Bridgeand

 

The neighbourhood of Bridgeland-Riverside (formerly known as "Bridgeland" and "Germantown") of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is located to the immediate northeast of downtown Calgary. It is bounded to the south by the Bow River, to the east by Deerfoot Trail, to the west by Edmonton Trail and to the north by the community of Renfrew.

The community is primarily residential with a mix of parkside condominiums and single-family houses. Bridgeland contains a variety of restaurants, food markets, retail shopping, offices, financial services, churches and schools. The Calgary Zoo, Telus Spark, The Bridges urban renewal development and access to the city's large network of pedestrian pathways (theBow River pathway) and parks are unique focal points for the community and surrounding region.

Bridgeland borders a natural environment composed of the confluence of the Bow River and Elbow River. Tom Campbell's Hill park lies on the eastern edge of Bridgeland and overlooks the downtown, Bow River and northeastern part of the city. St. Patrick's Island and St. George's Island lie in the southern part of Bridgeland. St. George's Island is home to the Calgary Zoo, Canada's second largest zoo.

Bridgeland is the site of the Telus Spark, a $160-million facility that opened on October 29, 2011 and Canada’s first purpose-built science centre in more than 25 years.

A recent redevelopment plan with upscale condos & townhouses has transformed this area into a thriving community. Bridgeland also has a large selection of single-family homes.

While some believe the building of the Langevin Bridge in 1885 was where the name came from, Bridgeland actually was named after the company Dominion Bridge Company, which operated and employed many Calgarians at the time. Back then Bridgeland was a red-light district that wasn't part of Calgary. The old General Hospital, which was opened in 1910 and demolished in the 1998, is now the site of a large condo development (The Bridges).

BRIDGELAND AMENITIES

Bridgeland is a pedestrian-friendly community that was recently listed as one of "Calgary's five most livable neighbourhoods" in Fast Forward Weekly Magazine. The southern portion of Bridgeland is full of shops and labeled "Little Italy" due to its many wonderful Italian restaurants. Also, nearby is St. Patrick's Island, Calgary Zoo, and several sports and recreation facilities.
