West Terrace Real Estate & Community Guide

Riverfront homes with easy access to Cochrane’s downtown; the best of both worlds. West Terrace is a large community in Cochrane’s west end that is home to schools, playgrounds, and incredible views. Cochrane is one of the fastest-growing communities in Canada, but it still maintains its quaint, western-themed identity, as well as a gathering place for adventure activities. Walk downtown for the perfect ice cream cone, or visit the Cochrane Ranche Historic Site and explore history. Cochrane recently launched its Cochrane On-Demand Local Transit (COLT) system to provide public transportation to make the town even more accessible to its residents.

So Much to Love in West Terrace

West Terrace embraces fun, with multiple playgrounds to enjoy. Take a walk along the Bow River on an easy path, and connect to the Glen Boles Trail to find the Wenger Ancestor Table and Bench.

There are three schools in the area, including a French-language school, which give you options in your child’s education. A senior’s care facility is also close by, and you’re not far from local take-out places for the days you’d rather spend outside than in.

Cochrane schools are part of the Rocky View School Division, as well as the Calgary Catholic School District. If homeschooling is more appealing, there is an active network called Cochrane Home Educators. There is a total of eight elementary schools that service Cochrane, with one providing French immersion, two Catholic, and one francophone school. There is a middle school that provides French immersion and three high schools. Of those three, one school continues with French immersion, and one is part of the Catholic division. Within these schools, there is programming for religious instruction as well.
