Brentwood, just outside the perceived “inner city” NW boundaries, is a highly sought after community to live in. Known for its plentiful schools, shops and services, and an LRT station, Brentwood is regarded as a strong family community where often people settle in for many years. Its not uncommon to meet community members who have resided in the neighbourhood since the the 1960s or 1970s. Being close to the University, It also has a slightly higher than city average number for rental properties. These make up about a third of the community’s properties.
Many Brentwood streets are lined with mature trees creating stunning avenues in the summer and autumn. Brentwood residences are made up primarily of bungalows and the occasional split level. In recent years, condominium towers have been developed at Brentwood Mall’s University City complex. There are plans for more towers to be developed over the next few years, adding new design, retail and vibrancy to the community.
Brentwood services include a fantastic sports area (Brentwood Sportsplex), a public pool (Sir Winston Churchill) and branch of the Calgary Public Library (Nose Hill).
