The inner city communities of Erlton, Rideau, Roxboro, and Parkhill border the East banks of the Elbow River to McLeod Trail between Lindsay Park and 42nd Avenue SW. These residential neighbourhoods provide some beautiful natural scenery, easy access to the river pathway systems, The Stampede Grounds, Repsol Sports Centre, Stanley Park, and a short commute to Mission or to the downtown core by walking, cycling, C-train or car.

The homes in these neighbourhoods range in variety from condos, brownstone and townhomes, detached homes - character, modern, and luxury homes backing onto the Elbow River or along the ridge with gorgeous views of downtown, the river valley, and the Rocky Mountains.

Erlton is one of Calgary’s hidden gems. It is a small residential neighbourhood with an approximate population of 1200 residents. Although it is primarily residential, it is steps away from groceries, coffee, restaurants, and shops in Mission.

Roxboro, established in 1923, is one of Calgary’s wealthiest neighbourhoods with less than 500 dwellings, all detached homes. The established neighbourhood offers a suburban feel with modern conveniences. Tree-lined streets, parks, and the Elbow River provide a beautiful scenic setting.

Rideau Park features many riverside custom homes and historic highrise towers and luxury townhomes perched upon the Elbow River escarpment with 13 acres of green space and an outdoor pool. 

Further South along the Elbow River is Parkhill, one of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhoods. The area has experienced steady urban renewal and is now home to over 1,500 residents in an eclectic mix of real estate. The community offers kilometres of river pathways and bike paths as well as an event hall, tennis courts, a skating rink, playgrounds, toboggan hills, picnic areas, and more.

With an extensive range of real estate, recreation options and access to retail, these inner city neighbourhoods are some of Calgary’s most sought after communities.
