Sunnyside is an innercity community in Calgary, Alberta located on the north side of the Bow River immediately adjacent to Calgary's downtown. The community partners with the neighboring community of Hillhurst to form the popular area known as Kensington.

Kensington is a Business Revitalization Zone and the communities of Hillhurst and Sunnyside have an area redevelopment plan in place.

Kensington has seen a revival over the past few years with a host of new residential development by local Calgary builders. Kensington by Bucci, St Johns by Streetside, and LIDO by Batistella will add over 20,000 sq.ft. of new street-level retail as well as approximately 240 residential condo-style homes to the neighborhood. Encompassed by the areas of Hillhurst and Sunnyside, Kensington is an active family-friendly area, abundant with amenities.

Sunnyside runs from the north bank of the Bow River (Memorial Drive) to Crescent Road and M .C. Hugh Bluff Park in the north, and between 4th Street NW in the east to 10th Street NW in the west. Sunnyside real estate is a mix of older character homes, newer infills, and apartment-style condos.


Together with Hillhurst, Sunnyside encompasses the popular Kensington districts, which is made up of trendy cafes, shops & boutiques.

Local recreation includes tennis courts, sports fields, gymnasium, Hillhurst Athletic Park, Riley Park, and the riverside pathways.
