The TGCA is reopening, a bit at a time

We’ve taken many precautions and really thought things through, so we’re opening just a bit at a time to ensure our members’, staff and guests’ safety. 

Currently, we’ve got our bowling alley, racquetball courts, community bingo, The Forbes Innes Arena and The 56 open and we’re thrilled to see some familiar faces and new ones, too! There are many procedures in place but it’s still fun to come to the centre, so come down and see your neighbours and friends, or make some new friends!

When visiting the centre, we kindly request that you use one of the available sanitizing stations or washrooms to clean your hands upon entering the facility, as well as wear a mask unless eating and/or drinking at The 56 or in the bingo hall, or engaging in fitness activities. As directed by Alberta Health Services, if you have any symptoms of respiratory illness, you are to self-isolate for 10 days, and we’d be obliged if you’d return for a visit when you have been free of any symptoms for 10 days. 

We’re still working toward opening other facilities, so stay tuned because we’ll be making some announcements very soon! Thanks to you for hanging in there with us! 

Let's Build Something Together

The Thorncliffe Greenview Community Association is extremely active, with 1100 members and counting, and thousands of visitors annually. As a community association we serve the areas of Thorncliffe and Greenview, but we are proud to extend our membership to the greater Calgary area as well.

The association was formed in 1956, and has grown from a one room hall to a multiuse fitness and event centre. Our facility contains commercial catering and restaurant service kitchens, a restaurant-The 56, meeting rooms, offices, banquet halls and a seniors’ centre. For community recreation, the centre also houses 4 racquetball courts, 4 lanes of 5-pin bowling, The Forbes Innes arena-indoor skating, a baseball diamond, an inclusive playground, horseshoe pits, and a tobogganing hill.

Numerous community sporting activities take place at the centre, including racquetball, volleyball, slo-pitch, figure skating, hockey, ringette, baseball and bowling. A number of groups make use of the facility as well, including the Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, Before & After School Care, Tai Chi and fitness. Special activities such as dances, craft fairs, parties and wine and cheeses are also held at the TGCA. To raise money for all of these activities, weekly bingos are held on Sundays and Tuesdays. The local Booster Club and Women’s League are also instrumental in raising funds here.

The TGCA is located in north Calgary at the easterly base of Nose Hill Park and south of the community of Huntington Hills. Residents enjoy the continuation of the lower and gentler portion of the Nose Hill bluff system, having a foothills character affording views in a number of locations. The form of development which has occurred since the inception of our community in 1954 is predominantly single-family, interspersed with some duplex dwellings. Residents of Thorncliffe have access to Nose Hill Park and the pathway, which includes a route through the Nose Creek Valley.

People Look Forward to our Events all Year!

The TGCA provides a variety of community amenities combined with an extensive array of programs and year-round events and activities to promote and support our members and others who come to share and use our facilities in order to ultimately increase quality of life and community spirit of our area.

Largely due to the hard work of our events committee, our seasonal events are exceptionally popular and well attended by TGCA members and non-members alike. However, members of the association receive a discounted price on the tickets to these events, and advanced notice of dates and event details.

Typically, our seasonal events revolve around children, and rarely, do we ever have an event at which some form of special entertainment or activity isn’t included. The children and the parents tell us they look forward to our events all year long!

Membership at the TGCA

A strong community association is built on the foundation of its members, and the TGCA strives to bring ours more reasons to take advantage of what our association has to offer.

Over the years, the membership has worked hard to build one of the largest community centres of its kind in Calgary. Today, the centre is primarily used by the membership for recreational, cultural and social activities, such as weddings, seminars, religious celebrations, children’s programs, seasonal community events and more.

Your membership will include yourself, your partner/spouse, and any dependents/children that you have in your care-children over 18 years of age are required to have their own membership. It is an annual membership that begins the day you join or renew, and you will receive a secure profile and membership number.

Youth and Adult Programs
