Charleswood Neighbourhood Amenities and Highlights
Homes in Charleswood aren't far from all that the northwest quadrant of Calgary has to offer. In fact, it's just east of the Brentwood Village Shopping Centre that's situated in the southside of the neighbouring community of Brentwood.
The University of Calgary is also adjacent to the neighbourhood, along with Alberta Children's Hospital, Foothills Medical Centre, and a number of restaurants/bars. For even more shopping opportunities, the North Hill Centre is a mere 3km to the southeast and downtown is a short 15-minute drive.
While residents can easily drive to these locations, public transportation is easily accessible via the stops that are situated throughout the community.

Within Charleswood there are several parks, beginning with Triwood Park and the large meadow that's immediate to the west of it. Both of these offer ample space for outdoor play for residents, although it's not surprising that many enjoy hanging out at Nose Hill Park that borders the north.
With pathways, wildlife, a winter club, the river, and tons of recreational space, this park is one of the best treasures in the City of Calgary. Canmore Park and the Confederation Park Golf Course also border Charleswood, just on the southeast corner. The park, in particular, is popular because it has a spray park, wading pool, outdoor pool, ball diamond, and tennis courts.
The golf course has a two-tier driving range and 9-holes for enthusiasts to enjoy during the summer.
The area to the southwest of Charleswood (just next to the University of Calgary) is another excellent resource for outdoor play. It contains Foothills Athletic Park, McMahon Stadium, the Olympic Oval, Norma Bush Arena, The Volleydome, and Foothills Stadium.
Travelling further down south leads to the beautiful bow river which is surrounded by the pathway for walking, biking, or running alongside the water. Even with all of this in such close proximity, most residents of Charleswood enjoy staying near home because they have such an excellent community association. It regularly hosts events for residents of all ages, whether it's tai chi for seniors or a soccer game for children.
