Palliser Community in South Calgary
Palliser is a beautiful Southwest Calgary neighbourhood that has a special history. The name likely rings familiar because it's shared with other significant points of interest in the area, such as the Palliser Mountain Range and Palliser Hotel. The name comes from the early explorer named Captain John Palliser, who is known for surveying the land mass between the Pacific Ocean and Lake Superior. His exploration was so significant that his name will long live on in this community and other historic landmarks.
Homes for Sale in Palliser
Established in 1967, Palliser was separated from the luxury community of Pump Hill in 1991. The majority of homes for sale in Palliser are apartments and single-family dwellings. Although traditional residences may not be most familiar, homeowners who live in them take great pride in their appearance. This is why most properties are adorned by beautiful vegetation, gardens, and green grass in their front and backyards. Row houses and apartments share this same beauty, with pathways lined with mature trees and green grass located throughout the neighbourhood.
