The community of Queensland Downs is located in the southeast sector of the City, near the Bow River. The entire escarpment overlooking the river has been designated as public open space in order to maintain the natural characteristics of the area and to provide for public access to the river. The area comprising Queensland Downs was annexed to the City in 1961, yet it was not until 1973 that development began to occur. Single family residential dwellings are the predominant form of development in the community, with some multi-family dwellings.
Diamond Cove is a new community located in the southeast sector of the city directly west of the Bow River. The land comprising this small community was carved from the community of Queensland in 1991. Diamond Come is bounded on the west by Bow Bottom Trail, which provides direct access to major vehicle routes such as Deerfoot Trail and Anderson Road. Residents of Diamond cove enjoy close proximity to Fish Creek Provincial Park and all of its recreation opportunities.
