Currie Barracks, named in honour of Sir Arthur William Currie, was officially announced in 1933. The land, previously known as Reservoir Park due to its proximity to the Glenmore Reservoir, has a rich, extensive military history and lengthy connection to the City of Calgary.
Today, after participating in an extensive pilot program involving more than 240 communities across North America, Currie Barracks is the first Canadian community to receive gold certification for its approved plan (Stage 2). As a result, Currie Barracks is a community characterized by a diversity of land uses, walkability and sustainable design.
Clear Water Academy owns 7-acres and four buildings in the heart of the Currie Barracks site. Bessborough Hall, Harvey Hall, Keller Hall, and Athlone Hall. These names are original to these historic buildings, and honour the men and women of our Canadian Armed forces. We are proud to call Currie Barracks home.
