Why West Springs Is the Perfect Place to Raise a Family

If you're looking for a great place to raise your family in, then there are likely a few key criteria on your list. You will want a neighbourhood with great schools nearby, convenient amenities that make living there a breeze, and areas where you and your family can go out and create lasting memories as you explore new areas or try new activities. West Springs has all three. 


Education is important to young families with children. Parents want to set their kids up for future success and their foundation for higher learning begins early. Luckily, West Springs is home to many fantastic schools for children of all ages, and it's very close to even more top-ranked ones. Some notable nearby schools include Calgary French & International School, Calgary Academy, Webber Academy, and Rundle College. 



Ideally, you want the neighbourhood you live in to be near a bunch of great shops and restaurants so you have a plethora of dining and retail options at your disposal. West Springs has an abundance of such choices. Fine dining enthusiasts will enjoy eating at Vin Room West or Mercato West, while those looking for something a little bit more relaxed can head on over to Fergus & Bix and 722 World Bier Haus. If pizza is what you're craving, the recently opened second Una Pizza + Wine location on Broadcast Avenue SW is a must. Oh, and don't forget about Brekkie! It's a brunch lover's dream. 

There are also a number of convenient retail shops and grocers located in the West 85th shopping plaza, allowing you to run all your errands for the day in record time.


Recreational Opportunities

Aside from all the amazing green spaces located directly in or around Encore at West Grove Estates, West Springs is also right by the world-renowned Canada Olympic Park, operated by WinSport. While a gate pass is a little pricey, it can provide you with immediate access to all the wonderful activities COP has to offer. And once the West Ring Road is finished, you can zip down there in no time at all. 

West Springs is also right by the Paskapoo Slopes. This beautiful area and its extensive trail system are perfect for families looking to explore the wonderful nature we have within our city limits and it is very popular among mountain bikers of all skill levels.
