Community Description

go to top ^

Falconridge and Castleridge are adjacent communities on the eastern edge of developed Calgary, east of the Calgary International Airport. They offer excellent views of both the city and the mountains. The Falconridge/Castleridge area was part of the Municipal District of Rockyview prior to its 1961 annexation to Calgary. There are numerous public and separate schools in the area, including Bishop McNally High School.

The Falconridge/Castleridge Community Association is one of the most active in Calgary. The Community Centre is home to the Northeast Family Connections. This organization offers social services to help families within the Northeast, which includes counseling, baby clinics, immigrant services, parent support and financial aid. Aside from the Resource Centre, the community centre also houses preschool classes (2 day, 3 days, and weekend), and an accredited Before and After School care program (Buzz Club). The Boys and Girls Club of Calgary has an office and recreational centre complete with pool and foosball tables located in the community centre. The Walsh and Langlois halls within the centre are home to a variety of groups, including the Brownies, Sparks, Karate, Gatka Self Defense, church & prayer groups and dance groups such as Epic Canada. There are also small meeting rooms which can be rented for training sessions, seminars, or small group parties.

There are also Seniors activities on Monday afternoons and FEE Line and ballroom dance lessons on Thursday evenings. These numerous programs enable the Falconridge/Castleridge community to appeal to the wide variety of interests and needs of their diverse residents.
