Elbow Park is one of Calgary’s most exclusive luxury communities. Found less than three kilometres south from the downtown core, Elbow Park’s variety of elevations and adjacency to the Elbow River attribute great views and riverside property to many of its homes.
Established in 1910, many of the homes in the area have been completely renovated inside and out to meet the needs of the home owners and also to appeal to the increasing number of home buyers in the Calgary luxury homes market.
A combination of these beautiful homes and a one of a kind inner city location makes Elbow Park one of the most highly desirable living locations for the affluent in the City of Calgary.
Elbow Park is also a very family-friendly Calgary community with a majority of its population under the age of 24! It is a safe and serene area great for those looking to stay for the long term and raise a family in, just like its neighbouring communities of Mount Royal and Britannia.
