Northwest Calgary Communities
If you love spending your weekends in the mountains, NW homes for sale in Calgary should spark your interest as getting to and from the Rockies is quick-and-easy when living in this district. But wait, there's lots more!
The Northwest is characterized by picturesque communities with tree-lined streets, ample green spaces and interconnecting pathways that serve to connect families with other families. Many of the areas closer to downtown were established in the 40s and 50s while those near the brim of the city have much newer construction homes to choose from.
Inner city areas like Crescent Heights and Capitol Hill, for example, are seeing several new infill projects pop up everywhere. Brim-of-the-city neighbourhoods like Rocky Ridge and Tuscany are upscale in nature with more spacious lots, plus an incredible selection of condos and townhouses to choose from.
Then there's the up-and-coming University District, where you'll find strictly multi-family mixed in with commercial and retail spaces just steps away from the University of Calgary. It's no wonder that many people choose to browse NW Calgary homes for sale when thinking about making a move.
Northwest Calgary Parks & Amenities
Large city parks are found throughout the northwest of Calgary, providing opportunities for outdoor leisure and recreation for most of the year. Some riverside parks along the Bow River, like Bowness Park and Bowmont Park for example, have their pathways cleared during the winter as well for year-round use.
Two YMCA's, one in Crowfoot and the other in Rocky Ridge, provide lots of indoor recreational services. The latter was recently constructed and is one of the most all-inclusive recreation centres in the city.
Communities like Arbour Lake, Rocky Ridge and Tuscany are critically acclaimed for their interconnecting parks and pathways amid the beautiful rolling foothills of the northwest. Varying elevations with spectacular views along these pathways are distracting and can make the time fly by.
