Albert Park / Radisson Heights Neighbourhood Information
The community was first established as a part of Calgary back in 1910, making this neighbourhood one of the few to celebrate a centennial of being part of Calgary.

The community’s borders are defined by Memorial Dr, Deerfoot Trail, International Ave, and 36th St SE.
The community of Albert Park / Radisson Heights has around 6,500 residents from year to year. It’s a pretty consistent population that hasn’t varied in size over many years. The community primarily lives in single-family homes, but it by no means the majority of the options. It’s a pretty even split between townhomes, duplexes, converted suites, and several apartment buildings as well. The people here have a high diversity proportion. The community is over 35% immigrant population, a very high percentage when compared to alternative communities in Calgary. This diversity also plays into the statistic of a slightly lower income and education level of the citizen living here. People in Albert Park / Radisson Heights have been keeping a fairly consistent moving schedule, with around 50% of the demographics living here for over 5 years. A good proportion of the residents have steady jobs and careers in the downtown, which is why they choose to live in this neighbourhood. But when the jobs move on, that opens up an opportunity for the next homebuyer to find a place here.
The Albert Park - Radisson Heights Community Association works in conjunction with the city of Calgary to offer a new avenue to build community pride. They work to create events and programs, often in partnership with the city, to use city facilities to hold barbecues, art showings, dance classes, family fun days, and several other initiatives. They also move to build community bonds between the people here, maintaining a strong and healthy neighbourhood through the partnership of the residents.
