Brentwood Real Estate & Community Guide
Located in Northwest Calgary, the mature residential community of Brentwood offers charm and a peaceful atmosphere, making it an ideal neighbourhood for families looking to raise their children.
Brentwood is bordered by major roads such as John Laurie Blvd, Crowchild Trail and Shaganappi Trail providing quick and easy commuting to downtown and other parts of Calgary. The neighbourhood has its own LRT station for those who prefer not to drive and deal with Calgary parking, or for convenient and stress-free transportation to Calgary’s local attractions and events.
Real estate in Brentwood was established in 1960. The community consists of tree-lined streets filled with impressive estates sitting on large lots, single-family detached homes, and several condos and townhomes. The neighbourhood is surrounded by the communities of Collingwood, Dalhousie and Varsity.
Those who enjoy the great outdoors love spending their leisure time at the adjacent Nose Hill Park. Boasting numerous paths throughout the natural grasslands, hikers and bikers alike can enjoy beautiful scenery and wildlife as they explore.
Residents of all ages can connect and keep busy with activities and programs hosted by the Brentwood Community Association at the Brentwood Sportsplex. Fitness and dance classes, skating, hockey programs, senior bridge nights as well as several playgroups and programs for children are just some of the activities offered. In the summer months, residents take joy and pride in their community garden, while the association puts on BBQs where families can connect and build friendships.
Amenities are numerous and close by, with Northland Village Mall being the main local destination. This mall provides everything, from retail shopping to dining, small and professional businesses, as well as big-box stores. The Nose Hill Library is nearby and serves Brentwood residents well.
There are several outstanding schools that serve families in the area for all grade school levels with the options of public, separate, and french immersion. When it comes to secondary schooling, the University of Calgary, Alberta College of Art and Design and SAIT are all easily accessible.
