Found at the extreme western edge of the city, Lynx Ridge is a residential subdivision presently being developed after originally being annexed to the city in 2005. Tucked in between the Twelve Mile Coulee Road and to the south by the Bow River, Lynx Ridge is found just at city limits. There is presently no commercial district near Lynx Ridge for the mere reason that the subdivision is still in development. Lucky the nearby Rocky Ridge and Tuscany neighbourhoods have several commercial services available. The Lynx Ridge Golf Club winds its’ way through the neighbourhood which is of value to many of the residents. With several half acre estate lots surrounded by majestic views of the Rocky Mountains and downtown Calgary, this residential community is primarily custom-built properties with each home being tailored due to the area.

Though there aren’t any schools set up in the area, public school students are attended to at either Tuscany elementary, Twelve Mile Coulee elementary, or W.O. Mitchell elementary depending on where the students are situated in the neighbourhood. They are then deferred upon graduation to Twelve Mile Coulee junior high and then  Bowness senior high school.

Catholic school students in Lynx Ridge are looked after in a similar manner at Holy Spirit elementary followed by St. Thomas junior and senior high.

The majority of Lynx Ridge’s residents have transportation as Calgary Transit has yet to grant the area service though that is in the city’s plans in the upcoming years as development continues to occur.

The golf course acts largely as a backyard to the majority of the properties in Lynx Ridge where new neighbours continue to filter in on the estates every year. The major attraction that many acknowledge is the privacy afforded residents. Lynx Ridge offers high quality living in a friendly and dynamic community that acts as a quiet escape from the hub of Calgary.

Lynx Ridge is one of Calgary’s undiscovered jewels and an investment in a property here means a future well spent.
