Marlborough is a residential neighbourhood in the northeast quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is bounded by the 16 Avenue NE (Trans-Canada Highway) to the north, 52 Street NE to the east, Memorial Drive to the south and 36 Street NE to the west.

The community is served by the Marlborough station of the C-Train LRT system, and Marlborough Mall is located in the southwest corner of the neighbourhood.

Marlborough was established in 1967, and was named after Marlborough, England. It is represented in the Calgary City Council by the Ward 10 councillor.[1]

The postal code in this area is T2A.

History

The northwest corner of the district was largely undeveloped when the community was first developed; a small motel was in existence on the southeast corner of 16th Avenue and 36th Street NE and a large open field was used for industrial/oilfield storage into the 1970s. The creation of a clover leaf exchange in the early 1970s at that intersection saw the motel demolished. In the 1990s, the final major residential development occurred as houses were added to the western portion of Marlyn Way.
