Ken's Top 10 Reasons To Live On Beautiful Bow Crescent

1. Historic Charm

In 1911, when entrepreneur John Hextall registered subdivision plans for a village along the banks of the Bow River, little did he know it would one day become one of Calgary's most beloved communities, charmingly situated along the Bow River. Bowness became a village in 1948, then quickly graduated to town status in 1952, and was annexed by the City of Calgary in 1964.

2. Substantial Estate Lots

Bow Crescent is a unique, beautiful, tree lined street stretching 3 kilometers long, which still has many of its original one-acre estate lots and executive style homes. Considered some of the most sought-after properties in Calgary, homes here are nestled privately amid mature trees on expansive lots.

3. One of the Best!

The community of Bowness has been repeatedly ranked as one of Calgary's best communities. In Avenue Magazine's 2014 Top Ten Calgary Communities lists, Bowness was ranked 1st for park access, 3rd for friendliness, and 2nd for strength of community. Bowness was also ranked #1 in Alberta in the 2013 Canadian Real Estate Wealth Top 100!

4. Along the Bow River Valley

The tranquil nature of the Bow River, as it wanders through a natural, protected hollow, sets this community apart. Perfect for the outdoor enthusiast, indigenous wildlife inhabits the Bowmont Park natural reserve and off-leash dog park, where you can meander for several kilometers on paths along the Bow River.

5. Mainstreet Bowness

Mainstreet Bowness has a vibrant collection of family run businesses, including an eclectic mix of stores, eateries and coffee shops. Visit Salt & Pepper Mexican Restaurant, The Place Family Restaurant, Cadence Diner, Hexters Rock-n-Roll Blues Lounge, and Bow Cycle. Don’t miss the Bowness Lion’s Club Annual Stampede Parade and Breakfast, serving pancakes and sausages to over 6,000 Calgarians.

6. Convenient Amenities

Bowness is an amenity-rich area, including both public and private schools, a public library, Bowmont Medical and Travel Clinic, Community Centre and Sportsplex, as well as many clubs and organizations. Nearby is the Alberta Children’s Hospital, the Foothills Medical Centre, the University of Calgary, Canada Olympic Park, Market Mall, and the Crowfoot shopping centre.

7. Great Inner City Location

Bowness is one of Calgary’s most unique inner city areas. Ideally located along the Bow River Valley, Bowness has the ambience of a small town while providing the convenience of being only 10 minutes west of Calgary's downtown core, and a short drive to the exhilarating Rocky Mountains.

The Bowness Community Association and its dedicated volunteers provide excellent support to community residents through their newsletter, the Planning and Development Committee, and many organized groups, clubs, activities and special events for all ages, from young children to seniors.

Nestled in the heart of the community, Bowness Park continues to be one of Calgary’s premier parks, featuring awe-inspiring natural beauty since its days as a weekend retreat in the early 1900s.

Marketing Bow Crescent & Bowness for 35+ Years

When buying or selling real estate along the Bow River, look no further than to Ken Richter, a resident of Bow Crescent and a top selling Calgary real estate agent for over 30 years. Ken, as a RE/MAX agent, is second to none, selling over 120 properties along Bow Crescent. A truly amazing accomplishment considering there are only approximately 370 properties in the area.

I would rarely compliment or write a testimonial for a realtor—but in this case Ken is much more than a realtor—he is now a neighbor and a friend all because I can trust him and the information he gives me. He and his team are true professionals. They never engage in using high pressure tactics—just timely and frequent communications when appropriate. I will continue to use Ken for any future real estate purchases.
