Map of Lincoln Park

The neighborhood that acts as home to Calgary’s Mt. Royal University, Lincoln Park is located north of the Glenmore Trail and just west of the Crowchild Trail. Located on a section of the former Canadian Forces Base Calgary that was a Royal Canadian Air Force airfield in World War II, the name of the district was given to a small portion of military housing between 54th avenue and the Glenmore Trail that was assigned to members of the United States Air Force who were stationed there during World War II. With a small population of no more than 2,750 residents, the residential sector of Lincoln Park is made up entirely of rentals due to its’ prime location to the university.

Public school students that reside in the area are assigned to attend Sir James Lougheed elementary, A.E. Cross junior high, and Central Memorial senior high school. Catholic school students regularly attend Holy Name elementary, St. James elementary and junior high school, and Bishop Carroll senior high school.

Most of Lincoln Park’s amenities are near exclusively reserved for those relating to the university.

The ATCO Industrial Park is also located within the greater Lincoln Park region.

Lincoln Park is lucky in the sense that it has two transportation routes to two different parts of the city with a large amount of opportunities to shop, explore, and dine. Crowchild Trail guides its’ drivers to the downtown core while Glenmore Trail offers its’ drivers access to other parts of the city including the shopping district that lines it.

Calgary Transit offers multiple stops along Richardson Way, Richard Rd, and Mt. Royal Gate to offer students and other residents low-cost access to other parts of the city.

For those looking to assimilate with the university crowd, Lincoln Park is as close as you can get. The community’s interests mirror those of the university. With its’ two routes leading out to the downtown centre and other parts of Calgary, Lincoln Park is a nicely secluded neighborhood with all the amenities that a student or young twenty-something would want.
