Forest Heights Community Association

4909 Forego Ave. SE
Calgary, Alberta
T2A 2C4
403.272.0212

Forest Heights is one of Calgary’s most multicultural communities, so one of the challenges of its community association is to appeal to such a diverse group of people. The community offers jellybean dances, and hockey, and the facility is also used by a 50 plus club. Weekly bingos are also held. The community has a popular skating rink and baseball diamonds, and plans to add a horseshoe pit, new barbeques, a new skate shack, change room, concession and garage area. In addition to regular programs, each year the community hosts a Stampede breakfast.
