As one of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhoods, Bridgeland-Riverside had its start as the first home for many new Calgarians and it continues to be a vibrant, urban area today. The blossoming, youthful community — formerly known as Riverside — is located in downtown’s northeast. 1010 Memorial Drive NE is the entrance into the community that has slowly been rebuilding from old to new.
The neighbourhood is snuggled close to the Bow, provides easy access to transit and river walking trails, and is within easy walking distance to the downtown core. With 1900s-era houses tucked in amongst restaurants, retail store fronts and multiple condo buildings, Bridgeland holds a place for Calgary’s past and offers a sustainable vision for the future.
Bridgeland is bordered by Sunnyside, the East Village and Downtown.
