The community of Bowness is one of Calgary's most unique inner city areas. Ideally situated, Bowness combines a small-town atmosphere with the convenience of being only 10 minutes west of Calgary's downtown core, and a short drive to the majestic Rocky Mountains. Bowness is nestled along the Bow River Valley. In the heart of the community lays 100-year-old Bowness Park, one of Calgary's premier urban parklands, providing awe-inspiring beauty and a tranquil retreat in the middle of the city.
The picturesque views of the Bow River, as it wanders through a natural, protected hollow, sets this community apart, and Bowness is one of Calgary most preferred communities to live in. Perfect for the outdoor enthusiast, indigenous wildlife inhabits the Bowmont Park natural reserve, where you can meander for several kilometers on the Bow River Pathways.
