The area was annexed by Calgary in 1963, and now Shouldice Park is a major athletic and family park surrounding the Shouldice Aquatic Centre and Arena.

History of Montgomery

In 1906 James Shouldice purchased a 480 acre ranch just west of Calgary in the area that is now the community of Montgomery. Shouldice was a wealthy businessman from Ontario who wanted to try his hand at ranching in Alberta. The fertile open fields of the Calgary area were the perfect place for his dreams to come true. The Shouldice family built a twenty-five room mansion on the top of the hill, overlooking what would become their legacy.

Shouldice was a true pioneer. Not only was he was one of the first Albertans to breed Hereford Cattle, but he is the reason the community of Montgomery came into existence. He and his family were the first settlers of present day Montgomery. Their ranch initiated an economic draw to the area. In 1910 they donated 100 acres of land along the Bow River to the City of Calgary, designating it as park space. This brought Calgarians in droves, much like what happened when John Hextall established Bowness Park. The area became known as Shouldice Terrace, named after its founder.

The Montgomery Community Association writes, “For many years this community existed as Shouldice Terrace. In 1943, some problems developed with the post office over the name… After a request for a name chance, the Shouldice family chose Montgomery, named after Bernard Law Montgomery of Alamein, a celebrated military leader from Great Britain who played an important role in WW1 and WW2” (A Hunt for History: Montgomery Memories).

Montgomery developed into its own little town, complete with stores, services and homes. People were drawn to its small town charm and gorgeous mountain views. By the 1960’s the town had grown as much as it could and had little infrastructure to support its 5,000 residents. In the end, Montgomery officially became part of Calgary on August 15th, 1963.

Not all Montgomery residents were happy to join Calgary. The Montgomery Community Association humorously notes, “According to the Albertan newspaper, a mock funeral [for an independent Montgomery] took place at the Town Hall lawn, and a councilor suggested the building could be re-used as a drinking establishment. The flagpole featured a pair of rubber firefighter’s trousers flying high… Local police cars with lights and sirens blaring sped down the highway until pulled over by the RCMP for speeding!”

This small town pride still exists today, marking Montgomery as a distinctly community-focused neighborhood that takes pride in its rich history and seeks to preserve it for generations to come.

For more information on the history of the area of Montgomery & Bowness prior to Shouldice and Hextall, please see our Bowness Community Page. Learn all about how this gorgeous land was formed, the indigenous groups that cared for it and the birth of the City of Calgary.

Montgomery Today

Montgomery is the gatekeeper of the City of Calgary. When you enter Calgary from the west on the Trans Canada Highway, Montgomery is one of the first communities you drive through. It is from Montgomery that the downtown core comes into view, glistening with potential and the spirit of the Wild West.

Montgomery has earned quite a reputation within Calgary for being an exclusive, inclusive community. What we mean is: the area is highly sought after and stands apart as one of Calgary’s top neighborhoods, but the people who live in Montgomery are welcoming and very focused on fostering a positive environment. Once you’re in, you’ll never want to leave. Not only will you gain a new home-sweet-home, but a community-sweet-community.

Montgomery is part of the Calgary’s Business Revitalization Zone. Businesses are encouraged to work together to create a stronger brand for the community, and with support from Calgarians, to thrive. Here are some local Montgomery businesses to make note of:

  • Dairy Queen: Though this is a chain fast food joint, the Montgomery Dairy Queen has become somewhat of a landmark since its grand opening in 1971. It is frequented by out-of-town visitors passing through and a very loyal local customer base who fondly recall years of stopping by on a Saturday morning for an ice cream cone.
  • Notables: Established in 2010 this Montgomery restaurant has not only made waves in this community, but city and nationwide. Notables is recognized for its beautiful fine-dining environment and incredible food. They partner with local farmers and producers to bring Montgomery authentic, home-grown food.
  • Allan’s Flowers: If you are looking for gorgeous custom flower arrangements and gift services, you needn’t leave Montgomery. Allan’s Flowers has been serving Calgarians since 1942, bringing fresh blooms and lush décor to homes. Stop by for the products, stay for the friendly staff.
  • Timbertown: Did you know Montgomery has its very own lumberyard? Timbertown has established itself as the best place in the area to serve your lumber needs. With high-quality materials and knowledgeable staff, it is no wonder why Timbertown has been a thriving part of Montgomery since 1981.

The Full Monty writes that Montgomery “now enjoys more than one hundred diverse shops, restaurants, businesses and health and wellness destinations. A strategic location choice for any up and coming business to ‘open up shop,’ Montgomery’s commercial district will continue to evolve… as [Calgary] grows.”

Shop Local, Shop Montgomery!

Montgomery has an incredible array of recreational facilities for residents to enjoy; some of the best in the City of Calgary, in fact. Shouldice park, named after the community’s founder, has soccer, baseball and football fields. There are batting cages and tennis courts, an indoor pool, and picnic sites along the Bow River.

Next to Shouldice Park is Edworthy Park, which includes hiking, biking and walking trails, play structures, a riverfront, off leash dog park and (most importantly) ice cream shop! The steeply rising slopes, amazing views, and access to the Bow River enhance Montgomery's unique location. Edworthy Park is extensive and perfect for any outdoor enthusiast!
