Eau Claire is a community in the South West quadrant of the city of Calgary.
It is adjacent to the downtown and bounded by Prince's Island Park and the Bow River.
The name came from the fact that in earlier history of the city, the Eau Claire Lumber Company, was situated on the land where today, we have a vibrant community.
There are condo's and lots of restaurants and shopping and hotels in the district.
Here you will find both the Market as well as the Barclay Mall.
Prince's Island Park is developed on an island on the Bow River and was named after Peter Prince, who was an integral part of the Lumber Mill.
The park is a beautiful oasis within a few minutes walk to the downtown core. In the summer there are many outdoor festivals that are enjoyed by all who attend.
Obviously, lots of green spaces being adjacent to Prince's Island Park, beautiful views of Bow River and of course the downtown skyline.
Easy access to public transit, as it is virtually on the edge of downtown.
