Bowness was an independent town until 1963 when it was amalgamated with Calgary. It has its own Main Street, which has seen very little changes over the past 50 years. It has the quintessential 20th century North American town Main Street – extra wide to allow for diagonal parking and eclectic mix of one and two store shops in all shapes and styles.
Bowness has a rich history. It was home to Calgary’s first airport and it has one of Calgary’s signature parks – Bowness Park on the south shore of the mighty Bow River. In the winter the park is home to a wonderful outdoor skating rink that is one of the best in Canada.
Bowness has a population of 11,012 living in 5,313 dwellings. Residents in this community have a median household income of $40,468, and there are 24.1% low income residents living in the neighbourhood.
For its 11,012 residents, the Bow River and 100-year-old Bowness Park are main attractions, plus there is quick access to anywhere in the city, and within minutes residents can be on their way to the mountains via the Trans-Canada Highway. Today, the park is undergoing needed restoration, including a rebuilt miniature ride-on train, which will soon delight families again with tours of the park.
Bowness Park also features:
- Tea House
- Bow River access
- Picnic areas
- Firepits and BBQ stands
- Outdoor ice skating
- Cross-country skiing
The community also boasts easy quick access to other natural parks such as Edworthy and Bowmont. Residents enjoyShouldice Pool as well as the Atheltic Park in the community. COP (Canada Olympic Park) is right across from this neighbourhood, on the south side of 16th Avenue NW. There is always great winter and summer fun to be had at COP.
