Bridgeland Community Overview

Bridgeland (formerly known as Riverside) is an inner city neighborhood in the north-east quadrant of Calgary, Alberta.

It is bounded to the south by Memorial Drive and the Bow River, to the east by Deerfoot Trail and Tom Campbell�s Hill, to the west by Edmonton Trail and to the north by the community of Renfrew. It is located immediately northeast of downtown Calgary and north of the Calgary Zoo.

A major redevelopment dubbed "The Bridges" commenced in 2004 on land previously occupied by the General Hospital and is underway as of 2007. It is a 37 acre inner city development, consisting of multi-family residential and mixed use buildings. The project includes 11.7 acres of parks and open space.

The Bridges is a transit-oriented development (TOD). The three phase project is located next to the Bridgeland-Memorial LRT station which is on the 202 Whitehorn/City Centre line of the city�s LRT, the C-Train. Early success of the project has seen it become an example development for cities interested in creating TODs.

Bridgeland is services by St. Angela and Langevin Community Schools.
