Over in Calgary's northeast we have Falconridge amongst others. It is between Castleridge and Coral Springs, with Temple to the south and Taradale on the north. That is to say, the neighbourhood at hand lies between Falconridge Blvd (which is an extension of 52 Street northwards) and 68 Street as well as between McKnight Blvd. and 64 Avenue. See the yellow number 160 on the map.

Falconridge Map

The land was taken over by the City of Calgary in 1961, along with Castleridge and development here began in 1979, taking only a few years to complete. A little over 10,000 people live in the community.

What does it have to offer? Well it was intended to be and still is a great, affordable safe neighbourhood for young people just starting out with their first home and investors looking to build a real estate portfolio. It features many good sized townhouse condominiums which make for very cost-efficient living.

Why are these bi-levels so great to live in? Because of the abundance of light in the lower level from the extra large windows.

A Place for Falconridge People

This community also provides a good deal of convenience. Many properties are close to schools, public transit, shopping centre and other amenities, including an array of parks and playgrounds. With the NE Sportsplex, airport, Stoney Trail nearby, this community serves more personal needs than what immediately meets the eye.

The community association is home to the "North of McKnight" resource centre, where residents get all kinds of social services such as counselling, immigrant services, parental support and a variety of classes. Teenagers will like some of the recreational facilities offered at this location as well.

A well-established neighbourhood will have a variety of schools right at hand and Falcon ridge is no exception. Ship your kindergarteners to grade 6 off to O.S. Geiger School, the young teens to Terry Fox Junior High and the older ones west to James Fowler High School. Catholic kids go to St. Wilfred up til grade 6, St. Martha and Blessed John XXIII until grade 9 and Bishop McNally High School (right near the centre of this neighbourhood) afterward.


So, a culturally diverse area and it's good to see so many of the different interests and needs met. Go back from Falconridge to the Calgary Real Estate web page or visit the Calgary City Maps homepage.
