Rock solid: Quarry Park combines residential, retail and commercial real estate into an enticing, well-designed package

"There really isn't anything that compares to Quarry Park in Calgary – the location, the variety of housing types, the strong sense of community and the strong identity with great architectural character," said Glen Deibert, residential director at Remington Development Corp., the developer behind the community.
Situated on a historic quarry site adjacent to the Bow River, Quarry Park graces 400 acres of reclaimed land that features over 90 acres of park land, a 50 acre nature reserve and 10 km of paved walking and cycling paths that weave through the area, connecting to the Bow River pathway system.

While Calgary's downtown is home to some of the biggest companies in the world, Quarry Park in the southeast has become the new kid on the commercial block, and many of those same companies are deciding to call it home instead.
A gravel pit for 50 years, Quarry Park is emerging as one of Calgary's most up and coming "it" communities. In 2005 it began to form as a vision of Remington Development Corp. The mixed-use community includes homes, retail and commercial offerings.
