The community of Renfrew is located within 3 kilometers of downtown Calgary and is directly accessible via Edmonton Trail. The community was not developed until the 1940s. During the Second World War, the area was occupied by a Royal Canadian Air Force training base and airfield which also served as the Calgary airport. Once the airport was relocated from its original site (on the corner of present-day 6th Street and Regal Crescent), the area was developed for residential use.
The community is bounded by to the north by 16 Avenue, CPR Tracks to the east, 7 Avenue, 9A Street and 8 Avenue to the south and Edmonton Trail to the west.
