There’s a reason why Legacy has scooped up Calgary’s Community of the Year Award twice in a row. Here, we share the top 5 reasons why residents love living in Legacy, and why you will too!
#1 – Our Playgrounds
Legacy’s four state-of-the-art playgrounds have rubberized surfaces – the only playgrounds in Calgary to offer this feature – and there are seven more planned for the community.
#2 –Legacy is designed with an active, outdoor lifestyle in mind
We want our residents to love their homes, but we want them to love the natural features even more. Over 15 kilometres of pathways means you can walk or run with ease from one end of the community to the other, on pathways that have green space on either side of them, not just a sidewalks next to homes, connecting you to Legacy’s many parks, playgrounds, ponds and green space. If spending time outdoors is what you love to do, then Legacy is where you need to be.
“I love the feeling of community here, how many parks there are for my kids, and the endless paths for us all to walk and bike on. The ridge is by far our favourite place to go for an evening stroll or a daytime adventure, being able to connect with nature so close to our home is life-giving.” – Legacy Resident
#3 – You live steps from untouched green space
300 acres of developer-protected greenspace borders three sides of Legacy – and this space will remain untouched for generations to enjoy. Just steps from home, you have access to this expansive area ready for exploration. Discover the wooded area with your children. Have a picnic with your family. Make your own path on your bike. Take a walk along the creek or enjoy the mountain views from the ridge. No matter the season, Legacy’s environmental reserve will leave you with a lifetime of memories.
#4 – Shopping is within walking distance
From coffee shops and restaurants to childcare and medical services, Legacy’s four commercial areas make it easy for residents to live their ideal lifestyle. Open now, Legacy Corner and Legacy Village feature a wide range of options for dining and shopping, as well as local services such as dental and medical. Coming soon, Legacy Grove and Township will feature a variety of shopping, grocery, retail and services including Sobeys, Winners, COBS Bread, Starbucks, PetSmart and so much more.
#5 – The Residents of Legacy
Last, but certainly not least, the residents of Legacy are what makes this community such an incredible place to live. This close-knit community is made up of a diverse collection of residents who share values of togetherness, connection and compassion towards one another. Run by residents of Legacy, the Residents Association and Community Association organize four-season recreational, cultural, educational and athletic activities for all ages to enjoy.
“I love that Legacy is a community filled with genuineness, heart, and character! It’s home.” – Legacy Resident
Honourable Mention: Legacy is filled with dogs!
It’s a rare day when you don’t see one of Legacy’s residents walking their dog in the community. Legacy’s large backyards, open green space and walking paths make it the perfect place to own a dog. The good news is that soon there will be an off-leash dog park within walking distance in the neighbouring community Wolf Willow for all our four-legged friends.
“I love the community. Walking in Legacy bring me peace, seeing the mountains, the ponds, and all the people. Ohhh and all the puppies, I love meeting all the dogs in Legacy” – Legacy Resident
