Abbeydale Location

It's in the city's far east between 68 Street and Stoney Trail, the CNR tracks and the Trans Canada Highway, 16th Avenue. About 6000 people live out here and this community boasts a lower rate of crime than most of the surrounding areas. The City of Calgary added the land used for this area in 1976 and development occurred throughout the 1980's.

It seems this is a great place for young families. The real estate is quite affordable and they have set things up for kids. The Abbeydale Community Association has a lot of kids programs. Day care, sports, dances, family skating outside, a BBQ, tennis and Scouts, to name a few. For those who are a bit older, they have darts, pool tables, pub nights and dinners. It is designed to fit the needs of those in the area.
