When you consider major cities across Canada, Calgary stands out as a great place to live because of its proximity to the Rockies, its world-class events and amenities, and its reputation as a well-designed, impeccably clean city. And these four neighbourhoods in and around Calgary are desirable communities you’ll want to call home.
It’s no wonder Calgary’s slogan is “Be part of the energy.” You can feel it in the air.
If you already live in or near Calgary, you know how great the city is. But you may not be familiar with these great new Calgary-area neighbourhoods. All four of them deliver comfort, adventure and —you guessed it — an unbeatable energy to everyone who lives here.
If you’ve heard the term “master-planned community” and wondered what the fuss is, Carrington is all the proof you’ll need.
Surrounded by pathways connecting to the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway, Carrington is more than a collection of homes. It’s a beautiful neighbourhood with its own idyllic park, parkside shops and services, trails, recreation zones and deluxe playgrounds. Every element of this community has been thoughtfully designed, helping shape life in this incredible place.
Arrive in Yorkville and immediately feel the warm welcome of brick brownstone townhomes inspired by tradition. Throughout the neighbourhood, you’ll notice the wonderful character houses, especially the 36-foot-lot single-family homes — each one is built with cement siding, making them super-resilient to Alberta’s four seasons.
Existing green spaces, and inviting parks and pathways, lead to the well-planned Central Park: it features a five-acre pond, walking bridge, fountains, art structures, skate park and more. Hop in your vehicle and the 22X highway easily takes you downtown or to the mountains.
Imagine looking out to a 115-acre environmental reserve that links to the longest urban pathway in North America. You’ll find that here, at the heart of master-planned Cityscape, along with parks, playgrounds, three planned schools, and a multitude of recreation facilities — all within walking distance.
With homes starting in the upper $200s, your family’s dream lifestyle is more attainable than ever in Cityscape.
While Southwinds, a community of townhomes and single-family homes, is located outside Calgary city limits, it is only about 25 minutes from downtown Calgary and is a fantastic neighbourhood well-deserving of a mention in this roundup.
Built upon a reconstructed four-acre nature reserve — the first in southwest Airdrie — Southwinds is a sustainable community integrated with nature. Special care was taken to design appealing streetscapes and a central green space featuring a picnic area, shaded plaza and playground, as well as skating and tobogganing in the winter.
As you can see, Calgary and the surrounding area has some amazing neighbourhood options, all of which deliver everything your family needs “to be part of the energy.”
When it’s time to find your new home in the Calgary area, make sure Carrington, Yorkville, Cityscape and Southwinds are on your list!
