Cranston Real Estate
Find The Sweet, Bright Side Of Life In a Cranston Home
If you and your family are looking for a beautifully developed community that was designed with nature in mind, look no further than the Deep South Calgary community of Cranston. The community of Cranston is named after Archibald Cranston, who moved west from Ontario in 1901 and homesteaded on the land a year later. His family farmed the land where the community of Cranston now sits until 1976.
This community is located at the southeast junction of Stoney Trail and Deerfoot Trail, which makes commuting to Downtown Calgary a short 25 minute drive. Cranston is perched between the Bow River to the west and Deerfoot Trail to the east, with its northern boundary marked by Stony Trail to the north. Cranston's neighbouring communities include Auburn Bay and Seton across the Deerfoot to the east, McKenzie Lake just past Stony Trail to the north, and Chaparral Valley on the other side of the river.
Perhaps one of the most defining features of the community of Cranston is the natural beauty which surrounds it. Cranston homes overlook Fish Creek Park and features exquisit views of the mountains to the west.
Cranston Offers a Soothing Retreat From Your Busy City Life
They say natural beauty centres the mind and soothes the heart, so it is no surprise that the southeast Calgary community of Cranston is growing in popularity. Out here, it is easy to take a moment and enjoy the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, take a riverside walk near the Bow River, or simply enjoy living the good life in a peaceful and natural setting.
Cranston has everything for a family: Active and engaged neighbours, a nearby YMCA, the South Health Campus, two schools and another being built. Cranston Residents' Century Hall is a resident favourite: It features an outdoor ice hockey rink, tennis and basketball courts, and a splash park!
Cranston also satisfies outdoor enthusiasts, the area features an extensive pathway which connects to Fish Creek Park and is suitable for walking, running, or cycling. Cranston residents enjoy access to the Bow River, a world class Blue Ribbon trout fishing destination with approximately 2,500 trout per mile, just a short walk to the river's edge.
