Neighbourhood Spotlight: West Hillhurst

Found to the north of Bow River and downtown, West Hillhurst is a vibrant community found within Calgary. It's close to Kensington Village, which is very trendy and one of the most popular places for working, living, shopping and playing. This dynamic neighbourhood provides more than just a great location within the city, however.

Recreation

The area is full of great places for indoor and outdoor recreation. Runners, bikers and those enjoying the outdoors will love West Hillhurst. It's home to the Bow River path system, which provides plenty of area for runners and bikers to enjoy the outdoors. Of course, this pathway system also works well for those looking to enjoy a beautiful outdoor walk.

Along with the pathway system, West Hillhurst is home to many gyms and recreation facilities. Some are typical gyms with plenty of equipment, while others specialize in spin classes and yoga.

Shopping

If you love to shop, this neighbourhood is a good choice, as well. The Kensington Shopping District is found here and North Hill Mall is, too. Residents can enjoy shopping at both of these shopping areas without traveling very far. Of course, Downtown Calgary isn't far, either, which provides even more shopping options.

Real Estate

Homes in the area are mainly single-family homes, but a few condominium buildings are found in West Hillhurst, as well. The average single family home goes for just under $800,000, while the average condominium unit sells for about $425,000. Both of these types of housing don't stay on the market long, when available. Neither single-family homes nor condominiums stay on the market for more than 50 days, on average, in West Hillhurst.

Overall, the West Hillhurst neighbourhood is a good choice for many new residents. If you're considering moving to Calgary, you may want to check out this neighbourhood for your new home.
