Killarney is a community in the South West quadrant of the city of Calgary. It started its development in the mid 1940's and consists mainly of bungalow type single family homes with some town homes and condos.
Many residents have purchased older homes and replaced them with infills that complement the existing more mature homes in the neighbourhood.
There are green spaces, parks, playgrounds and bike paths for all to enjoy. The community is well known for the city indoor pool and community gardens.
Excellent location with easy access to the downtown via 17th Avenue SW or Richmond Road SW. These main routes border the community to the north and south.
Excellent bus service to the down town core with a LRT (Light Rail Transit) Station slightly north along Bow Trail SW in the neighbouring community of Shaganappi.
Neighbours to the north are Shaganappi to the west across from 37th Street SW is Glenbrook to the south divided by Richmond Road is Rutland Park.
Easy access to shopping along Richmond Road SW and 17th Avenue SW but both the West Hill and Signal Hill centres are close by. Westbrook Mall is just slightly north of the community on 37th Street SW.
Schools can be found in the neighbourhood as well as the surrounding communities.
