Richmond Real Estate & Community Guide
Richmond is one of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhoods, found in SW Calgary with Crowchild Trail running through its center. Originally developed in the ’50s, this mature residential neighbourhood offers mostly single-family bungalows found in quiet cul-de-sacs. Because of their age, many homes have been torn down and replaced. Some owners have tried to keep the unique era of the home while reconstructing, while others have chosen more modern and luxurious options. Those wishing for a maintenance-free lifestyle have their choice with a large selection of apartment condos.
With its city center location, and being minutes away from the trendy Marda Loop, Richmond is appealing for its close proximity to a large variety of schools, stores for shopping, and cafes and restaurants. Easy access allows residents to enjoy nearby leisure and recreational facilities such as golf courses, pools, and Garrison curling club, while the newer local community center offers basketball, hockey, and skating, as well as community events and activities.
