is one of the most desirable places to live and work in North America. Covering just over 1,500 square miles, it has a large, diverse land area, which almost envelops Calgary on the eastern, northern and western parts of the City. Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with wide-open prairies and wheat, barley, rye, canola, timothy and alfalfa fields there are breath-taking views of the snow-capped Rockies (hence the name!). Over 1,000 farms operate in the area, which are generally devoted to either livestock or crops and a fair number of golf courses and camping grounds are available for recreational use.
Strategically located on the “Calgary-Edmonton Corridor”, it also boasts world-class amenities such as Calgary International Airport, the fourth busiest airport in Canada, and the ever-expanding Cross Iron Mills Shopping Mall with over 200 anchor stores. With a rapidly increasing population of over 35,000 people enjoying local attractions like Calaway Park, the historic town of Bragg Creek and its’ provincial park and three rural airports, the quality of life is exceptional.
All of these neighborhoods have tremendous advantages in their proximity to Calgary, with all the facilities that a dynamic and prosperous City can offer, and to the Rockies, where world-class skiing and tourist atrractions are just the ticket after a hard week's work.
