Diamond Cove Community Information
The v-shaped neighborhood of Diamond Cove is a small residential community nestled in between Deerfoot Trail to the north, the Bow River to the east, Queensland to the south, and the Bow Bottom Trail to the west. Though the area was originally designated as an estate community with construction beginning in 1989, Diamond Cove was originally established as a Calgary community in 1991. Residents of the neighborhood benefit from having their own dedicated entrance – accessible only via Bow Bottom Trail roughly 1.5 kilometres north of Canyon Meadows Drive. The population has been maintained at fewer than 1,000 Calgarians with a median household income of $120,000. The properties within the neighborhood are all single family detached homes with the exception of only a few.
Public school students of Diamond Cove attend Haultain Memorial Elementary, Wilma Hansen Junior High, and Lord Beaverbrook Senior High School while Catholic school students attend St. Philip Elementary, St. Bonaventure Junior High, and Bishop Grandin Senior High School.
The neighborhood is overseen by the Queensland/Diamond Cove Community Association which offers a number of recreational opportunities welcoming to all ages. The Bow River and the Douglasbank Park that make up the easternmost border of Diamond Cove has attracted several residents due to the large amount of nature that perpetuates through the area. Other amenities nearby include Lake Bonavista, the Maple Ridge Golf Course, and the Willow Park Golf & Country Club.
Calgary Transit maintains a small collection of stops in the Diamond Cove neighborhood to assist residents that require assistance in making it out to other areas of Calgary.
The neighborhood of Diamond Cove remains a relatively newer community in the southeastern part of the city that is one of the most sought-after in the entirety of Calgary. The escarpment upon which the neighborhood has been established overlooks the Bow River and had been designated by the city as protected in order to maintain the natural characteristics of the area. This protection has lent itself to ensuring the value of properties in Diamond Cove remains high. The close proximity to Fish Creek Provincial Park and all of its recreational opportunities, the direct vehicle routeways to busier parts of Calgary, and the exclusivity of Diamond Cove make it a gem in the neighborhood mosaic that makes up the City of Calgary.
