Pump Hill used to be part of the Palliser community. In 1991, it became a separate neighbourhood. It is bordered to the north by 90th Ave SW and Southland Drive to the south. To the east is 14th Street SW and 19th Street SW to the west.
Glenmore Reservoir is also located north of Pump Hill. This gives Pump Hill residents a natural place to enjoy water activities. Glenmore Reservoir is home to the Glenmore Sailing Club, Calgary Rowing Club, and Calgary Canoe Club.
For those not to keen on water activities, there are other entertainments in Pump Hill. The Southland Leisure Centre, for one, provides a multitude of activities for Calgarians. There are also great pathways to explore in the nearby South Glenmore Park, Heritage Park, and Weaselhead Flats.
