DouglasQuarry is located in Calgary’s southeast, and is comprised of the communities of Douglasdale, DouglasGlen, and Quarry Park. It encompasses the land along the east side of the Bow River between Deerfoot Trail and the community of McKenzie. The community was designed to make use of many of the area’s natural topographic features, including the Bow River escarpment. This has allowed for spectacular views of the river valley and the Rocky Mountains. Area residents enjoy recreational opportunities in nearby Fish Creek Provincial Park, as well as at the local golf course. There is also a lot of green space throughout Douglasdale. A separate school is located in the area
Although the DouglasQuarry Community Association currently lacks a community centre, it remains active within the community. It facilitates local sports programs, the most popular of which is soccer. There is also a local traffic committee to help study plans for the Glenmore Trail and Deerfoot Trail. Douglasdale also offers a teen program at Monsignor Smith School, where area teens can meet weekly for games of pick up basketball.
