Monthly Community Highlight: The Westbrook Communities
This month’s community profile is a little different as we take a look at the 10 communities which make up the Westbrook area in SW Calgary. Comprised of Glenbrook, Glendale, Killarney/Glengarry, Richmond, Rosscarrock, Shaganappi, Spruce Cliff, Westgate, Wildwood and Upper Scarboro/Sunalta, this beautiful group of communities are bordered by Sarcee to the West, Glenmore Trail to the South and Crowchild to the East.
With a combined population of around 36,058, these are popular neighbourhoods for families looking for an established community and professional who want a quick commute to downtown. Single family homes, luxury infills and duplex/townhouse housing offers options for most, creating a vibrant and diverse community feel with an average purchase price of approximately $760,000.
Being established neighbourhoods, there are all the services you need and often within walking distance. You have schools, medical services, Westbrook Mall, LRT station and shops of all varieties at your front door. The Signal Hill/Westhills shopping plazas are also close by with even more shopping & dining choices and a theatre to catch all the new flicks.
There are an abundance of park, green spaces and community centres with awesome sport resources to enjoy and Glenbrook is the home of one of Calgary’s premiere sports facilities, Optimist Athletic Park with diamonds, fields and 2 arenas and non-stop action no matter the season. You can also quickly escape to the mountains and be on the highway to Banff or Bragg Creek in mere minutes from anywhere in the Westbrook area!
