Queensland Community Background
The community of Queensland is located in the southeast sector of the City, near the Bow River. The entire escarpment overlooking the river has been designated as public open space in order to maintain the natural characteristics of the area and to provide for public access to the river. The area comprising Queensland was annexed to the City in 1961, yet it was not until 1973 that development began to occur. Single family residential dwellings are the predominant form of development in the community, with some multi-family dwellings.
