Wildwood Community Overview

Wildwood is an established neighbourhood in the Southwest quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It was developed in the 1950s on a plateau to the south to the Bow River valley, and is primarily composed of single-detached bungalows on wide lots with rear laneways.

Wildwood is bounded on the north by Edworthy Park, a significant natural area park in Calgary, and the Bow River. It borders the neighbourhood of Spruce Cliff on the east side at 37th Avenue SW, and is limited on the south side by Bow Trail, a (soon to be) six-lane expressway.

Between 2006 and 2009, Bow Trail is being widened to accommodate more suburban traffic.

The community is served by Wildwood Elementary public school.
