Tiffany Gaura wanted her two young kids to be able to easily walk to school without crossing a busy road.
In March, the family moved into the northeast, inner-city community of Bridgeland, two-and-a-half blocks away from the specialized Langevin School – a Calgary Board of Education (CBE) science school.
Meanwhile, Amanda and Jonathan Corson and their two-year-old son will move into a larger home in their Auburn Bay neighbourhood this November, just a short walk from the community's two new elementary schools – one in the Catholic school system, the other public.

McKenzie Lake is one of the older lake communities in Calgary, established in the late 1980s.

A new farmers market set to open just south of Calgary city limits is reimagining the traditional market as a family entertainment venue.
Granary Road will have a variety of shops in its public market, but also an active learning park that is a mash-up of a children's playground and an interpretive centre.
"Parents are always looking for something to do with their children and while we have some amazing attractions in Calgary, there aren't enough," said Jane Walter-Lockwood, director of business development for Granary Road.
