Windsor Park is located in Calgary’s southwest, south of the Elbow River between Elbow Drive and Macleod Trail. Residential development in this area occurred in the early 1940s, and the neighborhood was annexed by Calgary in 1951. Windsor Park is located close to a number of commercial centers, downtown and green spaces such as Stanley Park. There is a public school in the area.
Windsor Park community centre is used by a number of associations. Dance classes, Tae Kwon Do, Kung Fu, and various church meetings and functions all take place in the centre. Dance classes are particularly popular due to the center’s maple hardwood floors. The centre also boasts a creative playground, green space, two tennis courts, basketball courts, and a skating rink. The community association also hosts a number of special events each year, including the Family Day carnival, which includes a barbeque, skating, games, and face painting. A summer barbeque is also held each year. Windsor Park community association also acts as an advocate for residents regarding development issues.
