Downtown Lethbridge is naturally the city’s oldest area. When citizens moved out of the river valley at the end of the 19th century, they relocated to what is now downtown.
Perhaps not surprisingly, downtown has relatively few single-family homes. Residences are primarily medium- to high-density, ranging from low-income housing to retirement and care homes. Apartments, condos, loft suites, and converted boarding houses make up the bulk of the housing options downtown.
Amenities: Lethbridge residents can find nearly every type of service and business here, including restaurants, boutiques, grocery stores, retail chains, and medical, and government services. The police and fire departments have their headquarters downtown as well. The only park downtown is Galt Gardens, and it is a hub of activity year round, hosting festivals of all kinds and for all ages.
A true destination, downtown Lethbridge boasts a large public library, art galleries, nightclubs, and a movie theatre. The neighbourhood is also a transportation hub, with quick access to three major roadways (Crowsnest Trail, Whoop Up Drive and Scenic Drive), as well as the local Greyhound station and the main transit terminal.
Schools: There are no schools in the neighbourhood, but Fleetwood Bawden Elementary School is within walking distance.
