McKenzie Towne has many charms. Whether it be the nostalgic style of the homes from years long past or the beautiful SE Calgary landscape this neighbourhood is situated in, this community is growing ever more popular amongst Calgarians. McKenzie Towne sports a number of features conducive to family life and I’d like to highlight a few of them in this article.
Countless North American families are enchanted by the idea of small town life. Finding a neighbourhood that has the small town charm and also provides the big city convenience seems impossible at times. But located just 20 minutes south of Calgary’s city centre, McKenzie Towne whisks residents away to a time where community meant something. Let’s take a closer look at why that is:
McKenzie Towne Hall is located right in the heart of the neighborhood. This community council is responsible for organizing a ton of great events all year round, for all age groups. And the greatest part about these events is that while they’re entertaining, they’re also putting you in touch with your neighbours. This social cohesion is one of the reasons why I think this neighborhood is really safe. For a full list of the events going on in McKenzie Towne, click here.
The McKenzie Towne School (K-4) takes its name from the community it makes its home in. Many families choose to settle down in the neigbourhood because it provides their kids with access to this particular school. The central location of the school puts it in a great position to service all of the kids in the community.
For those who enjoy an active lifestyle, you’re in good hands. When it comes to recreational activities, there’s always something going on. The McKenzie Towne branch of Goodlife Fitness and the McKenzie Towne Hall provide excellent workout spaces for active people of all levels. If the gym isn’t your scene, there are plenty of great golf courses and trails in close proximity to the neighbourhood that provide another avenue for recreation. Or, if you prefer to stay in the community, picture yourself running laps around the gorgeous Inverness Pond. Better yet, do it! It’s very energizing.
McKenzie Towne shopping is known all around SE Calgary. This thriving commercial district known as High Street attracts residents from adjacent neighbourhoods on a daily basis. Among these great shops are San Remo Ristorante where you can get your Italian food fix, Boundless Dance Studio where you can enroll your budding ballerina, and McKenzie Dental where you can take care of your pearly whites.
