Once nothing more than empty land with no development, the residential neighborhood of Coral Springs was first established in 1991 with a unique architectural texture and layout that puts focus on the lake that occupies the community’s center. This Californian theme is unique among Calgary neighborhoods and is a feature enjoyed by many of the 6,000 residents that call Coral Springs home. Found at the eastern edge of the city, Coral Springs is bounded by 64th Avenue to its’ north, McKnight Boulevard to its’ south, 68th Street to its’ west, and 84th Street to its’ east.
Public school students of Coral Springs attend the Chief Justice Milvain elementary, Annie Gale junior high, and James Fowler senior high school while Catholic school students attend Monsignor Hetherington elementary, Blessed John XXIII junior high, and Bishop McNally senior high school.
Coral Springs’ properties are exclusively single-family detached homes with the majority of residents being young families. The community is notable for its’ significant Ismailia population. The lake that sits at the nucleus of the neighborhood is used by residents year-round for swimming, fishing, and boating throughout the summertime and then for skating in the wintertime.
The green space that occupies the community gives it a true small town residential kind of feel while retaining much of that Calgary charm that can be found in faraway pockets of the city. The diverse nature of the residents and the environment established here in Coral Springs means that a prospective resident won’t have to fear dilapidation or gentrification at any point in their lifetime as the neighborhood is well protected.
The Coral Springs Community Association is located at the Don Hartman Northeast Sportsplex and has activities for the whole family to enjoy. There are many amenities in the surrounding neighborhoods as well that are centered on providing family-friendly activities and entertainment year-round. Coral Springs is on its’ way to becoming a favourite spot for new Calgary families and with reason.
Calgary Transit has over a dozen stops spread throughout Coral Springs in order to assist residents who are looking to travel to the downtown core or to other areas of the city.
Coral Springs doesn’t come with the same history as some of Calgary’s antique communities. This is an opportunity for residents from all walks of life to come in, settle down, and create their own. The pioneers of Coral Springs are living there presently and will be working in the coming decades to develop the neighborhood into an even more favorable option for all to enjoy. For those looking at investing in a new Calgary community, Coral Springs is the type of neighborhood you want to look at.
