Kensington falls within both Hillhurst and Sunnyside. Would it be possible to change listings such that the Hillhurst entry is now:

Hillhusrt/Sunnyside (includes Kensington)

The seperate Sunnyside entry would or course then be removed. Alternatively the referrence to Kensington could be removed.

When I insert this stub on a page it doesn't seem to allow any blank space before it in IE7. Any CSS wizards know why? Mark 06:38, 8 January 2007 (UTC)


Would it be possible and practical to break this up into 5 navigation templates (one for downtown and quadrant)? That way, we wouldn't need the show/hide feature, and people could more easily navigate between neighborhoods. Right now, this just seems to have to many items in a single box. --Rob 09:28, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

I agree with Rob. I don't like having a box I have to expand to use as most people don't realise it's there. Breaking it up into 5 templates makes sense to me, as long as each template included a link to each of the five areas at the top. Mark 22:31, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
The box was collapsed by default because there were too many red links, I've set it to auto now that the issue is past. I wouldn't support breaking up the template, it just doesn't reflect reality (Calgary IS a single municipality). --Qyd 20:28, 19 May 2007 (UTC)


I've added Mahogany to the SE list, pending the creation of a new article. It's definitely official as the developer has a website up and the name has also appeared on a few commercially sold city maps. I'll create the article once I've tracked down a non-commercial (i.e. City) web reference. 22:22, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

New articles needed[edit]

I recently picked up the 2008 "Sherlock's Map of Calgary" and it shows several new neighbourhoods for which articles will need to be written, such as the commercial area Jacksonport in the northeast, plus Northpoint (or Northpointe) Industrial. We're also missing two neighbourhoods that are already established: Lynx Ridge and Silverado, which I'll try and add when I have time. I will however add them to the template so the red links might spark someone to create the articles ahead of me. 23skidoo (talk) 00:59, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

  • OK, I've added the missing communities (including Silverado and Garrison Woods and the newly-announced Villages of Walden) to the template. I also removed the totally unnecessary HTML coding that was added to the links. In wikilinks there is no need to use any sort of HTML. 23skidoo (talk) 01:24, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
Those non-breaking spaces prevent the linked article titles to be spread/broken in two lines (keeps the link on the same line line), so it has a good use. --Qyd (talk) 02:05, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

While adding the names I discovered a news report about a new community called Villages of Walden here. It looks like that's its official name and it's a full-fledged community, despite its name which seems more suited for individual project development. If anyone wants to jump ahead and create an article, the link above should provide good starting material. 23skidoo (talk) 01:28, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

New communities are developed, then become neighborhoods as the city organizes them. Existing neighborhoods should show up on the relevant page at city of Calgary website. If it doesn't, it may just be speculation. Let's try to make a clear difference between developments and official neighborhoods. Cheers. --Qyd (talk) 02:10, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

It says in the article that Villages of Walden is a development. Non-residential areas are not listed here, but they are listed in List of neighbourhoods in Calgary. --Qyd 16:08, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
No, it's a residential community. I've confirmed that directly from the developer. The City's official name is just "Walden", however (the rest being promotional wording). I am adding it back to the template as construction of the community is supposed to have already begun according to the showhome manager in Chaparral across the street. I'll start a new article when time permits if someone doesn't do it before me. 23skidoo (talk) 00:43, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
I've created the article on Walden, Calgary. 23skidoo (talk) 06:41, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Lynx Ridge, Calgary has now been added, too. 23skidoo (talk) 22:03, 22 January 2008 (UTC)


The alphabetizing is all mixed up in a couple of sections, especially the SW. I tried fixing it but for some reason doing so messed up the formatting. I'll try and fix it myself, but if anyone wants to jump in and do it, feel free. 23skidoo (talk) 15:10, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
