Killarney Community Overview

Killarney, also known as Killarney-Glengarry, is a residential neighbourhood in the city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is bounded by 17th Avenue S.W. on the north, 37th Street S.W. on the west, Richmond Road S.W. on the south, and 25A Street S.W. on the east.

The first subdivision plan for the community of Killarney was registered with the Alberta Land Titles Office in 1906, and the lands were formally annexed by the City in 1910. Development before the Second World War was slow; most houses built at the time were one-storey clapboard structures. The community was filled out in the post-war era, when developers erected hundreds of small stucco and clapboard bungalows on the 25- and 50-foot (15 m) wide lots. Since approximately 2002, developers have been replacing the older structures with medium-density infill housing on a piecemeal basis.

Westbrook Mall, a small regional shopping centre featuring Wal-Mart and Canada Safeway, is located directly north of the community. There are also numerous shops along 17th Avenue and 37th Street S.W.

The community has an area redevelopment plan in place.

  • Holy Name Elementary School (Bilingual) (separate school board)
