Palliser Community Background
The community of Palliser is named after Captain John Palliser, an early explorer and surveyor in western Canada. Accompanied by a botanist, a doctor, an astronomer and an artillery officer turned naturalist, John Palliser lead an expedition to survey the land mass between Lake Superior and the Pacific Ocean. Because of Palliser’s significance in Alberta history, his name adorns such varied features as the Palliser Mountain Range near Banff and the stately Palliser Hotel in Calgary. The community of Palliser is located in the southwest sector of the City. The pathway links Palliser to the Glenmore Reservoir and its many recreation opportunities, such as boat docks, Weaselhead Flats hiking trails, Glenmore Park and the Heritage Park Historical Village. Palliser encompassed the community of Pump Hill until 1991. At that time, the community was split along 19 Street S.W. to form Palliser to the west and Pump Hill to the east.
