Scarboro/Sunalta West Community Background

scarboro-communityScarboro is a residential neighbourhood in the south-west quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is located in the inner city, between Bow Trail, 24th Street West, 14th St West and 17 Avenue South. The community is bisected by the Crowchild Trail freeway. The land which now comprises the community of Scarboro was originally owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway. As was the case in the community of Mount Royal, the development of Scarboro adhered to the topography of the land and street names rather than numbers were used. The community was annexed to the city of Calgary in 1907 and subdivision plans were approved in 1910 and 1911. A restrictive covenant was placed on lots, still in effect today, which restricts uses that are in conflict with the residential nature of the subdivision.

Scarboro/Sunalta West Community Association


Scarboro is generally credited as being the first community association in Calgary. It was first formed in the mid 1920s and then incorporated in 1934 as a Society. Our first community hall was under the present Crowchild Trail where we had tennis courts and skating rinks in an old sandstone quarry.
Both Sunalta and Scarboro are small, old communities in relation to burgeoning Calgary. The two community associations have worked together to maintain the overall area as an attractive residential area for families and others. Our story is about people who have believed in our communities and whose work has made them continue as attractive places to live.
