Map of Kingsland

Built and developed from land annexed to the city of Calgary in 1956, Kingsland was established one year later. Located in a part of the city known for its’ shopping opportunities, it is a prime and attractive location for those just getting out into the job market in their early twenties. Bordered by Glenmore Trail, MacLeod Trail, Heritage Drive, and Elbow Drive, the majority of the properties in Kingsland, approximately 65%, are used for renting. Its’ 4,500 residents are appreciative of its’ remarkable location. To its’ west are many kilometres of green spaces from the Elbow River, the Glenmore Reservoir, and the recreational activities that accompany these attractions. Also in the west is the Rockyview General Hospital. To Kingsland’s east are dozens and dozens of retail outlets, restaurants, small businesses, offices, and shopping opportunities that populate both sides of MacLeod Trail. Kingsland is one of the few communities that can say that it offers its’ residents the best of both worlds – nature and commercial alike.

Public school students regularly attend Chinook Park elementary, Woodman junior high, and Henry Wise Wood senior high school.

Catholic school students attend St. Augustine elementary and junior high school – this facility is within walking distance right in Kingsland. Upon completion of their studies at St. Augustine, they are then assigned to Bishop Grandin senior high school.

Amenities are in excess here, as mentioned above, but one attraction that has yet to be mentioned is the Kingsland Farmer’s Market. Open Thursdays through to Mondays, it offers residents of this community and neighbouring ones the opportunity to purchase local and fresh food from Calgary-based vendors.

The neighborhood is also lucky in the sense that all of its’ borders are major transportation routes that lead out to the downtown core. The Light Rail Transit system also comes directly through the community allowing an alternative method to its’ residents to gain access to other parts of the city. Calgary Transit also has multiple stops that line all of Kingsland’s borders.

With the amenities that neatly crowd the outskirts of this community, Kingsland is no hard sell.

Whether it’s to be close for a job opportunity, to be close to nature but not entirely cut off from the city, or to be near to transportation routes to take a resident to wherever they might want to go, Kingsland carries with it a combination of opportunities unlike other Calgary neighborhoods.
