Established in early 1914 Hillhurst is one of the oldest communities in Calgary, the first homesteads appeared in the 1880’s. The city set the lots to 25 feet which sold for about $300 in 1907. in the early days much of Hillhurst was a slough, as more and more people came dirt trails and wooden sidewalks gave way to paved roads and cement sidewalks. There are recreational areas nearby at both Hillhurst Athletic Park and Riley Park and the community boasts one of the most sought after commercial and social districts, Kensington.
