Upper North Haven was established in 1991, decades after North Haven was already an established neighbourhood. Upper North Haven is in close proximity to two of Calgary's parks: Nose Hill Park and Egrets Park. The former is one of the most famous parks in the entire country while the latter is a great public space for hiking and biking.
The community is quite small and nestled at the base of Nose Hill Park. It has a sloping topography, which means great views of downtown Calgary.
Shopping centres are just minutes away from Upper North Haven. The community association has its own events centre where residents can organize parties and events. The Upper North Haven Calgary Community Association also hosts soccer trainings and fitness classes.
