One of the Most Family Friendly Communities in Calgary
Originally named New Discovery, the beautiful community of Discovery Ridge was established on a piece of real estate formerly referred to as Jackson's Valley, located west of 69th Street S.W and south of Glenmore Trail, in the southwest quadrant of Calgary. This lifestyle community is surrounded with natural areas – from the original trees and open space retained by the developers to the nearby Griffith Woods Park, a City of Calgary designated Special Protection Natural Environment Park with the Elbow River winding through it.
Discovery Ridge is a mid-sized community with a population of only 4,462 people and 1,195 families. It offers a unique and serene style of living within the city limits. Because of the many parks, greens spaces and open areas, visitors feel like they have left the city and are in a sanctuary.
Discovery Ridge, Calgary is a master-planned community with a mix of condos and townhomes, plus retail and commercial spaces.

Or you can use the many recreation facilities to play tennis, soccer or basketball; ice skate, skate board or roller blade.

One of the great wonders of Discovery Ridge is the nearby Griffith Woods Park - an environmentally sensitive and significant 230-acre reserve of white spruce forest and natural wetlands. You can enjoy biking, hiking, rollerblading, running, horseback riding, wading in the rivers and throwing rocks, plus the opportunity to observe deer, rabbits, beavers, moose, squirrels, birds and more.
