East of the Deerfoot is
It has merged with Radisson Heights so the names are often used together or interchangably, and this pair lies between Memorial Drive and 17th Avenue SE and west of 36th Street and Forest Lawn. See the yellow number 175 on the map.
The 6000 people there enjoy the view of Downtown, The Rocky Mountains and the river valley with the Max Bell Centre and Deerfoot Trail.
There is more to Albert Park than meets the eye. Let's start with its heritage; Albert Smyth and partner designed this to become a nice place with a lake, windmills and many other attractions. When desperation called for them to start a railroad scam to get business, problems compounded and they eventually abandoned the project.
It took from 1908 to 1950 to finish developing the area, and it now has a community centre with a kitchen, pool/shuffleboard tables and TV. It also features bingo, skating, sports, video games and foosball.
Many like this area because of its inner city charm, large trees and character homes. The affordable prices here make it even better for many, especially if the process of gentrification does turn it into a more upscale area in the future.
Why we like it here
The Community is close to downtown, Deerfoot Trail, Barlow Trail and Memorial Drive. The Franklin LRT C-Train Station serves these people as well. Many folks have noted that the convenient proximity to Marlborough Mall, Devry College, the Calgary Zoo and Northgate Shopping Centre, parks, golfing and several schools help make this a desirable place to live.
Speaking of schools, the Radisson Park School takes kids from kindergarten to grade 4 while 5's to 9's go to Sir Wilfred Laurier School. High School kids to to Forest Lawn. Catholic families can choose Holy Family or Holy Redeemer for K to 6, Bishop Kidd for 7 to 9 and then Father Lacombe High School.
