Canyon Meadows is a great SW Calgary neighbourhood to raise kids and fully enjoy recreation and downtime, offering some really unique amenities for all ages. For outdoor recreation you can’t beat Fish Creek Provincial Park, one of the largest urban parks in North America, measuring over three times the size of Vancouver’s Stanley Park! It boasts over 80 km of paved and unpaved pedestrian and bicycle paths, Bow Valley Ranch, and a huge variety of day-use facilities from picnic tables, firepits and cooking shelters, to a concession, amphitheatre, and playground. A highlight is man-made Lake Sikome, popular for both swimming and boating.
Canyon Meadows Golf & Country Club, a premier private golf club, is among the top courses in the province. This 18-hole, 200-acre championship course originally opened in 1957 and now offers five sets of tees, USGA greens, a fully renovated Clubhouse, new Golf Services Centre and extensive indoor and outdoor practice facilities. Group and private lessons are available for all levels.
Southcentre Mall is one of the largest shopping malls in Calgary with approximately 190 stores and services plus South Calgary’s Ticketmaster, Visitor Information Centre, two children’s play areas and free wifi. Indulge in fashion from Talbots to Lululemon to Baby Gap or take a break for lunch or dinner at your choice of restaurants or a quick bite at the food court eateries.
Canyon Meadows Cinemas is a 10-screen multiplex theatre perfect for your budget. Catch second-run favourites and just-missed current releases for only $5. Designed with entertainment in mind, the facility offers a party room for 4-12 children, theatre rental and video game parties on the big screen. For tastes that run a little more highbrow, Royal Opera House performances of everything, from Carmen to Tosca, are shown each month.
