Christie Park Community Information and Description
See Calgary in a way you’ve never seen it before with one of the many exquisite properties in Christie Park. This southwest residential community is found between Strathcona Drive to the north, Sarcee Trail to the east, 17th Avenue to the south, and 69th Street to the west. Originally established as a Calgary community in the early 1990s, Christie Park has now gone on to support a population of over 2,000 residents. The median household income for the neighbourhood is approximately $102,000 and less than 5% of the properties are presently being used for renting purposes.
Christie Park’s public school students attend the community’s own Olympic Heights Elementary before moving on to Vincent Massey Junior High and Ernest Manning Senior High School. Catholic school students, meanwhile, are assigned to attend John Costello Elementary, St. Gregory and/or St. Michael Junior High, and St. Mary’s and/or Bishop Carroll Senior High School.
The neighbourhood of Christie Park was built on an elevated plateau which now allows residents photographic views of downtown Calgary as well as the Bow River Valley. There are a wide range of housing options available though the community does uphold a reputation as a higher-end neighbourhood.
Christie Park benefits from several parks all within a short distance of the community including Edworthy Park, Strathcona Park, and the Optimist Athletic Park. This isn’t the end of the green opportunities that one can explore within the confines of the region as the Strathcona Ravines – a natural environmental reserve – is enclosed in the area as well. Take a tour to see the unique areas exclusive to the Christie Park area and provide yourself with a rare opportunity to see amazing places you never even knew existed.
Those that are seeking shopping trips, local businesses, and more densely populated areas can find some only a few minutes down the Sarcee Trail. There, an Indigo Book store, a Canadian Tire, a GoodLife Fitness, a Superstore, and numerous clothing boutiques are all found.
Calgary Transit maintains several bus stops that can be found along 17th Avenue and Strathcona Drive to accommodate residents who wish to venture to other parts of the city.
With high quality real estate valued at an affordable cost, Christie Park makes for an ideal neighbourhood for naturists and explorers. Get up close and personal with some of Calgary’s greenest places, or simply enjoy the scenery from the comfortable confines of your property. With the Strathcona Ravines retaining an absolute purity in environment perhaps unseen anywhere else in the city, Christie Park makes for a dream spot for many.
