It’s an attractive neighbourhood for outdoor enthusiasts looking for ample recreational opportunities, with its prime location next to Nose Hill Park, one of Canada’s largest urban parks.
Commuting to other parts of Calgary is stress-free as the community sits center in a ring of easily accessible major roads.
