Where is the
community? Quite a way up northeast. Used to be a lo-o-ong way out, until that new freeway opened in 2009. North of 80th Avenue, up to 96th (some call the northern portion Saddle Crest
), between 52nd and 68th street and beyond, this place is one of the newest residential additions to the northeast. See the yellow number 100 on the map:
On what was originally acreages, suburban growth started sprouting up in the area around 1999 and is nearly finished. It is about two miles due east of the Calgary International Airport (YYC).
What's it all about. Quiet. Great family neighbourhood, new, safe and clean with shopping and other anemities, including transit. Handy. There are plans for LRT development out to this neck of the woods. The northeast C-train extension is expected to bring service to the Saddletowne Circle.
Calgary Saddleridge features solid real estate values, amongst the lowest of NE
neighborhood crime rates,
plenty of green space and improving access to the growing city. The Signature Estates area provides more upscale homes for those with such a preference. The Saddlebrook development holds similar promise. Some properties offer nice city views.
How is it for Children?
A new school and several playgrounds for the little ones are perfect for the area. And so will the new Genesis Centre Sports Complex with a pool, fitness centre and library.
Students can commute to Marborough School, Mayland Heights School, Bob Edwards Junior High and Crescent Heights High School for the time being, until newer schools are added in nearby locales. Catholic kids go to Msgr. A. J. Hetherington School, St. Wilfrid, St. Martha Junior High, Blessed John XXIII Jr High, and Bishop McNally High School.
Other services include the new Saddle Ridge Multi-services Centre, a much-celebrated city facility with fire, police and emergency medical services all in one centralized unit. Commercial services in the same Saddleridge Town Centre complex (surrounded by Saddletown Circle NE) include Scotiabank, Canada Post, Dentist, Safeway, Shoppers Drug Mart, Pizza 73, RBC, Boston Pizza and several others in various stages of development.
