The neighbourhoods of Hillhurst and Sunnyside are located in Calgary’s inner city, northwest of and across from the Bow River. Established in the early 1900s, Hillhurst and Sunnyside are one of the older communities in Calgary. An important event in the community’s history was the construction of the Mewata Bridge over the Bow River in 1954. This turned 14th Street into a major link to downtown and initiated commercial redevelopment of the housing in the area. These areas, and the nearby business district of Kensington, have since been enhanced through the efforts of the Business Revitalization Zone Association. They, along with the annual Farmer’s Market, offer a number of diverse commercial opportunities for residents. There are also recreational areas nearby, at both Hillhurst Athletic Park and Riley Park. The community is also located on the C-train line. There are both public and separate schools in the area.
The Hillhurst/Sunnyside community association is active in providing programming for its residents. For the area children, the community association offers a year round daycare, and out-of school care and for seniors a drop in socializing group on Mondays and community outreach program that offers them assistance with their yardwork and lawn. Other programs, such as the Farmers’ Market and Food Fit are popular also.
Sports are another important aspect of the community. The soccer pitches, ball diamonds and tennis courts in Hillhurst Athletic Park are well used by local children. In the summer, outdoor soccer in the community association fields is well attended. And in the summer the outdoor tennis courts receive lots of player use from residents.
