The Hamptons was established as a neighbourhood in 1990. It comprises the southern area, which was annexed in 1976, and the northern area, which was annexed in 1989. It has a high elevation, which allows residents to have one of the best views of Calgary.
There is no shortage of entertainment in the neighbourhood as it is home to some shopping complexes, sports fields, activity centers, and an Olympic-size hockey rink. It is also home to the Annual Stampede Breakfast, where residents enjoy a heavy pancake breakfast and some fun activities.
