Thorncliffe Community Background
Thorncliffe is located in north Calgary at the easterly base of Nose Hill Park and south of the community of Huntington Hills. 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. The form of development which has occurred since 1954 is predominantly single-family, interspersed with some duplex dwellings. Residents of Thorncliffe have access to Nose Hill Park and the pathway, which includes a route through the Nose Creek Valley. It should be noted that the area known as Thorncliffe/Greenview was separated into three communities in 1991, Upper North Haven in the west, Thorncliffe in the centre, and Greenview in the east.
