Shop and Dine In Calgary's Own Greenwich Village

Residents and visitors alike enjoy supporting local businesses in this new northwest community with a village-like atmosphere.

Sure, you could book an almost five-hour flight from Calgary to New York to explore the trendy neighbourhood of Greenwich and check out the chic stores, popular cafes, and historic brownstones. Or, you can head to Calgary’s very own version of the village — and be home in time for dinner.

Greenwich is a new community in northwest Calgary named after New York City’s Greenwich Village.

“New York City’s Greenwich served as inspiration for Calgary’s Greenwich, and certain characteristics and attributes shared by both locations,” explains Erin Cripps, sales and marketing coordinator at Melcor Developments. “These include aspects such as urban vibrancy, cultural diversity, architectural style and a thriving walkability among shops, retail and grocery shopping.”

While Greenwich is a desirable community to live and work in, its location just across the highway from WinSport makes it easily accessible for all Calgarians looking for a cool new spot to shop and dine.

Shop local producers and suppliers

“Greenwich exudes a village-like atmosphere through a combination of factors that promote community engagement and a sense of closeness. One such aspect is the presence of the Calgary Farmers’ Market (CFM) West location, which fosters a local food culture and provides a hub for residents to connect over fresh produce and artisanal goods,” says Cripps.

After breakfast at Monki Breakfast Club and Bistro, head to CFM West to pick up fresh ingredients for the week from vendors like Spragg’s Meat Shop, Gemstone Grass-Fed Beef and Innisfail Growers. Stick around for a delicious lunch with flavours from around the world. Try a dish from the likes of Thai Mama, Anatolia Turkish Food or Hankki Korean Street Food (and, of course, treat yourself to dessert from one of the local bakeries or patisseries on-site, too). Or, head out into the community to support other local businesses, like Masala Bhavan or The Mash.

You could spend all day shopping, sipping, dining, even unwinding in Greenwich — that’s because there are so many great Calgary businesses to check out like Market Wines, Analog Coffee, Leela Eco Spa and Abbey’s Creations.

Modern conveniences in a quaint setting

Both Greenwich residents and visitors can also expect to find essential services here, such as Citizen Salon, Novo Optical, Poplar Dental and Holistic Institute of Health and Fertility. The bonus is that the design of Greenwich gives it a charming small-town feel, complete with welcoming green spaces.

“Greenwich’s emphasis on local amenities, pedestrian-friendly infrastructure and communal spaces, parks and plazas contributes to its distinctive village atmosphere,” says Cripps. “The neighbourhood’s walkability encourages leisurely strolls and chance encounters, enhancing the feeling of a tight-knit community.”

Make the Village Home

Greenwich is also a desirable new community to call home. Like its namesake, Greenwich’s housing offerings include brownstones, townhomes and luxury condos with eco-friendly designs and modern architecture.

“These unique housing concepts appeal to individuals seeking a contemporary and sustainable lifestyle, setting Greenwich apart from traditional neighbourhoods in Calgary,” says Cripps. Plus, Greenwich’s thoughtful design aims to support both active Calgarians as well as individuals with artistic lifestyles that Greenwich is known for.

“Melcor recognized that a thriving community requires space and time for both productivity and relaxation,” says Cripps. “By incorporating green spaces, recreational amenities and communal gathering areas, the neighbourhood encourages residents to nurture their passions, whether artistic, athletic or entrepreneurial, while also enjoying moments of leisure and connection with friends, family and neighbours.”

WinSport Winter Update

Calgary’s largest recreational multi park is right across the street from Greenwich and seasons are shifting to welcome the winter wonderland.  November 26 has been set as the tentative opening date for winter activities and December 27th for the new XL Park.

New in 2022-23 – the XL Park!

Our special on-hill competitive features are now the XL Park.

The XL Park provides access to the XL halfpipe (22 feet tall, 120 feet long) and the XL slopestyle course. These features are designed by a FIS (International Ski and Snowboard Federation) course designer for the World Cup events happening at WinSport this season and will be sure to test even the most talented skiers.

To access, you will need an XL Park hill ticket or an XL Park season pass. The XL Park Pass is an add-on to your winter season pass, or you can purchase a single day XL hill ticket to try out the park.

Winter hill season pass holders will get free access to the XL Park for the first two days of operation.

Greenwich Fall Update

Our Mutli-Use Park is Nearing Completion!

We are putting the finishing touches and final details on some of the fencing in anticipation of opening the dog park area.  With an off-leash dog park, basketball court, community garden and kids playground structure all included in this park, another fabulous amenity is almost ready for residents in Greenwich to enjoy year-round.  Come on out and enjoy the new playground area with the family.

Calgary Farmers' Market Now Open!

The recent grand opening of Calgary Farmer’s Market West was a massive success.  The 55,000 square foot building is Calgary’s newest destination for shopping local.  Open year-round, the West location hours are:

WinSport Gets an Upgrade

Greenwich occupies one of Calgary’s most envious locations, on the gate to the mountains and just minutes from downtown.  Calgary’s largest athletic, outdoor facility sits just across the street and Winsport is about to have a substantial redevelopment upgrade.  The proximity of Winsport and its continued development as a world-class recreational facility adds to the abundance of amenities at Greenwich’s doorstep.

It’s been 35 years since WinSport’s day lodge was first opened to be used as a media centre for the 1988 Winter Olympics.  Since then, it has done more than what was asked of it and went from a media centre to a hub that brought Calgarians together for over three decades.  The Government of Canada has announced that it will be investing more than $17.4 million to help transform the community hub.  The federal support comes through the Green and Inclusive Community Buildings (GICB) program.

The project will significantly enhance the WinSport visitor and guest experience for the next 40-plus years. Some known changes coming with the renovation will be improved access from the parking lot to the hill with the elimination of stairs; improved flow, accessibility and expansion of the rental shop and food court; the addition and renovation of washroom facilities to ensure accessibility and inclusivity; more deck space.  Construction will hopefully begin early next spring or summer following the ski and snowboard season. The entire project is expected to take roughly 18 months to complete.

Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting announcement!

Greenwich: A Cyclist's Paradise

A Cyclist's Paradise!

roads, trails, & mountain biking in and around Calgary

Whether mountain or road, Greenwich is located in the key location for biking access in and around Calgary.  Winsport across the street features Calgary’s only lift-assisted mountain bike terrain with adrenaline pumping downhill and even cross country trails leading into Edworthy park and the infinite river valley system.  Road-wise, popular rides span out to Bragg Creek and beyond, Cochrane or the national parks for the uber-committed types.

Biking resource wise, one of Canada’s largest bicycle retailers is a 10 minute bike ride from Greenwich.  Bow Cycle Opened in 1957 by Jim and Mary Sibthorpe, Bow Cycle was first established as a small bicycle and sporting goods store in beautiful downtown Bowness, Alberta (at that time, Calgary had not yet grown to engulf the smaller outlying towns and communities).   Since then family and eventually an ownership group comprised largely of employee owners have continued to run the business servicing Calgary’s riding needs.

While a lot has changed at Bow Cycle, a lot has stayed the same. During a radio ad in the early 1960s, Jim Sr. coined the phrase, “Bow Cycle, this is where the fun begins.” From that day forward, those words have served as the blueprint for how the business is ran. Bow Cycle and the riding options around Greenwich make for a perfect cycle oriented community.

Lock Up Your Bike

tips from Bike Calgary in partnership with the City of Calgary

While bike theft has always been an issue, the last couple of years have certainly seen an increase in bike theft. Bow Cycle would like to remind you to protect your bike. Whether you have a beat-up commuter that takes you to the office, or a custom-built machine that gets cleaned more than your car, lock it up when it is out!

Our recommendations

  • Choose the correct lock – Think about where you are locking it up and for how long. We suggest U-Lock for anything over a couple of minutes.
  • Always lock your bike – So much bike theft is a crime of convenience. Take those extra moments to lock it up and do it correctly. Lock it to something solid and not a pole it can be lifted over.
  • Lock your bike in a well-lit, busy area – this will make the less brazen think again.
  • Make sure you lock your bike to something that cannot be cut.
  • Lock according to value. That means frame first, then back wheel, and finally front wheel. Replace skewers with lockable axles and swap QR seat binders for allen key ones.
  • Make sure the lock fits snugly! The less room inside of the u-lock or chain, the more difficult it will be for thieves to use their tools.
  • Position your lock off the ground with the keyhole facing down. Make it difficult!
  • Make your bike unique. Replace one piece with something easily identifiable and difficult to remove. This makes identifying your bike easier.

Also, register your bike!

Parklovers Paradise in Bowmont Park

Green space is everywhere in Greenwich. Explore the nearby Bowmont Park.

Just west of Greenwich and a 5 minute cruise down Stoney Trail across the Bow River, lies one of Calgary’s most beautiful and nature abundant park areas.  The 164 hectare park was created in the early 1980s and named by joining the names of the nearby communities of Bowness and Montgomery.

The park features a number of natural ponds, hiking trails, picnic areas with tables, a designated off-leash area, Playgrounds as well as Baseball and Soccer fields.

Several projects are now underway to protect and improve the park including Compensation to the Fish Habitat, Updating Dale Hodges Park and Dog Bag Dispenser program.

Read the geological history of Calgary on the “walls” of this park. Bowmont contains a steep cliff face that illustrates several chapters of the city’s geological history. You can also see an unusual, spongy-looking, geological formation called “tufa”. Associated with the tufa is a three-metre-high waterfall. Near the waterfall is a scenic lookout over the Bow River Valley. This park provides an opportunity to experience a mature riverine forest with its abundance of flora and fauna.

Bowmont contains grasslands, valleys fed with permanent sources of water and bushy off-shore islands. There is also a mature Balsam Poplar riverine forest. This type of forest was once very common along river banks across the North American prairies. But, because these forests rely on periodic flooding for regeneration and most of the rivers have been dammed, the forests are under threat throughout much of their range.

The waters of the Bow River are home to species such as Canada Geese, Common Mergansers and several species of gulls. The trees and shrubs along the river are migratory routes for many species of warblers and vireos. There is ample evidence of the presence of beavers as many of the trees have been wrapped with wire to protect them from being chopped down. If you like amphibians, Boreal Chorus Frogs and Tiger Salamanders have been seen in the inland ponds.


At the top of the cliff face, you can see a thin layer of soil. This is the rich soil that nurtures the grasslands and crops that are so important in the European history of this area. Under the soil are 18 metres of sediment that were deposited on the bottom of Glacial Lake Calgary. The lake was formed as the last glaciers melted but the runoff was blocked by an ice dam further down the Bow River Valley.

Below the sediments lies the bedrock called the Porcupine Hills Formation. This bedrock was formed about 65 million years ago. When water percolates down from the surface, through the sediments it absorbs calcium carbonate. As it strikes the bedrock it flows sideways and exits out the side of the valley resulting in the falls in Waterfall Valley. The water then deposits the calcium carbonate on the algae covered rocks, producing the tufa.

Two sections of the park have undergone major changes. One area was used for agriculture and commercial greenhouses and the other for a gravel pit and concrete plant. These areas are being restored to a natural environment.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Enjoy Bowmont Park between the hours of 5am – 11pm daily.
