Walden Community Overview

Walden is a residential neighbourhood in the south-east quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is located near the southern edge of the city, south of 194 Avenue S.E. and the community of Chaparral. To the east it is bordered by the Bow River Valley, to the south by the community of Legacy, and to the west by Macleod Trail.

Developed by Genstar, Walden was officially approved by Calgary City Council in July 2007, with construction expected to commence in 2008.

The community covers 620 acres (2.5 km2), and is named after Walden, a book by Henry David Thoreau.

When completed, Walden will consist of three "villages", a 160-acre (0.65 km2) park system, and a nine-hole golf course.
