Over in the northeast is this community:
This is the northeast corner of the larger area formerly known as "the Properties".
Temple has a population of about 11,000 and they live east of 52 street, west of 68th street and between 32 Avenue and McKnight Blvd. See the Number 158 on the map.
The Temple community hall serves this neighbourhood. People attend various courses and kids' clubs, sporting events, and dances at the hall. Temple features many parks, mature trees and recreational opportunities, including a reasonable walk to the Village Square Leisure Centre and Library just south on 52nd Street. Residents also appreciate the easy access to public transportation and shopping, several churches and a hospital close by as well as quiet streets away from traffic. This makes the neighbourhood great for raising kids.
Living in Temple
The 18 minute drive to downtown is quite reasonable as well, as most newer, more expensive neighbourhoods will have you commuting for much longer times than that. Drivers especially like the new Stoney Trail, 16th Avenue and McKnight Blvd for quick transporation. This, with the low housing prices and good transit access (about a mile to the Whitehorn station) help make Temple desirable for families entering Calgary and Canada for the first time.
What schools are there in Temple? Guy Weadick School and Annie Foote School serve the youngest children, kindergarten to grade 6. Then they could go to The Annie Gale Junior High or Dr. Gordon Higgins School. Senior highs will attend Lester B. Pearson. Catholic families have St. Thomas More and St. Wilfrid for K-6, Father Scollen and St. Martha for K-9 and Bishop McNally just north in Falconridge for high school students.
