West Valley Real Estate & Community Guide
Tucked away just west of Cowboy Trail is the quiet neighbourhood of West Valley. Access to paths, parks, commerce, and fun make West Valley an ideal location for a busy family or the family who loves to sit in nature. 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.

What You Need to See in West Valley
With Mitford Pond in your own backyard, there’s ample opportunity for seasonal outdoor fun.

Your dog will love the dog run adjacent to Mitford Park, and be sure to check out Mitford’s Paul Daniels Stage for an outdoor show.
