families with young children, as well as a multitude of trails that make up part of Calgary’s large pathway network for walking, running, biking and rollerblading. On the edge of the park sits a lagoon, popular in the winter months for ice skating,  and bustling in the summer months with swimming, kayaking and paddleboarding.

For those looking for year-round recreation and fitness opportunities, nearby Shouldice Park provides arenas, swimming pools, tennis courts, sports programs and fields, while Winsport, Canada Olympic Park brings a rush of adrenaline with mountain biking, skiing and snowboarding and even bobsleighs!

The community connects its members with its own community association offering several programs and activities for residents of all ages, as well as yearly events including the Stampede Breakfast, the Harvest Fair, Christmas Fair and Dinner, Farmer’s Markets, and the Tour of Bowness Biking event.

Nearby amenities for residents of Bowness include the Foothills Medical Centre, Alberta Children’s Hospital, and the Tom Baker Cancer Centre when medical attention is needed. School options for families include public, separate and french immersion schools for elementary, middle and high school-aged children. The nearby University of Calgary is a great secondary school option.

Market Mall provides shopping convenience, while old-fashioned diners, cafes and restaurants offer great dining options.
