Eau Claire Calgary Real Estate

The downtown Calgary neighbourhood of Eau Claire is ideally located south of Prince's Island Park and immediately north of city's central business district. Eau Claire takes its name from the Eau Claire and Bow River Lumber Company, which was established beside the Bow River in 1886. This riverside community had humble beginnings with just a mill, workers' homes and a few factories. Today, everything except the old red brick smokestack chimney and the original 1886 Eau Claire Lumber Company building (home to 1886 Buffalo Cafe), have been replaced by upscale condominiums, office towers, restaurants and shops. Real estate in Eau Claire consists of everything from luxurious penthouse condominiums with stunning Bow River views, to spacious executive townhomes, as well as, affordable apartments.

Living in Eau Claire, Calgary

The prestigious community of Eau Claire, Calgary provides easy access to the natural surroundings of Prince's Island Park, the Bow River pathways system, as well as, excellent shopping, entertainment and recreational opportunities. Prince's Island Park is the perfect spot for a walk, lunch or listening to music at one of the many festivals the island hosts in the summer. The island was actually created in the late 1880s by the Eau Claire Lumber Company who carved a channel in the Bow River to power the sawmill's waterwheel.

When the City of Calgary created an urban park on the island, it was named Prince's Island, in honor of Peter Prince, the first manger of the Eau Claire and Bow River Lumber Company. The 20 hectare park is like a little slice of Central Park in downtown Calgary with paths, a wetland environment, grassy areas and the River Cafe. Park goes can enjoy a fabulous meal at the River Cafe, in the heart of Prince's Island. Its charming atmosphere, locally sourced meat and seafood entrees, and delicious seasonal Canadian cuisine makes the upscale cafe one of Calgary's best restaurants.
