Currie highlights role of developers in growth and preservation of Calgary's urban forest

Calgary is a city brimming with natural beauty and vital ecological corridors. Here, prairie grasslands and verdant river valleys are interspersed with ancient stands of aspen trees – some almost 4,000 years old – and 600-year-old forests of Douglas fir.

Despite urbanization and climate change, these forests have thrived and grown. These days, one can also find a selection of non-native tree species, planted by early settlers, current residents, developers and the City, all of which contribute to Calgary's urban forest.

SPONSORED: Families will fall in love with Currie

With plenty of space to run and play, and an envious selection of schools a stone's throw away, the master-planned community of Currie is a perfect fit for families.

Currie’s Victoria Cross Boulevard, a linear park that commemorates recipients of the Victoria Cross, leads to Valour Park, which honours the three branches of the Canadian Armed Forces.

Garrison Woods, Garrison Green and Currie embody Calgary's rich military history

With every passing year, the events of the First and Second World Wars become ever more distant parts of our country's history. Remembrance requires work, and any excuse to think about or discuss these conflicts and the sacrifices of Canadian veterans helps keep their memories alive.

In this context, three southwest Calgary neighbourhoods that wear their military history on their sleeve are especially significant.

Urban living, Currie style

Major infrastructure and landscaping changes pave the way for Currie development


A new, major interchange is in full operation, with infrastructure built and the next stage of the massive Currie mixed-use development ready for launch.


"Last year we were focused on infrastructure. We started and completed the Flanders Avenue interchange," said Chris Elkey, senior director, real estate, Canada Lands Company (CLC), which is overseeing the project. "So that opened last fall. We had a big community event and it was a big success. It's operating. We're going to do the landscaping on it this year but for all intents and purposes it's opening and operating as it was designed to do."
