Love of the land: extensive amenities and green spaces make Ranchlands a secret gem in Calgary's northwest

Located at the confluence of Nose Hill Drive and Crowchild Trail in Calgary's northwest, the community of Ranchlands – developed in the 1970s – retains some of the unique, natural features of its namesake ranching lands.

In the centre of the community, Ranchlands Park sprawls across 12 hectares and provides examples of some of the last remnants of the typical northwest geological formations known as knobs and kettles. Retreating glacial deposits of ice carved these small rounded hilltops (knobs) and depressions (kettles). Much of Calgary's northwest featured these fields of undulating hills before development reshaped the landscape.

Commute conundrum

Although workplaces are scattered all across the city, a large number of Calgarians still work in the downtown core. These people all end up in the same place at the end of their morning commute, but their methods of transportation, and the time it takes them to get to work, vary wildly depending on their starting point. CREB®Now talked to a number of downtown commuters from different parts of the city to find out how they get downtown, how long it usually takes and what they like or dislike most about their commute.
