Nearly half of Inglewood businesses are either staffed by, and/or owned by residents of Inglewood. This means that many of those who live in the area, also work in the area; businesses and residents are closely intertwined. Calgary is an ever expanding city, but Inglewood - a downtown neighbourhood - has retained a sense of living in a village. Inglewood is a ten minute bicycle ride to the centre of Calgary. Cycling, walking and transit routes have extensive networks and are well used. Crime is low, vandalism is almost non -existent. Inglewood retains a diverse population, with more affordable housing units than any other Calgary neighbourhood, and a strong belief in all being welcome.
Inglewood has a strong environmental leaning, with many backyard chickens and bee hives in gardens. It is not unheard of to be cycling down a quiet street in Inglewood and see a chicken cross the road! It also has over six substantial city parks and a linear river pathway system.
Inglewood is also home to multiple events and festivals throughout the year. These include: Sunfest (attracts 30,00 people in one day), The Calgary Fringe Festival, The Bleak Mid-Winter Film Festival, Calgary Fringe Festival, Night Markets, Girls Night Out, Christmas In Inglewood, the Beakerhead science festival and Gallery Calorie.
The business area is also at the heart of a dynamic residential community. The Inglewood Community Association (ICA) represents the residential community and works closely with the Inglewood business area on everything from broad city policy to local initiatives, such as building playgrounds, the ICA rink, and multiple events.
Inglewood has been chalk full of interesting sights, one-of-a-kind destinations and family-friendly attractions since its historical inception back in 1875. While the community is home to Fort Calgary, the Calgary Zoo, Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery, the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary and the newly-completed Harvie Passage aquatic park on the Bow River, there is also plenty of exciting events and attractions to be found within the walls of more than 100 Inglewood-based shops and restaurants. Without a doubt, there is never a shortage of fantastic things to do in Calgary’s favourite inner-city neighbourhood.
