North Haven Community Background
North Haven is a residential neighborhood in the north-west quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. The community is split by a bus trap into Lower North Haven on the south side and Upper North Haven on the north side.
North Haven was established in 1963. Development of Lower North Haven took place between 1962 and 1971. The development of Upper North Haven started in 1977. Previously the land was primarily cattle grazing ranch land., part of the once vast grazing leases of the city’s famed early ranchers, Pat Burns. The community is represented in the Calgary City Council by the Ward 4 Councillor. The neighbourhood has a community association and a community hall to serve its residents.
North Haven is bordered on the west/northwest by Nose Hill Park and 14th Street NW, along the south/southeast by John Laurie Boulevard which separates it from the neighbourhoods of Cambrian Heights and Highwood, and along the east/northeast by Egerts Park which separates it from the neighbourhood of Thorncliffe
The community of Upper North Haven was established in 1991 as a result of Thorncliffe/Greenview being separated into three communities, Upper North Haven in the west, Thorncliffe in the centre, and Greenview in the east. Upper North Haven comprises a small area of land at the easterly base of Nose Hill Park and north of the community of North Haven. The general land profile is a continuation of the lower and gentler portion of the Nose Hill bluff system, having a foothills character affording views in a number of locations. Residents of Upper North Haven may enjoy close proximity to Nose Hill Park.
