Spacious, Luxury Living In the Heart Of The City

Elbow Park was established by real estate developer, Freddy Lowes, who intended to design a community of spacious lots and beautiful homes along the meandering Elbow RIver. While construction of new homes boomed in Elbow Park over the next 10 years, soon came the start of World War I. But Elbow Park was already firmly entrenched in the Calgary landscape and it was one of the last residential communities completed before the war. Elbow Park is a diverse and eclectic mix of many kinds of architecture with designated historic homes, craftsman bungalows, mid century dwellings, and homes with an ultra modern flair. With its enviable location and mature, established feel, Elbow Park is a great place to call home.

Centrally Located

Elbow Park offers the best of both worlds with quiet, narrow, residential streets right in the inner city. Elbow park has large, private lots, nearly-ancient green, canopied avenues, families of all kinds, and a friendly neighbourhood feel within walking distance to every urban amenity imaginable. 

Historic Architecture

With lots ranging from 25 to 50 feet, the home designs of Elbow Park are varied and unique. Some residences are preserved in their authentic state and designated heritage homes, others have been renovated with the intention of maintaining or replicating their original charm. Still others reflect the different eras of design in Calgary and there are many newer builds with a contemporary esthetic.

Community Living

Elbow Park is a safe and serene community even as it is located adjacent to the hustle and bustle of Calgary’s downtown core. The Elbow Park Residents Association plays a major role in cultivating a sense of community among its residents with the clubhouse acting as the hub for residents for fundraising events, informational seminars, and social activities.


Opportunities for recreation abound in Elbow Park. Try your hand at racquet sports with the Elbow Park Tennis Club, shoot some hoops at the modern outdoor basketball courts with 6 adjustable height nets, join residents instructors for classes like Pilates in the Park, pass the puck or hop on the ice for a leisurely skate at the outdoor rinks, kick it with the Villains Soccer Club, or pal around with some pooches with the Elbow Park Kennel Club.

Raise A Family

Elbow Park is a young community with 37% of residents below the age of 24 and nearly 75% under 55. This is a great community to raise a family with multiple options for some of the best schools in the city.
