As per the Government of Alberta guidelines, Albertans are prohibited from attending public recreational facilities including Community Centers. The PBP Community Center is closed for all events and will remain so until we are advised otherwise. We have take this step to help limit the spread of the Covid-19. We will attempt to keep you updated through our website, email, Facebook & Instagram pages and our Twitter account. Our top priority is the health and safety of our community. We must do our part to flatten the curve and give our health care system the best chance to respond to the rapid spread of the virus.
Now more than ever, being neighhourly, is incredibly important, please check in with your neighbours in a safe "socially distant" manner and help out if you can. Luckily, we have so many electronic tools (plus the phone) to stay connected with friends and family. Make sure you use them to help with the isolation. Please contact your community association if there is anything we can do to help. We are very grateful for our community and we know that concerned residents are willing to help other residents as needed. In the meantime, remember to keep your hands clean and stay positive.
Your PBP Board of Directors.
ABOUT OUR COMMUNITIES
Bayview is situated in the southwest sector of the City along the southeast edge of the Glenmore Reservoir.
As the name of this community suggests, many residents enjoy views of the reservoir. There are many outdoor recreation opportunities within the vicinity of Bayview including boat docks, the pathway, Weaselhead Flats hiking trails and South Glenmore Park. Heritage Park Historical Village is also a popular venue for Calgarians and tourists. Vehicular access to the downtown and other parts of the city is provided by Heritage Drive, Crowchild Trail and Macleod Trail.
Bayview developed into a primarily single family residential community in 1967, although the land was annexed to the City of Calgary in 1956.
The community of Palliser is named after Captain John Palliser, an early explorer and surveyor in western Canada. Accompanied by a botanist, a doctor, an astronomer and an artillery officer turned naturalist, John Palliser lead an expedition to survey the land mass between Lake Superior and the Pacific Ocean.
Because of Palliser’s significance in Alberta history, his name adorns such varied features as the Palliser Mountain Range near Banff and the stately Palliser Hotel in Calgary.
The community of Palliser is located in the southwest sector of the City. The pathway links Palliser to the Glenmore Reservoir and its many recreation opportunities, such as boat docks, Weaselhead Flats hiking trails, South Glenmore Park and the Heritage Park Historical Village.
Palliser encompassed the community of Pump Hill until 1991. At that time, the community was split along 19 Street S.W. to form Palliser to the west and Pump Hill to the east.
Although the area known as Pump Hill developed in the late 1960’s, it was not established as a community district until 1991. The community of Palliser originally encompassed Pump Hill.
The pathway system links Pump Hill to the Glenmore Reservoir and its many recreation opportunities, including the boat docks, Weaselhead Flats hiking trails, South Glenmore Park and the Heritage Park Historical Village.
