The Downtown West End is a neighbourhood within the western portions of downtown Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is bounded to the north by The Bow River, to the east by 9th Street W, to the south by the CPR Tracks and to the west by 14th Street W. West End is a high density residential community, largely made up of condominiums and apartment buildings, with only 25 single-family detached homes remaining in the neighbourhood.
Downtown Calgary was established as a neighbourhood in 1884, after the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1883. It is represented in the Calgary City Council by Ward 8 Alderman John Mar, on a provincial level by Calgary-Buffalo MLA Kent Hehr, and at federal level by Calgary Centre MP Lee Richardson. The Shaw Millennium Park, Telus World of Science and Mewata Armouries are located in the western area of the neighborhood, while paved multi-use (bicycle, walking, rollerblading, etc.) paths line the northern rim along the Bow River.
