Lincoln Park Real Estate – Homes & Condos For Sale
The Lincoln Park neighbourhood is in the south-western quarter of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It sits on land that once served as a World War II airfield for the Canadian Air Force. The name comes from a section of military housing that served that base. Mt. Royal University is the dominant feature of Lincoln Park.
Today Lincoln Park is one of the largest neighbourhoods in Calgary, made up mostly of apartments and condos. Most of the available housing is rental property. This lifestyle appeals to a number of people that prefer the lower maintenance costs associated with renting.
It is an irregularly shaped neighbourhood bordered on the southern end by Glenmore Trail SW for part of the way and Richard Rd SW and miscellaneous small streets for the rest. The Crowchild Trail SW is to the east, Richardson Way SW frames most of the north end and Sarcee Rd SW and 37th St SW share the western edge.
In addition to Mt. Royal University, Bishop Carroll High School, Sir James Lougheed School and St Andrew Elementary are nearby. The Grey Eagle Casino & Bingo venue is to the southwest. Lincoln Park Shopping Centre and the South West Calgary Market are the closest malls. Glamorgan Shopping Centre is to the north. The Richmond Green Golf Course is due north via the Crowchild Trail SW.
