About Ward 1

Ward 1 is located in Calgary’s northwest and many of its communities are afforded incredible views of the Alberta Rockies. The City’s beloved Bow River winds through a number of the communities, providing natural greenspace, recreational areas and beautiful parks. Iconic parks such as Bowness Park and Bowmont Park, and the soon- to- be developed Haskayne Park offer some of the loveliest recreational areas in the city.

Ward 1 includes the following  communities: Bowness, Crestmont, Greenwood Village/Green Briar, Rocky Ridge, Royal Oak, Scenic Acres, Silver Springs, Tuscany/Lynx Ridge, Valley Ridge and Varsity.

Many communities in Ward 1 are highly sought after because of their family-friendly amenities, their schools, and their services. Tuscany is seen as a vibrant community built around a central hub, with numerous schools and recreational green spaces, and is the starting point of the LRT Red Line. The historic former village of Bowness is an integral part of the ward, with its strong sense of community and individuality, and the ever-popular Bowness Park as its main gathering point. The communities of Scenic Acres and Valley Ridge are annually beautified through their respective LEAF programs (Landscape Enhancement and ppreciation Fund) as seen in their streetside flower pots, manicured green spaces, and seasonal plantings. Silver Springs is also home to the volunteer-staffed BP Birthplace Forest Botanical Gardens and, along with Varsity and Bowness, is one of the many entry points to the recently restored Bowmont Park. Silver Springs has the distinction of being home to one of the City’s last outdoor public swimming pools, the result of successful fundraising by its community-oriented volunteers working together to raise the additional funding required to build the pool their community wanted.

Collectively, the communities in Ward 1 are embracing a broad range of local projects, improvements and change. To name just a few of them, Ward 1 is the home to the new Shane Homes Recreational Facility in Rocky Ridge/Royal Oak, Tuscany has the new Eric Harvie Elementary School and EMS Centre, Crestmont is undergoing its second  residential development phase, the development of the new community of Greenwich is underway, Scenic Acres has the brand new Franco Sud School opening, Varsity now has the Christine Meickle School, the nearly completed Groves of Varsity development and new additions to Market Mall, and Bowness has seen the restoration of Bowness Park and the completion of the Bowfort Road/TransCanada Highway interchange at the entry to WinSport and the brand new Medicine Hills development.
