Bel-Aire, simply put, is wealthy and exclusive. The minimum price for a home is $1.5M, with prices ranging up to $5M and beyond. The community contains zero renters or low income residents, something that is found in even very well-off communities in most other areas of Calgary. The community was built in 1960.
Public transport is of little importance to wealthy communities, but bus route three does serve the area with a single stop and a station at Heritage.
Parks & Recreation
Bel-Aire has no parks. A large portion of the Elbow River is located within the community, however, and the middle of the community has a small green space.
Shopping is available at Chinook Centre, and it’s mostly upscale. Stores include Le Chateau, Laura Petites, Zara Canada, Suzy Shier, Ricki’s Canada, Armani Exchange and Aritzia, amongst others.
Schools include Henry Wise Wood High School and Christopher Robin (separate).
Houses of Worship
Houses of worship include the Calgary Korean Baptist Church, the Shepherd King Lutheran Church, the Anglican Church of Canada, the SouthSide Victory Church, First Assembly Pentecostal and the First Evangelical Free Church.
