Hounsfield Heights/Briar Hill Community Background

hounsfield-hghts-briar-hill-playgroundHounsfield Heights and Briar Hill are located in Calgary’s northwest. The community is located on an escarpment that offers good views of downtown to the south and the mountains to the west.  The area has a rich history.  It was once part of the Riley family homestead (which also contained Hillhurst, St. Andrew’s Heights and University Heights. Thomas Riley and his wife Georgina Hounsfield Riley and their children settled there in 1888. Their home, Hounsfield Lodge, was situated on the present site of the Bethany Care Centre. The area was first subdivided in 1906, and was annexed by Calgary in the same year.

The centre contains a gymnasium and is used for martial arts, women’s self defense, summer basketball, indoor soccer, and senior’s badminton. A playgroup and community kindergarten meet at the local elementary school. In the coming years, expansions to the hall will continue, with additions including a common area, storage space, offices, and youth activity space.
