Feature Community: Calgary, Alberta’s Aspen Woods
Located in the Southwest of Calgary, Alberta lies the community of Aspen Woods. Aspen Woods is filled mainly with residential detached homes, acreages, and breath taking views of the Rocky Mountains. This beautiful neighbourhood is close to city parks in the South of Calgary and has quick access to the mountains – a desirable trait for any who seek the outdoors. Since development in 2001, Aspen Woods is highly sought after for its quiet living and gorgeous properties. The community is a wonderful option for those starting out and looking to settle down, with a majority of the population being between the ages of 20-64.
Despite the quiet lifestyle of the community, there is plenty to do. Walking trails, recreation programs hosted by the SCA Community Association, or even driving to nearby parks such as Edworthy Park. Of course, if you are looking for a community with shopping, Aspen Landing Shopping Centre is a popular place to be. Filled with independent boutiques, diverse restaurants, a grocery store, and other services, everything you need is found in this “unique village concept centre.”
- Sometimes the best part of being part of a community is the new experiences and services available close to home. In Aspen Landing, take up a new hobby in the fine arts or sign your child up for music lessons at Music and Play. Here you can choose from a wide variety of lessons: music, theatre arts, dance, or performance. Learning new artistic skills and getting involved is an excellent way to truly enjoy what your community has to offer.
- If you are new to the area and are needing some new items for your kitchen or home, check out Kala and Lime! The store is fully stocked with the latest and most stylish kitchen products, or home décor items to make your space better.
- Nothing is better than the smell of freshly baked bread and a nice warm loaf to come home to. The Lady Bug and Café is the perfect place to satisfy that baked-goods craving, grab an espresso and relax. Their café features organic, homemade, and local goods that your taste buds will thank you for! Head on over to this European styled bistro for breakfast, lunch, or a snack!
Whether you are looking for somewhere to eat (fancy or casual), shopping for clothes (adult or child), or want to paint some pottery, Aspen Landing is the place to go! The beautifully rustic-styled shopping opportunity is located beside Marjan Lake and Hashem Pond – the water provides that “out-of-city” feel. If you want a community that is situated in nature and is away from the noise of the city, look no further than Aspen Woods.
Aspen Woods is the perfect community to take you out of the city without having to make a long commute. Only a short 15-minute drive from Downtown Calgary, it is the ideal location for business people. If you do not have a car, the 69 Street LRT station is easily accessible as a commute option.
