Springside Community Overview

Wentworth is a small estate style community in southwest Calgary, Alberta The unique features of Wentworth are its architectural treatment, tree coverage and ample green space. The community was developed between 2002 and 2008 and is home to under 1000 people. The community is composed of five units: Wentworth, The Willows of Wentworth, Wentworth Estates, Wexford Estates (now being built) and Wentworth Glen (under development).

Wentworth is contained within the larger community area of West Springs.

Wentworth was developed by Dundee developments except for the area of Wexford, which is being developed by the 7S Group.

Springside is an area adjacent to Wentworth. Although not officially part of Wentworth, Springside contains many streets by the same name.

The main area of Wentworth features a variety of single family homes on standard sized lots as well as several multifamily condominium and town house buildings. The Willows of Wentworth is a unique estate area of luxury homes where the natural aspen forest has been protected via a bare land condiminium. Wentworth Estates is a newer area of estate homes on large lots. Wexford is more ore less just an extension of this area. Wentworth Glen is the final phase of Wentworth. This area will likely feature mostly higher density housing.
