Charleswood Triwood Community Association2244 Chicoutimi Dr. N.W.
Located in NW Calgary, the communities of Charleswood, Collingwood and Triwood all belong to the Triwood community association. Charleswood was developed in 1959 and contains a considerable amount of green space. The community association was organized in 1961. Charleswood offers close access to the city's Light Rail Transit system and the city wide walk and ride pathway system. The Foothills Hospital, Jubilee Auditorium, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), McMahon Stadium Foothills Athletic Park and the U of C are also located near here. There is also a shared community garden maintained by volunteers. Nearby schools include Banff Trail Bilingual Elementary School (Public), Collingwood Elementary School (Public), Senator Patrick Burns Junior High (Public), St. Francis Senior High School (Separate) and St. Margaret Elementary & Junior High (Separate).
A Community Association membership is a great way to support your community. They are inexpensive and voluntary. A valid membership is usually required to participate in recreational, social and educational programs from soccer to girl guides, karate to yoga, stampede breakfasts to senior programs, movie nights and much more! Several Calgary recreation centres will also provide a discount for community association membership holders.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of our community. There are over 20,000 volunteers in the Calgary community association network, making it the largest volunteer movement in the city! Without volunteers we wouldn't be able to do the things we do. Volunteers are needed for programs, fund raising casinos, community association tasks, family events, community events, sports and much more. Please contact the association directly if you are interested in volunteering.
