Steps from parks, incredible views of the Bow River and countless kilometres of pathway for walking, jogging or cycling: Cranston’s Riverstone is an ideal spot to connect with nature and live a healthy, outdoor lifestyle. Here, it’s easy to get away from the hustle and bustle — without having to leave the city. With easy access to a range of outdoor activity options and plenty of space, staying close to home is a pleasure in Riverstone, a community by Brookfield Residential.
Here are just four reasons why Riverstone is the best place to call home, both during a pandemic and long afterwards.
Ideal for Active, Healthy Lifestyles
For Calgarians who value spending quality time in nature, Riverstone is the perfect fit.
“When we were planning the design of this community, we knew we had to build a community that was as breathtaking as its surroundings,” says Jessie Seymour, Brookfield Residential’s Senior Manager, Marketing and Community Experience.
As well as thoughtfully designed streetscapes, Riverstone boasts idyllic natural surroundings. An extensive pathway system leads walkers, runners and cyclists from their homes directly to Fish Creek Provincial Park, where residents can enjoy more than 100 km of paved and unpaved pathways in the second-largest urban park in Canada.
Plus, Riverstone is located at the edge of the Bow River, home to some of Calgary’s best trout fishing. And with seven parks within Riverstone itself, every home in the community is only 400 metres away from green space. There are endless opportunities to get outside and explore.
Access to a Wide Range of Amenities
It’s easy to embrace a healthy lifestyle here. The Residents Association for Riverstone offers private access to a variety of outdoor amenities, including a tennis court, basketball courts, a splash park and a playground. And the community’s 22,000-square-foot facility, Century Hall, has fun offerings for all four seasons. The outdoor hockey rink makes staying active during the chilly months easy and fun, and in the summer, the rink turns into a skateboarding park.
Seymour calls Century Hall the “gathering place for community,” adding that it was designed to connect neighbours. A range of family-friendly events and programming — including adult fitness classes and unique programs for kids like circus aerials and a STEM science program — are offered here and will relaunch when health restrictions allow.
Homes that Fit Your Needs
Riverstone’s home designs are recognized as some of the best around. In fact, homes in this community recently received recognition by BILD Calgary as a Finalist for Best Show Home Parade. And The Lucca, an estate show home by Brookfield Residential, won the 2021 Canadian Home Builders’ Association’s National Award of Excellence for best production kitchen.
Additionally, there are a variety of home types and price points, constructed by builders including Avalon Master Builder, Baywest Homes, Brookfield Residential, Calbridge Homes, Cedarglen Homes, Cedarglen Living and Trico Homes. With townhomes, single-family homes and estate home options, there’s something for everyone — from the first-time home-buyer, to the family needing more space, to the retiree looking to downsize.
Close to Urban Necessities
Everything you need is just minutes from home, including grocery stores like Sobeys and Cranston Market, coffee shops and local eateries like Berwick Public House and Good Earth Coffeehouse. Plus, the community is less than 10 minutes by car to Seton Urban District for even more shopping, dining and entertainment options.
