Communities with character

Mature and distinctive communities are a point of pride for Calgary's southwest residents

Lawyer Chris Davis is no stranger to Calgary's southwest, a sprawling quadrant of the city roughly bordered by the Bow River to the north, Macleod Trail to the east, and the city limits to the south and west.

"My family has long roots in the southwest, going back to the early 1920s," he said, adding he spent his early years growing up in Lower Mount Royal and is also running for city council in Ward 8 in this fall's municipal election.

"Historically, there seemed to be a big divide as to whether your family chose to live north or south of the Bow River."

Because of his familial connection, Davis found himself gravitating toward an adult life in the southwest, residing in Bankview, Elbow Park, Garrison Woods, Parkhill and Richmond-Knob Hill at various times.

Village Gardener a community affair

Local Village Brewery uses locally grown goods for featured Calgary suds

Four Calgary communities have taken local gardening to a whole new level growing hops and lavender, and producing honey, for local beer connoisseurs Village Brewery.

The community associations of Bridgeland-Riverside, Inglewood, Parkdale and Killarney-Glengarry each grew their own hops and in return are given kegs of Village Gardener Community Ale for fundraisers or community gathering events.
