Facilities & Parks
Mount Royal features wonderful parks, green spaces and recreational facilities, to serve our community needs.
Community Hall: Our ‘Station’ House, centrally located in Mount Royal, offers a gathering space for community members and is our operational ‘hub’ for the community association and many activities. Available for rental and perfect for social, business and activity gatherings, this space can be rented by MRCA members for a modest charge. Click here for details.
Despite our inner-city location, our community boasts 6 parks, including 1 off leash area. We also have nature lined walking trails which connect neighbouring communities of Elbow Park (add link) and Cliff-Bungalow-Mission (add link), enabling easy access to city river pathways, the Glencoe Club, MIssion-4th Street business area and 17th Avenue.

Two schools, one elementary (Earl Grey) and one junior high (Mount Royal) serve community children and youth and also provide adjacent recreational space and facilities.
We have two playgrounds that serve as gathering spaces for pre-school and school-aged children and their families. One is adjacent to our Community Hall (Station House’) and another is found at the Earl Grey School yard.
There are two MRCA-operated tennis courts (see tennis add link here) and basketball courts are popular for all ages, located at the Station House and also at Mount Royal School. In winter, an outdoor ice rink is maintained adjacent to the community hall also.
