Outdoor activities, a friendly vibe and great shopping nearby – who wouldn’t jump at this opportunity? Life at Walden isn’t like other communities. With attractive common spaces, new roads and a well-designed layout, Walden already looks a notch above other neighbourhoods simply from the outside; just wait until you get inside. With everything from townhomes, condos, duplexes, single-family and semi-estate homes, you won’t know how to choose.
This community was designed by none other than Genstar, a local award-winning developer. With a multitude of parks, playgrounds and local amenities merely minutes away, you’ll be out and about day after day exploring new paths, networks and nearby ponds. Only 30 minutes from the city centre, a 10-minute drive to the Shawnessy C-Train station and a hop, skip and a jump to both MacLeod Trail and Stoney Trail, Walden is amazingly accessible. Reach Fish Creek Park in minutes, hightail it out of the city or head to the mountains by skipping all the inner city traffic.
You can see it all for yourself this Saturday, April 27 from 12-5pm at their showhome event, Wanderlust. Peek inside these beautiful new homes and sample some free food truck eats while your kids get their faces painted and you enter to win a Nordic Spa mountain adventure for two! It’s all happening at 33 Walgrove Terrace SE & 8 Walcrest View SE.
Three reasons why Waldenites truly have it all:
- Nature. Walden maintains the perfect combination of urban and natural appeal. With a large pond and three kilometres of walking trails weaving through the community, nature lovers won’t feel claustrophobic during the work week. With close access to Fish Creek Park and the Bow River, bird watching, rock skipping and shore walking at the nearby wetlands area may just be your new favourite pastime.
- Small Town Feel. Waldenites value the ‘peaceful, friendly’ neighbourhood that they have created here. Walking down the street, you can expect regular smiles and waves from your neighbours. Whatever size of home you desire, Walden has something for everyone – and helpful people to make it yours.
- Amenities. Get cozy in Walden, as everything you need is right here. Save-on-Foods, Starbucks, Tim Hortons – you’ll be sipping coffee and picking up fresh bread only minutes after leaving the house. Gather your friends at the local pub, take a trip to the bottle depot, book that much-needed dentist appointment, pick up your prescription from the pharmacy, schedule a day at the spa – do it all, in Walden.
The life of a Waldenite isn’t boring or stuffy like many downtown communities, getting stuck in a monotonous routine in the middle of Calgary’s downtown hustle and bustle. Walden Weekenders enjoy a physically active lifestyle, splitting their time between city living and country exploring. You might enjoy one or all of these adventures come a Friday afternoon as the work week ends and the outdoor explorations begin.
ROAD TRIP TO THE MOUNTAINS
Living in Walden, you will have easy access to major highways, allowing you to beat the city rush and take in that first breath of fresh mountain air quicker than anyone else. Canmore, Banff, Kananaskis, Jasper – here we come!
PICNIC AT THE POND
Grab all your picnic essentials from the nearby amenities so that you can explore Walden’s pond and spend the day at the perfect family picnic spot.
CAPTURE THE MOMENT
Birds, trees, pathways and a new pond make Walden the perfect backdrop as you take your life to the next level. Bring your phone, GoPro or Canon DSLR to capture your memories and keep them close forever.
TREAT MAN’S BEST FRIEND
With Walden’s countless trails running through parks and connecting to larger trail systems, your dog and your exercise routine will love it here.
HIT THE LINKS
Getting on the green any day of the week is easy with Blue Devil next door and Mackenzie Meadows, Sirocco, Priddis Green and Heritage Point golf courses just a short ‘drive’ away.
CYCLE THE SOUTHEAST
Pedal off to the Bow River, Fish Creek Park or Sikome Lake for nearby scenic outings, or simply to grab a cup of coffee at Walden Gate and enjoy the peaceful quiet in the warm sunshine outdoors.
WINE AND DINE
Spicing up date night is easy with fresh ingredients and local wine close by. Top off the evening with a romantic stroll around the neighbourhood, down the network of paths or perhaps to short drive out of the city to gaze up at the bright starry sky.
Start living the adventurous life you want – right here in Calgary. See you at the showhome event this Saturday!
