People who value a slower paced environment and family will love living in Oakridge. This part of Calgary is very quiet and the streets are peaceful.
Offering single family dwellings, townhouse condos, and an estate section, Oakridge has a home for everyone.
The greatest things about Oakridge are the parks & green spaces, large trees, wonderful schools, amenities, the people and being so close to nature. Oakridge is home to approximately 20 parks/playgrounds, borders the Tsuut'ina reserve and is just steps to the Glenmore Resevoir/Weaselhead Park. It is an active community with many residents taking advantage of the beautiful outdoors walking their dogs, roller blading, riding bikes, and playing at the outdoor rink. The Glenmore Sailing Club, Southland Leisure Center and F45 Fitness are close by and offer endless possibilities for an active lifestyle. South Glenmore Park hosts the Quinterra Legacy Garden, a x-country ski track, Pump Track and a Variety Park (Spray park & playground). Oakridge has a very active Community Association which offers a rink, squash and tennis courts, and a community garden.
Although Oakridge is not close to an LRT station, the new BRT can get residents downtown and to Mount Royal University quickly, there are also regular buses with stops on Palliser Drive and Oakwood Drive. With the completion of the SW Ring Road access is much easier and a trip to the new Costco or Westhills shopping center takes only minutes. Once the West portion of the Ring Road is complete getting to the mountains will be a breeze. Oakridge residents can access the Ring Road via 90th Avenue or Southland Drive.
