Pineridge Calgary value and convenience

Search for Calgary communities


Here is Pineridge Calgary, in the southeast corner of "the Properties".  And like the other neighbourhoods in the area (Whitehorn, Temple, and Rundle), it was named after one of the features in the Rocky Mountain region to the west of the city.   

You'll find Pineridge right between 52 and 68 Streets as well as 16 and 32 Avenues. Marlborough Park lies directly to the south and Monterey Park is east on the other side of 68 Street.  Have a look at the number 153 on the map below.

This place started building up in 1974 and continued through the remainder of the decade. It has nearly 10,000 residents.

What does Pineridge have for those people? First of all, value and convenience. It offers some of the most affordable homes in Calgary, with excellent price-per-square-foot statistics (both inside the home and outside in the yard) and there are some attractive homes in the higher price ranges as well.

The community provides good access to transportation, with 16 Avenue, the Stoney Trail ring road, the northeast LRT line just west of 36 Street, Sunridge Mall, Superstore and Peter Lougheed hospital not too far off, with the airport and downtown less than 20 minutes away.

The Calgary walk and bike pathway enters and serves Pineridge, and the large complex containing the High School, Calgary Public Library, Village Square Leisure Centre, sports fields and ample shopping including the Calgary COOP store is sure to draw a crowd. In spite of all that, Pineridge is a quiet community on the whole.

Does Pineridge have schools? The public system has four schools right here. Pineridge Elementary and Douglas Harkness Schools take kids from kindergarten to grade 6, then they attend Clarence Samson Junior High School from 7 to 9 and Lester B. Pearson High School after that.

The Calgary Catholic School District has a few nearby as well. Kindergarten to grade 6 kids go to Holy Redeemer, St. Patrick or St. Martha, which also takes 7 to 9s. Otherwise 7 to 9s can go to St. Rose of Lima and high school students attend Father Lacombe, which is near Memorial Drive and 36 Street.
