Renfrew Community Background

Renfrew is a vibrant inner city community in Calgary, bordered by Edmonton Trail to the west, Nose Creek Valley to the east, the TransCanada Highway to the north and the Bow River escarpment to the south. The downtown core is within three kilometers and is directly accessible by Edmonton Trail. The many independently owned shops, cafes and restaurants along Edmonton Trail create a vibrant Main Street. The proximity to downtown, combined with the small town neighborhood feel, make this the perfect community for those looking for inner-city conveniences without the hustle and bustle of downtown living.

The Renfrew Community Centre is literally at the centre of the community, and offers a variety of programs and services to enhance our neighbourhood life. Many social opportunities help residents get to know each other and to continue to foster the “small town” feel that has made Renfrew a cozy and comfortable community for over 60 years. As well, there are ongoing opportunities for residents to become involved in the decision-making processes that shape our community and to voice concerns and bring forth new ideas. We are a friendly and forward-thinking community that values residents, local businesses, sustainable and attractive development and, at the centre of it all, a sense of community.
