GLENBROOK

Glenbrook Community is a small community, less than a mile square,  located approximately 8 kms south west of the city centre, and it is known for its quiet secluded streets. The area is comprised mainly of single family dwellings and duplexes. It is just south of the community of Glendale, as well as Optimist Park, which provides various recreational facilities for the whole district. There are views of the gentle sloping Strathcona Heights and the Rockies in the west from a number of points in Glenbrook, and especially from the knoll just north of the Co-op Shopping Centre.
