Banff Trail Community Background

Banff-Trail-ParkBanff Trail is a residential neighborhood in the north-west quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is located north-east of the intersection of Crowchild Trail and Trans-Canada Highway, east of McMahon Stadium and the University of Calgary. The Banff Trail station of the C-train LRT system serves the community, which contains a large motel village in the south-west corner. It is named for the town of Banff, which in turn takes its name from Banffshire, Scotland. The adjoining Highway 1 connects the city of Calgary to Banff and Banff National Park. The community has an Area redevelopment plan in place.

 

Banff Trail Community Association

Banff-Trail-Community-HallBanff Trail is home to one of the city’s oldest community associations, which has been in existence since the 1950s. During this time the community association has initiated a number of programs and remains very active today. Many Calgarians enjoy the use of the two volunteer-run skating rinks for hockey and shinny games in the winter as well as the baseball diamond in the summer. Monday Evening Music Jams, Cribbage Afternoons and Ladies Auxiliary are popular activities hosted at the community hall for community members.

In 2010, the community association spearheaded the creation of a Community Garden attracting the involvement of a wide variety of community members. Each year the community also hosts a popular Stampede Event as well as several pancake breakfasts. The community association also makes an effort to connect the various groups within Banff Trail. An example of a successful collaboration between Branton Junior High students and seniors was the compilation of a memory book that details the resident’s memories of growing up in Banff Trail. This book was bound and is available for purchase through the community association.
