Westgate is a community in the South West area of Calgary. The community was developed in the late 1950's. Conveniently located in between Bow Trail and 17th Avenue SW.
Most of the homes are single family bungalow type that have been well maintained and upgraded over the years.
Edworthy Park is located just on the north side of Bow Trail. Edworthy Park is a well enjoyed area by many Calgarians. Families can spend an entire day at the park enjoying the picnic areas, the hiking and biking trails. Many other people come to the park to allow their dos to run around freely, as there are certain areas in the park that are deemed an "off leash" area.
There is a lot of history with respect to Edworthy Park, however the people who come to the park are more interested in the beauty within it and the relaxation of being in a forested area with a river flowing through it.
All this natural beauty within close distance to downtown. A quick drive along Bow Trail or 17th Avenue SW is all that is between this community and the city centre.
While vehicle access to downtown is quick and convenient, there is an LRT (Light Rail Transit) station right on 17th Avenue SW.
Westbrook Mall is nearby on Bow Trail at 37th Street. Excellent schools in the surrounding communities.
