Bowness Real Estate Listings and Information
The well-established community of Bowness is located in the northwest quadrant of Calgary. The population of Bowness is just shy of 12,000 with approximately fifty percent of the population between the ages of 35 and 64. The homes in the Bowness area are modest and largely weighted towards single detached, with a subset of apartments and a low number of semi-detached homes (City of Calgary, 2012).
Residents with children enjoy a large selection of schools to choose from. The River Valley School (JK-6), Belvedere Parkway School (K-6), Bowcroft Elementary School (K-6), Thomas B. Riley (7-9) and Bowness High School (10-12) are all within the community bounds.
Restaurants are plentiful and Market Mall is a convenient 5 minutes away hosting a diverse array of stores for the whole family.
Bowness borders Bowmont Park Natural Area, Baker Park and Bowness Park. Bordering the Bow River, Bowmont Park is one of Calgary’s premier parks with 164 hectares of land and several sporting fields. For the skiers, Calgary’s Canada Olympic Park is a stone’s throw away. Canada Olympic Park is home to the only ski hill in the city’s boundaries and a perfect place for the little ones to learn. For the avid skiers and adventure loving, the proximity of Bowness to the Trans-Canada highway makes for easy access to the mountains and Alberta’s national parks.
Bowness is located in close proximity to the Crowfoot LRT station. For the commuters, this is a 35-40 minute trip to the downtown core.
