West Hillhurst Community Overview

West Hillhurst is a northwest neighbourhood lying within the inner suburbs of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The community, which is located west of Hillhurst, is bisected by Crowchild Trail. On the north, West Hillhurst is bordered by the communities of Hounsfield Heights/Briar Hill and St. Andrew's Heights. Other boundaries are 18th Street W to the east, the Bow River to the south and 28th Street W to the west.

Although annexed by the city of Calgary in 1907, substantial development did not occur until 1945 when many of the houses were built as "Victory Homes" for soldiers returning from World War II. A number of these buildings are still standing despite the fact that many were only intended to temporary.

In 2006, there were two schools in the district:

  • École Madeleine d'Houet Bilingual Junior High School - A Separate Catholic school
  • Louise Dean Centre - A public high school for new and expectant young mothers throughout Calgary.
