Mayland Heights

Crossroads gives prospective residents a chance to live in the inner city, close to downtown, 16 Avenue and Deerfoot Trail for a very reasonable cost.  The central location and access to efficient traffic thoroughfares is often appreciated by the residents in this community as well. 

With Deerfoot Trail nearby, the airport, deep south and Cross Iron Mills are all convenient to reach. And with Memorial Drive just to the south, downtown becomes a quick and easy destination as well. There is a C-Train station close by, giving even more options for commuting.

What about schools? In the public system, Mayland Heights School and Belfast School both have kids from kindergarten to grade 6. Grade 7 to 8 go to Colonel MacLeod School and 9s to Sir John Franklin School.

Senior high school kids travel to Crescent Heights High School, which is a bit to the west. In the Catholic system, the younger children, up to grade 6 start off at Holy Redeemer School, or St. Alphonsus or St Martha right up until grade 9. Older ones choose between St Francis High School or St. Mary's High School in the beltline.  A place of worship for this crowd is right in the neighbourhood, - Mary, Mother of the Redeemer on 14th Avenue.
