Victoria Park is an inner city neighbourhood in the SW quadrant of Calgary. It was named after Queen Victoria, who is celebrated in a monument to the Second Boer War located in Central Memorial Park.
The 42 and 34-story residential Arriva project, the tallest condominium development west of Toronto; the Sasso and Vetro development; the Colours project; and the multi-use Hotel Arts Centre, suggest a vibrant and renewed future for Victoria Park, with a great deal of investment and interest.
The district is also one of the city’s most historic. Not only does it include two of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, but it is also adjacent to the Pengrowth Saddle Dome and the Stampede Grounds across MacLeod Trail, the site of Calgary’s annual Calgary Stampede which sees over 1.25 million visitors per year.
