Community Description

go to top ^

The community of   Shawnessy is located south of Fish Creek. Development began in 1981, primarily   in the form of single family housing. The east edge of the community includes   Shawnessy Town Centre, a major regional shopping destination. The community is   well-served by the Shawnessy LRT station, and Macleod Trail provides direct   access to downtown or a quick way out of town! Shawnessy is named after British   settler Samuel Shaw, who built a log house near Fish Creek in 1882. This history   lives on through the almost 100 year-old barn that is now home to the Shawnessy   Community Association
