Welcome to Ranchlands
Ranchlands, established in 1977, is located in the centre of Calgary’s northwest. With views of the Rocky Mountains and downtown core, numerous parks, playgrounds, and a 12-hectare natural area, Ranchlands is a desirable family-oriented community.
Natural Area in Ranchlands
The large natural area was set aside to maintain a sense of "ranch land" for residents in the community. The park also preserves geological features called "knobs and kettles." Much of northwest Calgary was once a field of knobs and kettles but Ranchlands Park is among the last remnants left in a natural state. The knobs, which are small, rounded hilltops, and the kettles, which are depressions formed in glacial deposits when a buried block of ice, left behind by a retreating glacier melts, form a field of steeply undulating hills.
The community is served by Ranchlands Community public school and the St. Rita Elementary Catholic school. In addition, the MAC Islamic School also serves the area.
The Ranchlands community centre has a playground, basketball court, and both hockey and leisure skating rinks, making it a great choice for families.
Ranchlands contains numerous strip malls that contain various restaurants, medical clinics, gyms, banks, and other amenities. It is also conveniently located near Crowfoot Crossing. Additionally, Ranchlands is served by three churches: St. James Anglican Church, Westview Baptist Church, and the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses.
Ranchlands is bounded to the north by John Laurie Boulevard, to the east by Sarcee Trail, to the south by Crowchild Trail, and to the west by Nose Hill Drive making it an ideal location no matter your destination. It is also conveniently located near the Crowfoot LRT making transit access a breeze.
