Monthly Community Highlight: Oakridge

The community of Oakridge, developed during the 70’s, is an awesome place to call home for families and those who love the outdoor life. Located on the SW edge of Calgary, its mere steps away from Glenmore Reservoir and all that nature has to offer.

The reservoir features a recreational area, splash park/playground, shoreline, pathways, hiking trails in Weaselhead Flats and one of the city’s few pump tracks. The Glenmore Sailing Club and Glenmore Sailing School are popular and you can often see boats setting off from the many docks that dot the reservoir.

The western edge of Oakridge also offers new pathways built along with the new road leading right to the Stoney Trail extension giving easy access to the mountains via 22x or Highway 8 or a much quicker route for your downtown Calgary commute.

Approximately 5,700 people call this charming neighbourhood home and it includes housing from million-dollar estate living to convenient condo options. With an average home price of $612,770 there is something for everyone there. Oakridge is also home to many shopping, dining and medical services like Co-op, flower shops, medical facilities and a popular Calgary favorite – the Point pub.

Oakridge is definitely an oasis for outdoor enthusiasts and you can learn more about the city demographics here. Join me on Facebook and Google for more about all things real estate!
