Albert Park/Radisson Heights is a south east community with a rich history. The community is named after Albert Smyth, who, with his business partner Mr. McCullough, promoted what was to be an exclusive subdivision including parks, a lake, windmills, a race track and gardens. In 1912, with sales lagging due to poor transportation to the area, Smyth and McCullough came up with a scam to lure residents. They laid railway ties to the town of Forest Lawn and started a rumour that a streetcar was to be developed. The scam was discovered, the railway ties were used for firewood, and the developers disappeared. From that point on, development of Albert Park, part of the town of Forest Lawn, was sporadic. Albert Park developed between 1908 and 1950, Radisson Heights developed shortly after Albert Park was annexed in 1960, and Radcliffe Village developed between 1976 and 1980. The Albert Park/Radisson Heights community is full of open space, offers easy access to shopping and major roads, and offers picturesque views of the Bow River Valley, downtown and the mountains.
Boundaries of the community are 16 Avenue to the north, 36 Street to the east, 17 Avenue to the south and Barlow Trail, Memorial Drive and the Bow River to the west.
