Full of young energy in the SW
Named after Glengarry County, Ontario, where many of its original residents hailed from, Killarney-Glengarry is a haven for young people looking to launch into their adult lives. It’s considered an affordable first post-school neighbourhood. You know, the one where you realize that toilet paper doesn’t just appear in the bathroom and bemoan the price of groceries. Killarney-Glengarry is getting an overhaul over the next few years though, which will likely change the cost of housing and, with it, the face of the neighbourhood. For now, though, it remains the go-to spot for youngsters to begin building their adult lives.

Life & Style
Life in Killarney-Glengarry is about making choices and memories. Residents work hard on their futures – and equally hard on their adventures. These are young professionals, looking to establish themselves in their workplace, meet or marry the loves of their lives, and settle down in preparation for starting their families. At the same time, these are millennials and post-millennials, who don’t want to give up on experiences to build their futures, so expect to see them out at parties and events, even on work nights. Basically, life here is like an episode of The Bold Type.
Killarney-Glengarry is largely a community of adults, though there’s a sprinkling of families with young children. Most residents are in their 20s and 30s. They have big plans and even bigger dreams. Good news for those still searching for their special someone – there’s a large single community. Don’t worry, though, couples aren’t uncommon either. Education levels are a touch above average, while incomes are a hair below. Bus routes run along just a couple of major streets, but drivers are a short hop away from Crowchild Trail SW. There are a number of schools in Killarney-Glengarry, as well as the Killarney-Glengarry Community Association.
While there are a few parks, they are small and give limited green space. A few churches are sprinkled throughout the neighbourhood. In terms of shopping or dining, head up to 17th Ave. Just north of the neighbourhood is Westbrook Mall, while, slightly further afield, are a couple of golf courses.
Perfect for: Singles and couples in their 20s and 30s.
Not-so-perfect for: Seniors and families with older children.
