Ok, so where is this Vista Heights place? It's in the northeast, but not too far.  You will find it immediately north and northeast of the intersection of Deerfoot trail and 16th Avenue, south of 25th Avenue and west of 21 Street. It's represented by the number 166 on the map.

The residential community is almost completely surrounded by green space, including the Airways Park, which features a bike path and several ball diamonds.  

Here, we have a small population, just over 2000, mostly working-aged adults  They occupy a little over 800 dwellings. The neighbourhood forms part of the Crossroads group of communities, along with Belfast and Mayland Heights.  This area is part of Ward 5.

The downtown, golf course and Rocky Mountain views from this place are fantastic. The community association is also worth noting. It serves seniors very well with a variety of activities such as bingo and social events, but youth shall not feel left out. They have Scouts, Guides, sports and courses.

The location is extremely convenient. With Deerfoot and 16th Avenue, travelers can whiz off in any direction, including downtown or the airport just minutes away. Public transit is easily accessible too. Plenty of shopping can be found to the south, with just a quick drive to Deerfoot Meadows.  You'll also find great places to go in the north (CrossIron Mills) and the east, but the neighbourhood offers nice quiet streets in spite of its proximity to major transportation routes. 

It's easily affordable too.  And that is always good.

What schools serve the area? They have Vista Heights School for kindergarten to grade 6, Colonel Macleod School for 7 to 8s, Sir John Franklin School for grade 9s and then Crescent Heights High School just a kilometre or so to the west.  The elementary school offers a program called NSTEP which focuses on nutrition health education in many locations across Canada.  Good for them.

Catholic kids go to Holy Redeemer up until they reach grade six, St. Alphonsus or St. Martha for kindergarten to grade 9, and either St. Francis or St. Mary High School after that.  St Mary is south of downtown.
