Wentworth is a small estate style community in southwest Calgary, Alberta. The unique features of Wentworth are its architectural treatment, tree coverage and ample green space. The community was developed between 2002 and 2008 and is home to under 1000 people. The community is composed of five units: Wentworth, The Willows of Wentworth, Wentworth Estates, Wexford Estates (now being built) and Wentworth Glen (under development).

Wentworth is contained within the larger community area of West Springs.

Wentworth was developed by Dundee developments except for the area of Wexford, which is being developed by the 7S Group.
