The Community of Queensland in South Calgary
Nestled in the beautiful Southeast sector of Calgary is the popular community of Queensland. First annexed to the city in 1961, development didn't actually begin until 1973. The majority of dwellings first created were single-family homes, although there are condos, multi-family homes, and apartments sprinkled throughout the neighbourhood as well. Due to the fact that many properties were built in recent years, the majority have modern amenities and updated styles for added curb appeal. Many even have unique characteristics and landscapes that add to the overall charm of this neighbourhood.
Also incorporated into the neighbourhood is the young community of Diamond Cove Estates. This area was separated from Queensland in 1991 with the majority of real estate being built in the years that followed. The homes in this part of Calgary are generously spacious, elegant, and custom made for each homeowner. This has made Queensland the ideal location for home buyers with all types of budgets, as there is a nice mix of stylish homes listed for sale in Queensland.
Beyond the appeal of the residential dwellings lies the gorgeous natural setting that this sector of the city is well known for. The location near the Bow River provides excellent views of the sparkling water and the fields just beyond. With Fish Creek Provincial Park bordering the neighbourhood as well, residents have no shortage of gorgeous scenery to enjoy.
Amenities and Highlights of Queensland
Although recreation is a huge draw for Queensland residents, they also enjoy the convenience of being located near major highways and trails. These make it easy to get to the many nearby communities as well as the excitement of downtown Calgary. For shopping, the Deer Valley Mall and Macleod Trail are two popular spots within close proximity. These offer a wide range of local boutiques as well as big box stores to accommodate every need. For even more retail opportunities, the Avenida Mall and Southcentre Mall can be reached in just a few minutes.
Commuters will appreciate Queensland's public transportation, which quickly and efficiently takes riders all over Calgary. However, those who drive will find that it’s easy to get around without much traffic thanks to the many different access roads in close proximity. Bow Bottom Trail, in particular, connects to Deerfoot Trail and Anderson Road, both of which have many entertainments, retail, and healthcare businesses.
Residents of Queensland can arrive at the beautiful Fish Creek Provincial Park in just 5 minutes. Within the park, there is a wide array of features to take advantage of, including park space, exercise paths, a lake, barbecue pits, and wildlife watching. Those who want to stay closer to home can use the nearby pedestrian bridge to access walking trails along the Bow River Pathway, which offer incredible views all year long.
The community of Queensland has a very involved community centre that hosts activities all throughout the year. This includes activities for residents of all ages, including senior programs, bingo, sports classes, and holiday events. The community also has skating rinks, tennis courts, and sports fields that can be utilized all throughout the year.
