Where it is
2233 8 Ave. S.E.
This home is located in Inglewood, which was established in 1875. Initially known as East Calgary and Brewery Flats, Inglewood earned its official moniker in 1911, when it was named after Colonel James Walker’s nearby homestead. One of Calgary’s earliest pioneers, Walker was also responsible for setting aside a section of land that would eventually be used to build the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, which now encompasses 36 hectares of wildlife reserve for birds, animals, insects and local plant life. Today, Inglewood is a hub for arts and culture, and it is home to a wide variety of restaurants, breweries, shops, festivals, walking trails and more.
