Rideau Park Community Background

Due to a bend in the river, Rideau Park is bordered on three sides by the Elbow River. Rideau Park is the home of Lindsay’s Castle. Dr. Neville J. Lindsay, a prominent doctor and developer in Calgary during the early 1900s, decided to build an elaborate sandstone home on the escarpment above the Elbow River.
The mansion would have had a spectacular view of the city and the mountains, however, due to financial problems, only the foundation and main floor of the building were constructed. The community is within close proximity to the downtown, to major transportation routes such as 4th Street and Macleod Trail, and to the pathway system.

Rideau Park is surrounded by natural amenities with the Elbow River forming the northern edge of the community and bluffs the east and southern edges. The predominant form of building in the area is single family dwellings. Residents have direct access to downtown, which is only 2. 5 kilometers north of Roxboro, via 4th Street S.W.

I’m not a partisan politician. I’ve sat through 8 addresses 2 @TheAUMA from #AB’s #Premiers. Credit where credit is due: @RachelNotley’s today at #AUMA2017 was by far the most thoughtful, meaningful content-filled, the best, of my political career.

Rideau Park is also a part of the Calgary Elbow Provincial Electoral District.
