Sandstone Valley is located northwest of Beddington Heights. Sandstone Valley was annexed to the city in two stages, in 1975 and 1979. Development of this primarily low density residential community began in 1982. Residents of Sandstone Valley enjoy outdoor recreation opportunities at nearby Nose Hill Park and on the pathway system.
The relatively young community of MacEwan is located directly north of Nose Hill Park and is bounded by Shaganappi Trail to the west, Country Hills Boulevard to the north and 14 street to the east. Land uses north of the community are generally agricultural, specifically grazing and cultivated land. The predominant land use within the community is single family residential. The topography of MacEwan may generally be described as an upland plateau surrounded by gradually sloping land, except for significant coulees which provide for intermittent natural drainage. The land comprising MacEwan was annexed to the city in two stages – in 1972, the southern portion of the community was acquired by the City, and in 1979, the remaining portion of the community was annexed.
