Walk around this vibrant community and discover a thriving urban neighbourhood. You'll find independent retailers tucked into historic buildings, chic cafés nestled within innovative high-rises, sought after restaurants contributing to Calgary's exciting culinary scene, arts, entertainment and an energetic nightlife. Come see the rich history in which Victoria Park is deeply rooted; the urban setting that fosters business, residents and visitors.
Named in honour of Queen Victoria, Victoria Park was born in the early 20th century, making the area one of Calgary’s oldest communities. As such, the buildings throughout Victoria Park are alive with a history that has been incorporated into the urban feel the community boasts today.
With seven character areas defining Victoria Park, there is no shortage of differing histories, built forms, commercial activity and development opportunities. You can learn more about Vic Park and these character areas in our Planning and Policy Guide.
