3 Reasons Why Calgary’s “Waldenites” Have It All
This friendly, well-designed neighbourhood has both urban and natural appeal.
Walden is a Calgary community that has it all: outdoor activities, great shopping, and a friendly vibe. Only 30 minutes away from city centre and a 10-minute drive to the Shawnessy CTrain station, this neighbourhood is also amazingly accessible. Here are three big reasons why we love Walden.
For outdoor enthusiasts, there’s a large pond and three km of walking trails weaving through the community — plus the regional path network that leads right into Fish Creek Park. Access to the Bow River, renowned for its world-class fishing, is only a few minutes’ walk, and nature lovers will find serenity and beauty (not to mention bird watching, rock skipping and shore walking) at the nearby wetlands area.
“Waldenites” (as they call themselves) can pick-up groceries at Save-on-Foods, grab a morning coffee at Starbucks or gather with friends at the local pub. The neighborhood also has a bottle depot, a dentist, a medical clinic, a physiotherapist and a pharmacy, and — for those days when you really need to be pampered — a spa. There’s also new commercial development in the works for 2018, which will bring large format retailers with a wide selection of amazing goods and services.
Small town feel
The neighborhood, which Waldenites describe as “peaceful and friendly,” is home to many young families, and the neighbours here look out for one another. Family and friends are treasured in this community, and there are homes to suit a range of different lifestyles. Whether you’re a first time buyer, moving up to your dream home or seeking peaceful retirement living, Walden has options to fit the specific needs of all residents.
Homes in Walden are constructed by an award-winning building group and supported by an extremely well designed community. Walden’s attractive gathering areas and open space networks allow people to get outside, run around and share meaningful experiences with their neighbours and families.
For all these reasons and more, it’s no surprise that Walden is one of the most desired neighborhoods in Calgary. From its impressive urban amenities to its natural surroundings, this amazing community delivers across the board. Find out how you can become a Waldenite today.
