If you drive through the northwest quadrant of Calgary you’ll run into one of the newest communities called Tuscany. This development was originally created by Carma and it offers a variety of housing options that include low-rise condos, townhouses and single-family detached homes. Some of these residences offer a spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains, Canada Olympic Park and the Bow River valley.
The neighbourhood is situated on the northwest border of Calgary and offers a quiet suburb experience to its residents. Some of the amenities offered here include the YMCA, the Tuscany Club, shopping at its finest at Crowfoot Centre, regional parks with tot lots and the City of Calgary's biking path. The area is also close to the University, McMahon Stadium and the Calgary Foothills General Hospital. There are many schools close by including elementary, junior and senior high schools.
The community of Tuscany was first established back in 1994 and ever since the growth rate has been phenomenal. It's situated on an elevated plateau and could be considered a family-oriented area. There are, however, a few residences for seniors along with condos that are perfect for a single person or a couple. This is a great place for anyone that wants to escape the excitement of the city by putting their roots down in one of Calgary's finest suburbs.
The Tuscany Club Community Association keeps residents busy with fun events and activities for people of all ages. For those that need to commute into the downtown core of Calgary, the new ring road along Crowchild Trail and Stony Trail gets you there quickly.
The community association in Tuscany offers recreational activities and events, addresses community issues and provides representation for civic matters. Membership in the association also supports the community publication called the Tuscany Sun, which keeps residents in the area up-to-date on the latest news and events.
Community events are alive and well in this part of Calgary and include a community garden, a Tuscany book swap, art projects, family activities, the Tuscany Harvest Festival and much more. If you're looking for an exciting place to live in Calgary and don't want to be too close to the downtown area, Tuscany is a beautiful place to call home.
