Bow Meadows Real Estate & Community Guide
Bow Meadows is an established community in Cochrane that was part of the big boom in the 90s. Nestled in a bend along the Bow River, Bow Meadows is the perfect neighbourhood for nature lovers, surrounded by stunning natural beauty and offering picturesque views of the Bow River, Jumpingpound Creek and Cochrane Ranch. Located just east of Cowboy Trail, this location is ideal for quick escapes to the mountains or the city of Calgary. Many residents here work in Calgary, and find it a quick commute, especially with Calgary’s new ring road.
The town of Cochrane has made its amenities convenient and easily accessible to its residents with the launch of its new On-Demand Local Transit System (COLT). This public transportation brings you to the heart of downtown Cochrane with its old western atmosphere of historic buildings, quaint stores and boutiques, art galleries, ice-cream parlours, and tunes filling the street from an outdoor piano.
