Originally a working-class neighbourhood, Bridgeland is now a lively, 
bustling inner-city community.

Bridgeland is one of Calgary’s oldest inner-city neighbourhoods, yet it retains its close-knit, small-town feel without losing its energy.

The community on the Bow just northeast of downtown hasn’t always been known as Bridgeland, but it’s always been bustling.

Back when the neighbourhood was originally settled in the late 19th century, Bridgeland was named Germantown due to the influx of Russo-German immigrants looking for an affordable place to live away from the city proper. Soon, Ukrainians, Poles and Italians also gathered in this area, and, as Germantown became more cosmopolitan and diverse by 1908, its name was changed to Bridgeland.

People have always flocked to the area and the growth isn’t stopping yet: new restaurants and condos continue to spring up in and around where the General Hospital once stood, making it a neighbourhood that’s perfect for experiencing both old charm and new trends.
