The community of Dalhousie is located in Calgary’s northwest. It is bordered by John Laurie Boulevard in the North, Shaganappi Trail in the East, Crowchild Trail in the South and Sarcee Trail in the West. Dalhousie is south of Nose Hill Park, to which residents have easy access through the city’s pathway system. The Dalhousie area was annexed by the city in 1961 and developed in 1967. It is close to regional shopping centres as well as the University of Calgary and SAIT. There are both public and separate schools in the area.
