Rideau Park

Rideau Park, Calgary is an inner-city neighborhood located in the southwest quadrant of the city. Rideau Park is a highly desirable neighborhood and one of the finest communities in Calgary’s inner city. Rideau Park was established in 1911 and features many historic properties that date back to the first half of the century. The neighborhood has long been a destination for Calgary’s wealthiest citizens.

Rideau Park features hilly, secluded terrain and is bordered on three sides by the Elbow River, so it’s scenic and quiet. Since 1967, Rideau Park joined with the neighboring community of Roxboro to become one community. Rideau Park is home to approximately 650 people, while Roxboro is home to around 413 people.

In Rideau Park’s early days, a physician and developer named Dr. Neville James Lindsay built a large sandstone mansion on an escarpment on the east banks of the Elbow River. Due to financial problems, only the foundation and main floor of the mansion were ever constructed. If you visit the area today, you’ll find remnants of the sandstone mansion. The area where the foundation of the mansion remains offers gorgeous views of the city and the mountains.
