Inner-City Living Experience - Calgary Inglewood

Inner-City Living Experience - Calgary Inglewood

Located just southeast of downtown’s East Village, Inglewood is home to Calgary’s original main street. This community encompasses several blocks of 9th Avenue SE and is bordered to the north and the east by the flowing might of the Bow River and on the west side by the meandering Elbow River. To the south, Inglewood is contained by Alyth Road and the Canadian Pacific Rail lines. Inglewood is Calgary’s oldest neighbourhood, established in 1875, and is still home to many of Calgary’s most notable historical landmarks. Inglewood is a unique mix of residential, corporate, commercial, retail, and tourist destinations.

If you are looking to buy or sell in Calgary's oldest neighbourhood, Inglewood, The Eklund Group is an expert inner-city real estate team. Contact our Realtors® for skilled and knowledgeable insight into Calgary’s unique living opportunities in the heart of the city. 1-403-863-7434.  

A Unique Destination To Call Home

Inglewood was originally known as East Calgary or Brewery Flats, a nod to the heritage site of the Calgary Brewing and Malting Co. operating in the neighbourhood from 1893 until 1994. It was given the name Inglewood in 1911 after Col. James Walker’s nearby homestead. From its earliest days, Inglewood has been a hub of culture, entertainment, and commerce. Today Inglewood is a thriving community that is a destination and a great place to call home.

A Timeline Of Calgary
One of the most appealing features of Inglewood is the way it illustrates the progression of time in our city. Home to over 400 residential, institutional, and commercial buildings constructed before 1914, Inglewood is epitomized by places such as Fort Calgary, the Deane House, and the Burn Block. But the evolution and adaptability of Inglewood are showcased in many contemporary, sleek and shiny commercial and residential, low rise buildings too. For Calgarians who want to call Inglewood home, step off the main street and choose between original historic homes, architecturally stunning new construction, multi-family dwellings, and properties backing onto the majestic Bow River.

The Place To Be
The community of Inglewood is home to many, but it is also a popular destination for tourists to the city and Calgarians alike. Inglewood is rife with arts and culture, with local music venues like the Ironwood Stage And Grill and The Blues Can, and the renowned Calgary International Folk Festival is headquartered here. Live theatre and the visual arts have also found a home in Inglewood. The Bleak Midwinter Film Festival, Calgary International Fringe Festival, The International Festival of Animated Objects, and many live acts and stage performances keep the artsy vibe of Inglewood strong. If quiet reflection is more your thing, take a stroll through one of the neighbourhood art galleries. 

Shop And Dine
The merchants and restaurants scattered throughout Inglewood offer plenty of ways to spend your time and your money. Unique shops like Silk Road Spice Merchants (a foodie dream), Stash Needle Art Lounge (for the yarn craft enthusiast), and Recordland (approximately 1 million vinyl records) hawk goods not found anywhere else. And if all the shopping makes you hungry, consider a gastro-tour with options for dine in and take out from breakfast (try pastries at Canela Vegan Bakery or eggs benny at Monki Bistro) through to late-night cocktails and tapas (try craft beers and tacos at Cold Garden or swanky cocktails and carpaccio at The Nash).

Go Wild
Despite its inner-city location, Inglewood is a haven of urban, natural reserves. In addition to many kilometres of river pathways, this neighbourhood offers wild experiences right in the city with attractions like the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, Inglewood Wildlands Park, the Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery, and the Bow Habitat Station.
