Greenview


The community of Greenview was part of Thorncliffe/Greenview until 1991. At that time, two areas separated from Thorncliffe/Greenview to be established as separate communities. A small area of land form the western part of the community became known as Upper North Haven, and the eastern portion of the community is now Greenview. The boundaries of Greenview are quite irregular but generally it is located southwest of the Calgary International Airport. A substantial proportion of land in Greenview is occupied by industrial uses and the Canadian Pacific Railway line runs through it.

The Thorncliffe – Greenview community association is extremely active. The facility contains a commercial catering kitchen, a lounge, meeting rooms, offices, racquetball courts, and a seniors centre. For community recreation, the centre also houses a 4 lane bowling alley, an outdoor hockey rink, a baseball diamond, a playground and a tobogganing hill. Numerous community sporting activities take place at the centre, including racquetball, volleyball, slo-pitch, figure skating, hockey, ringette, baseball and bowling. A number of groups make use of the facility as well, including the Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, Timeout for Parents and Tots, Tai Chi and fitness. Special activities such as dances, craft fairs, parties and wine and cheeses are also held at the centre. To raise money for all of these activities, weekly bingos are held at the centre. The local Men’s Booster Club and Women’s League are also instrumental in raising funds.
