Parkdale is a community in the North West quadrant of the city of Calgary.

The area was developed in the late 1940's and consists mainly of single family homes.


The community boasts many beautiful green spaces especially since it is just north, across the Boulevard, from the Bow River.


The neighbour to the north of the community is St. Andrew Heights. This community and St. Andrews Heights have a huge green space/off leash area that connects the two communities.


Close proximity to downtown via Parkdale Boulevard, and not too far from the LRT located at either the University of Calgary or McMahon Stadium.


Good location due to the fact that both the Alberta Children's Hospital and the Foothills Hospital, which is directly north of the community, are in close proximity.

Schools can be found in the neighbouring communities.
