Community Description

go to top ^

Canyon Meadows is located in Calgary’s southwest, directly north of Fish Creek Park.  It is bounded by Anderson Road to the north, MacLeod Trail to the East and 14th St. to the West.  Canyon Meadows got its name due to its location on a rolling plane above the Fish Creek Park bluffs.  The area was annexed to Calgary in 1961 and two years later development began to occur.  Residents of Canyon Meadows have numerous recreational opportunities available to them, including the Canyon Meadows Gold and Country Club, the Canyon Meadows Pool and Fitness Center, and Fish Creek Provincial Park.  The area is also well connected to Calgary’s pathway system and has numerous commercial centers.  There are a number of separate and public schools in the area, including Dr. E. P. Scarlett High School.

The Canyon Meadows community centre is home to many different programs, including Tai Chi, Yoga, Jazzercise, Kumon math, dance classes, dog training, Brownies, Girl Guides, Moms and Tots, and Seniors Bridge.  The community centre also houses two skating rinks, one of which is paved to allow for inline skating and ball hockey in the summer.  There are also basketball nets, a skateboard ramp benches and playing fields.  Canyon Meadows has also been a powerful advocate regarding community issues ranging from development, to Fish Creek Park wildlife protection, to traffic, to LRT extension, to the Anderson Road overpass.  A fire in the Canyon Meadows community centre led to the need for current renovations.
