Established in 1914, Hillhurst is one of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhoods. The boundaries of the community include 8 Avenue, N and 16 Avenue N, 10 Street 2 W to the east, the Bow River to the south and both 14 Street W and 18 Street to the west. Most of the popular Kensington business area resides within the Hillhurst community and offers an active family-friendly area with amenities galore.
In 1907, Calgary set the size of the lots in Hillhurst at 25 ft. and these sold for $300.00 per lot. In the early days, Hillhurst was mostly a slough. As more and more people purchased and moved to the area, the dirt trails and wooden sidewalks gave way to paved / lit roadways and concrete sidewalks.
Hillhurst is presently a community with a population of approximately 5000. The small well-kept houses and treelined streets are the result of over 80 years of care and hard work. Hillhurst has seen a revival over the past few years with a host of new residential development, including single family homes and semi-detached homes by local Calgary builders.
