Spotlight on … The Manor Village at Rocky Ridge
As part of our Spotlight series, we feature our Community with Heart in a scenic setting in NW Calgary, The Manor Village at Rocky Ridge.
Inspiring views and open spaces
If you want to be part of a vibrant and active community, yet still enjoy countryside views and a real sense of space, The Manor Village at Rocky Ridge is a must-see. Our senior living community enjoys sweeping views across the countryside to the Bearspaw area of the Bow River and the Rocky Mountains beyond. The Manor Village at Rocky Ridge also enjoys easy access to a wide range of local parks, green spaces and lakeside walks.
Green spaces galore
Situated at 4000 feet above sea level, the Rocky Ridge neighbourhood was first developed just under 20 years ago. The design incorporated a strong commitment to preserving much of the natural beauty and features of the area, including wetlands, woods and the ridge itself.
For example, in the short drive between the junction of Highway 1A and 201 to The Manor Village at Rocky Ridge, you’ll drive past several small parks, and around our own Rocky Vista Park before you even reach our front door! Behind our purpose built retirement community, you’ll discover a traffic-free green space with a walking trail that links directly to Rocky Ridge Park and its lake. In the other direction, the trail leads to our local shops.
Easy access into central Calgary
Our community really does offer the best of both worlds in its location on the north-west edge of Calgary, combining sweeping views with quick and easy access into the city centre via the Calgary Transit CTrain network. Our local station at Tuscany is just a short walk away, with direct trains running on Route 201 on the Red Line into the heart of the city to Centre Street and City Hall. It’s also a convenient way to access events at the University of Calgary campus, the McMahon Stadium (home of the Calgary Stampeders football team) and the North Hill Shopping Centre! Our retirement community is also well served by local bus stops for routes 158, 159 and 169.
Rocky Ridge community groups
The active and friendly Rocky Ridge Ranch community group take pride in offering a wide range of facilities that our Residents can enjoy with their visitors and grandchildren. These include a summer splash pool area, boats on the lake, a tennis and basketball court. The popular Ranch Centre has function rooms that can be hired for big family get-togethers. (We can also host birthday parties and celebration meals for Residents and their families right here at The Manor Village at Rocky Ridge - call us for details!)
New community, new facilities
The growing community at Rocky Ridge will soon be able to enjoy a brand new recreation facility set in a natural park with views of both city and mountains. The curvaceous new building will offer a whole range of year round facilities for sports and activity, including two swimming pools, two ice rinks, and three gyms! Our Residents are also looking forward to exploring the leisure facilities, including a new art gallery, library and a brand new 300 seat theatre.
