Greenview Community Background
The community of Greenview was part of Thorncliffe/Greenview until 1991. At that time, two areas separated from Thorncliffe/Greenview to be established as separate communities. A small area of land form the western part of the community became known as Upper North Haven, and the eastern portion of the community is now Greenview. The boundaries of Greenview are quite irregular but generally it is located southwest of the Calgary International Airport. A substantial proportion of land in Greenview is occupied by industrial uses and the Canadian Pacific Railway line runs through it.
