The Edgemont Community Association was founded in 1980 as a platform for residents to serve in kinship and create change together. Member participation is paramount in making our community a great place for its residents. We are proud to have one of the most highly engaged and active communities in Calgary. By joining the association you can get to know the people and businesses in your neighbourhood, participate in community initiatives and programs, and be involved in its development. It is edged by steep escarpments at the southeast end of the community. Due to its elevation, Edgemont is exposed to more wind than the surrounding communities, but this elevation also provides exceptional views of Calgary and the mountains. Edgemont offers many recreational opportunities to residents including tennis courts, skating rinks, playgrounds, pathways and numerous ravines. There are both public and separate schools in the community.
Ensconced among the gently rolling hills and ravines of Calgary's northwest, nestled against Nose Hill Park, you will find the community of Edgemont. Developed in 1978, Edgemont is one of the city's largest residential districts; sprawling over 6.6 square kilometres with the largest number of parks and playgrounds of any neighbourhood in the city.
Citadel is located in Calgary’s northwest, and is designed so that the roads form the shape of a wheel with spokes. It is bordered by Country Hills Boulevard to the south, and Sarcee Trail to the east. It is a relatively new community, and was formed in 1993. There are many pathways in the community which emanate to the central hub where there is a large recreational green space. The central hub contains a scenic central park with tree lined pathways, a creative playground, an outdoor hockey rink, tennis and basketball courts, soccer pitches, baseball diamonds and open spaces.
Triwood Community Association is located at the base of Nose Hill between 14 Street N.W. and the community of Brentwood. The gently sloping topography of Triwood provides for views of the city at a number of locations. This community became part of Calgary during the 1910 annexation. Development of Triwood occurred around 1959 with single family detached housing forming the predominant land use. There is a significant amount of recreation space found within Triwood. The two larges areas of open space are Confederation Park and the City-owned Confederation Park Golf Course. There is also excellent access to the pathway and the L.R.T. system. There are both public and separate schools in the area.
Rocky Ridge Royal Oak Community Association is a small group of volunteers who meet regularly and work constantly to:
tackle and fix residents’ concerns;
review and adjust development applications;
watch out for environmental concerns;
run children and community based programs;
provide insurance for supported sport and area usage activities;
communicate area and city issues to the residents;
represent the community to the outside world;
communicate with the Ward 1 and 2 Councillors, the Member of the Legislature of Alberta, and with the Member of Parliament.
Please note that the City communicates overall area issues directly with the Community Association and does not necessarily recognize residents associations as the “voice” of the people.
If you enroll your child in a sports program in this community you must have membership so that insurance coverage is assured. If you join the Community Association voluntarily because you want to afford the association the operating budget to give good government representation, then we thank you!

How is the Tuscany Community Association related to the Tuscany Club/Tuscany Residents Association?
Our Community Association receives questions from many residents who want to learn more about the relationship between our Community Association and the Tuscany Residents Association/Tuscany Club. Although we often work together, these are actually different groups with independent purposes. Here is some information to help illustrate how these two Associations function:
– A community association is an organization formed by the residents of an area:
to manage and direct its social and recreational activities
TCA plans, develops and maintains some community programs such as Tuscany Soccer, Community Bookswap, Tuscany Sun, Amazing Chase and Race, etc.
to represent the community in civic matters (planning and development)
to plan, develop and maintain community facilities and amenities
not applicable at this time
membership is voluntary
all residents within the entire community of Tuscany are welcome to become members
– A resident’s/homeowner’s association is a compulsory organization created by a land developer:
to manage and maintain the “marketing” amenities (entrance signage, ornamental parks and ponds, boulevard landscaping and building) of a development that the City will not accept responsibility to maintain
to manage and maintain amenities such as lakes and golf courses
The Tuscany Club is run solely by the RA
membership is compulsoryand the requirement to pay an annual fee is collected by the association through a caveat on title
not all residents in Tuscany fall within the RA’s boundaries and so not all residents pay an annual fee and so, therefore, not all residents are members of the Tuscany Club
To promote and facilitate community activities that provide a sense of belonging, responsibility and fun while meeting the needs of the Arbour Lake neighborhood.
The Arbour Lake Community Association, like other community associations in Calgary, is a non-profit organization with a volunteer group of residents committed to representing the people of the community. Membership in the community association is voluntary! The Board of Directors is voted in by the membership and consists of a President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and Portfolio Director’s at Large. Anyone with a valid community membership may run for any position on the board. It is the ALCA’s responsibility to represent the wishes of the community in reference to all civic issues, including but not limited to: Transportation and Traffic, Law Enforcement, Bylaw Planning, Building and Rezoning, Civic Pride and Improvement, Funding Requests. The ALCA also organizes and contributes to sports programs, social functions, and arranges for the production and distribution of the community newsletter. Community membership fees and fundraising help cover the costs of insurance and other association expenses, including funding for a variety of programs and events that are run at minimal or no cost to community members. A thriving Community Association, with the involvement of community members, helps create a close-knit community, strong social involvement and community pride.
The idea for the West Hillhurst community association centre began in the forties when a group of men riding home on the old Grand Trunk Streetcar struck up a discussion about the state of the neighbourhood. They talked about the need for greater community cohesion and opportunities for children, and decided to form a community association in order to create playgrounds and provide other facilities for West Hillhurst residents. This group had good humour: they called themselves “The Grand Trunk Hot Shot League.” The first playgrounds were developed at 23 Street & 5 Ave and 21 Street and 2 Avenue N.W.
In 1948 the association joined the C.C.R.A. (Calgary Community Recreation Association) which sponsored softball and basketball teams in the city community leagues.
The Grand Trunk Hot Shot League’s slogans were “We can make our community ‘Big’ if we would all help just a little” and “People who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves seldom lose their shirts”. For the past 50 years, West Hillhurst has proudly nurtured and built upon the Grand Trunk Hot Shot League’s founding vision of a community association that that is the heart of the West Hillhurst community.
The community of Abbeydale is located in Calgary’s northeast. It is bordered on the South by the Canadian National Railway, on the West by 68th St. NE and on the North by the Trans Canada Highway.

The community has a large child and youth population and contains both a public and separate school. The neighbourhood is primarily residential, with its principal commercial attraction being a simple strip mall. Downtown can be accessed by either Memorial Drive or 16th Avenue.
