About

The heart of a thriving community that fosters a sense of belonging

We are a volunteer organization that represents the interests of the residents who live in the Queensland Diamond Cove neighbourhood in Calgary, Alberta.

We are here to listen and promote a unified voice for the community and provide a sense of belonging.

Our Community Association lobbies for schools, acts as a political advocate and is responsible for working with the City of Calgary on a wide variety of community issues such as traffic, playground zones, city park issues, etc.

Welcome


The heart of a thriving community that fosters a sense of belonging!

We provide a welcoming place for information, events and services through partnerships and an accessible facility for all members of our community.
The Queensland Community Association (QCA), supports the day to day operation of the community.  We are a volunteer organization working together to create a passport to all the great happenings in the Queensland Community.  Our members and volunteers are dedicated to bring a safe, happy, strong and solid environment for all of its residents.

QUEENSLAND

The community of Queensland is located in the southeast sector of the city of Calgary, overlooking then Bow River. Its boundaries are, south of Anderson Road, east of Bow Bottom Trail and north of Canyon Meadows.
The entire escarpment overlooking the river has been designated as public open space in order to maintain the natural characteristics of the area and to provide for public access to the river. The Queensland Downs area was annexed to the city in 1961, yet it was not until 1973 that the development began to occur. Two more development phases began at this time. Bow Bottom trail was a dirt road and the shopping center that is now known as “Deer Valley Shopping Center”, was a Gravel Pit.
Single family residential dwellings are the prominent form of development in the community with some multifamily dwellings.

The Queensland Community has two public Schools in the area:

Haultain Memorial Elementary School:
Queensland Drive SE | 403-777-6860

Wilma Hanson Junior High
Queensland Drive SE | 403-777-7430

DIAMOND COVE

Diamond Cove is a community located in the southeast sector of Calgary. The boundaries are: east of Bow Bottom Trail, south of Anderson Road, north of Queensland Community and west of the Bow River. The land of this small community was carved from the Queensland Community in 1991. Diamond Cove is bounded on the west by Bow Bottom Trail, which provides direct access to major routes such as Deerfoot Trail and Anderson Road.
With the many bike paths, picnic areas and all of the beauty of nature, this is a wonderful area for the residents of Queensland and Diamond Cove to enjoy each season of the year.
