North Glenmore Park is a residential neighbourhood in the south-west quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is bounded by 50 Avenue SW to the north, Glenmore Athletic Park, Lakeview Golf Course and Earl Grey Golf Club to the east, Earl Grey Golf Club to the south and Crowchild Trail SW to the west.[2]

North Glenmore Park was established in 1959 as a subdivision after it was annexed by Calgary the previous year.[3] It is represented in the Calgary City Council by the Ward 11 councillor.[1]
