Community Description

The community of Deer Run is located in Calgary’s southeast.  The Bow River and Fish Creek Provincial Park form the eastern and southern boundaries respectively.  Deer Run is well linked to the rest of the city via Bow Bottom Trail and Deerfoot Trail.  The area was annexed by the City of Calgary in 1961, however, it was not developed until 1978.  There are a number of recreational opportunities in the surrounding areas, including Calgary’s only public manmade lake, Lake Sikome.  There are also a number of green spaces and hills.  There is a public school in the area.

Deer Run houses a large community center that includes several multipurpose meeting rooms, a dividable gym, a preschool, a commercial kitchen, a racquetball court, an exercise gym, offices and storage.  The exercise gym includes a treadmill, stair climber, bike, weights and a stereo, and is open whenever the community center is.  Deer Run also has a paved hockey rink and pleasure rink, as well as baseball diamonds and soccer fields.  The centre provides a lot of programming for residents, including softball, soccer, preschool, an out of school program that offers foosball, computers and a library, yoga, karate, Jazzercise, Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, folk art and Blockwatch.  The community also hosts pubs and casinos, an annual Stampede Breakfast, and a Christmas craft fair.  The community is also constantly introducing new initiatives, one of which is the Membership Advantage program, which offers discounts at local businesses with the purchase of a community membership.
