The Thorncliffe Greenview Community Association is extremely active with over 800 members and thousands of visitors annually. As a community association, we serve the areas of Thorncliffe and Greenview and we are proud to extend our membership and access to the facilities to the greater Calgary area as well.

The association was formed in 1956, and has grown from a one room hall to a multi-use recreation and event centre. Our facility has a variety of amenities, including meeting rooms, offices, banquet halls and a seniors’ centre-The Thornview Seniors’ Centre on the south end of the complex, commercial catering and restaurant service kitchens, and a restaurant-The 56. Look for recreation options? The centre also houses 4 racquetball courts, 4 lanes of 5-pin bowling-which are quite popular for children’s parties- 4 pickleball courts from May – August, The Forbes Innes arena indoor skating rink, and there’s a baseball diamond, inclusive playground, a disc golf course, and a tobogganing hill and beautiful green space just steps away.

Numerous community sporting activities take place at the centre, including racquetball, volleyball, slo-pitch, figure skating, hockey, ringette, baseball and bowling. A number of groups make use of the facility as well, including the Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, The Fun Kids Club Daycare, Tai Chi and group fitness classes. To raise money for the centre’s upkeep and staffing, weekly bingos are held on Sundays and Tuesdays. The local Booster Club and Women’s League are also instrumental in raising funds at the TGCA.

The centre is located in north Calgary at the easterly base of Nose Hill Park and south of the community of Huntington Hills. Residents enjoy the continuation of the lower and gentler portion of the Nose Hill bluff system, having a foothills character affording views in a number of locations. The form of development which has occurred since the inception of our community in 1954 is predominantly single-family, interspersed with some duplex dwellings. Residents of Thorncliffe have access to Nose Hill Park and the pathway, which includes a route through the Nose Creek Valley.
