Strathcona Park is located in the SW quadrant of Calgary. It is one of the original neighbourhoods of what is known as the Westside. Predominantly single family homes from modest to mid price ranges can be found on streets with mature trees.
The neighbourhood derives it’s name from the Strathcona Ravines Park, which is completely surrounded by the communities of Strathcona and Christie Park. The 23 hectares of ravines were set aside as an environmental reserve when the communities were developed during the 1970s. The community and the ravines were named after Lord Strathcona. The preservation of this environmental reserve / park has resulted in a natural gem in the middle of a suburban community.
Good access to downtown is provided by Bow Trail and the West LRT station is only blocks south on 69th Street where the very popuar Westside Recreation Centre is also located.
Other established Westside neighbourhoods include Christie Park to the south and Coach Hill to the north while the newer areas of West Springs, Aspen Woods and Springbank Hill can be found to the west.
