Cougar Ridge Condos
With Canadian Olympic Park and Paskapoo Slopes bordering the northern end of Cougar Ridge, it is no surprise that this is a hugely popular real estate market for Calgary home buyers. Located only a short distance away from the city center, this young but vastly developed neighborhood offers prospective home buyers a chance to enjoy every possible urban amenities within a slow-paced living environment.
Cougar Ridge Community
Cougar Ridge is an affordably priced neighborhood – with very affordable condos for sale, making it a popular choice for first time home buyers and young professionals. Residents will enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Calgary city skyline thanks to the position of the community atop a ridge. Located in southwest Calgary, it is bounded to the east by 69 street, 101 street to the west, and Old Banff Coach Road to the south.
A relatively young community, Cougar Ridge was annexed in 1995 by the City of Calgary, with the construction of the residential community beginning in 2001. Developers were careful to retain the natural pathway system and its entire natural beauty while developing it into a residential region. Cougar Ridge condos are beautifully planned modern structures, with the fairly popular Olympic Village a prime example of such. Much like Cougar Ridge Homes, condos can be found in different shapes and sizes.
Cougar Ridge Shopping
Cougar Ridge residents will have little worries when it comes to satisfying their shopping needs. The two ends of the community are laced with shopping amenities. On the one end, Crowfoot Center offers residents an opportunity to shop from some big-box retailers, with theaters also available for movie lovers. West Hills Town Center and the Bowness/Montgomery area can be found on the end with a number of smaller retail outlets and grocery stores available for shopping.
Recreation and Lifestyle
If you are in search of a residential community with lots of opportunities and amenities for outdoor recreation, then Cougar Ridge will serve just fine. Ski jump areas, a park for mountain biking, and bobsled and luge tracks are just some of these. Thanks to its natural slopes, grassland, and forests, it is home to the Canadian Olympic Park on its northern borders.
Also on the northern end of the community, Paskapoo Slopes serves as a historical, cultural, ecological and archeological site. Archeological findings here date back 8,000 years. The park boasts natural grasslands, forests, wildlife, and ravines carefully preserved over the years. With plenty of green space, walking trails, and amenities, this is a relaxing neighborhood.
