Posted on May 7, 2018 by Michelle Lefurgey

Community Spotlight: Legacy Family Featured ImageOne of the most attractive features of Legacy is its proximity to the rapidly-growing south Calgary area. Families looking for a connected community full of paths and trails (that make it easier to spend lots of time outside) will find a lot of satisfaction here.

Just a few of the amenities that help make Legacy a superior place to call home include fun playgrounds, a community garden, and a pretty environmental reserve. 

Nearby shopping centres and schools also help make this community ideal for those that like to have everything close at hand.

Natural Surroundings For All to Enjoy

Living in Legacy is associated with having access to three existing playgrounds that will encourage your kids to get out and play. The environmental reserve hosts 15 km of developed walking trails with open meadows and ponds.

Nearby Shopping and Restaurants

A planned 800,000 square foot shopping centre will provide plenty of shopping and restaurant opportunities for all without having to leave the community. Heritage Shopping Plaza is a few minutes' drive and has a great selection of stores to suit your needs. Several popular family-oriented restaurants including IHOP are handily located along Routes 2A and 22X. 

Residents who enjoy serious mall crawls or the excitement of holiday shopping will find several options within a few minutes of Legacy. Selections include toy stores, high-end jewellers, movie theatres, and popular coffee shops. With so many places to visit nearby, you'll spend less time on the road and have more time to spend in your new home.

No matter whether you do mostly smaller fill-in trips or big stock-up trips, there are several convenient grocery stores. Grocery stores near Legacy include Safeway and Sobeys. You'll find it easy to buy fresh produce and meat at good prices with these options.

And Recreation!

Fishing enthusiasts looking for a fun day out will want to check out Fly Fishing Calgary for a fun time. Priddis View Farms is a great place for kids to enjoy some time around horses. Heritage Park Historical Village combines the most of a history museum with seasonal reenactments that will delight all ages.

Science buffs looking for a less usual attraction will want to stop by the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory to learn more about the wonders of space. This is an experience that visitors of all ages will learn something valuable from during their trip. One thing that visitors can feel confident about is that this experience is never boring.

Even better, this year All Saints High School will be opening right in the neighbourhood.
