Elbow park

A beautiful community with tree lined streets and an abundance of green space. Beautiful parks, walking and bike paths and breathtaking views of the river.

When you are in this community, it is hard to believe that you are in an inner city neighbourhood.

Nature abounds with only a short distance to the city centre. bAll within a tranquil environment.

Of course, the Chinook Centre, on MacLeod Trail would be the major shopping attraction.

There are many unique shops in the neighbouring community of Brittania.

Excellent schools in and around this community.
