Coral Springs is located in Calgary’s northeast. The community’s name, layout, and architectural style are reflective of its Californian theme. The community contains a lake, which is popular for swimming, fishing and boating. Coral Springs was annexed by Calgary in 1983 and is home to plenty of green space and pathways. The variety of housing costs in Coral Springs has allowed the community to remain economically diverse. There is one separate school in the area.
The Coral Springs community association is located in the Don Hartman Northeast Sportsplex. The community association puts on a number of special events each year including an fall festival. The festival features activities for children, a petting zoo, climbing wall and games. The community association also hosts an annual community garage sale and Park n’ Play in conjunction with the Northeast Sportsplex and the City of Calgary. Coral Springs also works to represent its residents with regards to issues of concern. For example, the board advocated on traffic issues to receive stop lights and crosswalks which slowed traffic considerably. They also monitor area construction such as the Northeast Ring Road. The board also works together with a community liaison from Calgary Police Services to maintain one of the lowest crime rates in the city.
