Established back in 1956, the community in Britannia is home to some of the most luxurious properties in the entire city of Calgary.
Given its strategic location with the city, Britannia offers a quiet and tranquil living experience with easy access to restaurants, shopping complexes, walking trails to the famous Glencoe club.
In Britannia, the British theme running through the area is obvious. Here you'll find street names like Coronation Drive, Elizabeth Road and Edinburgh Boulevard. The local architecture and landscaping shows off a variety of British styles.
Residents of Britannia can walk to restaurants, shopping centres, river pathways, sports facilities and schools. The community boasts its own local grocery store and a small shopping village called Britannia Plaza.
Britannia is bordered to the west by Riverdale Park, traveling along the Elbow River; the park has pedestrian bridge access to River Park, Sandy Beach Park, and Altadore Park, providing easy access to outdoor activities from picnics to jogging to simply taking in the fresh air.
