Settled on the southern most flank of the Westhills communities, much of Signal Hill enjoys spectacular, bright southern views, like this one.
The entrance to Battalion Park is located at 3001 Signal Hill Drive SW, there is a distinctive home and a gate to mark the top of the stairs. These stairs are enjoyed by running enthusiasts who love to trek up and down several times to get in top condition!
A few steps down and you’ll see on your left a landmark Geoglyph (a motif formed in stone). Its heritage value is to honor the heroic efforts of Albertan soldiers during World War I. The hill contains four geoglyphs, numbered 137, 113, 151, and 51. The large, whitewashed stones are unmistakable and are seen best from below in the Westhills shopping area. They represent the battalions numbered 137, 113, 151, and 51.
The location is outstanding as it is conveniently located next to so many amenities at the Westhills Shopping Center; groceries, hair salons, clothing, bakeries, book stores, coffee shops are all within a few minutes drive or brisk walk. If you’d like to go out for dinner and a movie, the Cineplex Odeon Movie Theater is located right in the center of Westhills Mall.
If you’re looking for a great pub to order a pint and relax with friends, the National has just opened up a new location just to the east side of the movie theater. Doesn’t that sound like a fun night out?
Just north of Signal Hill is the Westside Rec Center, the facilities and athletic programs for young and old alike at the Westside Rec Center are outstanding. Take your kids to enjoy the wave pool and slide or swim laps, the climbing wall or take group or personal lessons. Upstairs is a massive running track and programs include a state of the art Spin Class with virtual rides.
