Rosemont is a progressive, inclusive, family-friendly neighborhood which residents are proud to call their community. Rosemont, built in 1958, is located in the northwest quadrant of Calgary (bordered by Northmount Drive, Cambrian Drive, 23rd Avenue and 14th Street) and has about 1,200 residents. Confederation Park, Nose Hill Park and the pathway system are in close proximity and provide year-round recreational opportunities. The slopes of this neighbourhood allow for great views of the city and the mountains. Most of the housing in the area is single family dwellings. A few schools also see the residents.
Rosemont Community Association (RCA) serves the evolving needs of its residents and regularly brings them together through events, programs and services designed to enrich the community by promoting recreation and wellness and enhancing social and family ties. The computer access program, which works to ensure all Calgarians have access to computers, was a hit among seniors and teens alike. RCA now maintains a six computer lab to ensure residents have internet access. Other RCA activities include Tai Chi, Brownies, a Moms and Tots program, a Girls Art Day Camp, and the Rocky Mountain Ramblers. The community also hosts special events such as movie nights, pub nights and seasonal parties. They will soon be hosting their first community garage sale. Rosemont is currently working on two special projects: improving the condition of the Confederation Park Duck Pond and creating a memorial garden as a tribute to former alderman Eric Masgrave, a key figure in the park’s creation.
