Community Description

go to top ^

Willowridge is located in southeast Calgary and contains the communities of Maple Ridge and Willow Park. Willow Park is bordered by Southland Drive to the North, Acadia Drive to the East, Anderson Road to the South, and Macleod Trail to the West. These roads, coupled with the LRT line, provide excellent access from Willow Park to downtown. Maple Ridge is located between Willow Ridge and the Bow River. Willow Park and Maple Ridge were annexed to Calgary in 1956, and developed a decade later. The areas contain a mix of residential, commercial and recreational land uses. These land uses include the nearby Bow River Valley, the city’s pathway system, Southland Mall, the Family Leisure Centre and Fish Creek Provincial Park. There are both public and separate schools in the area.

The Willow Ridge community association is active in providing programming for residents.  There is a playschool for local youngsters, as well as an out of school program. Other groups, and activities, such as the Cubs, Brownies, dog obedience training, yoga, seniors activities and youth soccer take place at the hall as well.  Tennis courts and a skating rink are also located nearby.
