August 20, 2018 | by QualicoCommunities
Northwest Calgary is growing at a rapid rate. In the heart of the city’s northwest, the community of Evanston offers residents an environment where families can thrive. With schools, shopping, dining and recreation all designed around the concept of sustainable living, Evanston is an established community that keeps you close to every comfort you may need.
For families, living in close proximity to schools is of paramount importance. Evanston was designed to support growing families by providing them with every necessity possible; including schools. Evanston is currently home to two schools; Kenneth D. Taylor, a K-4 school and Our Lady of Grace, a Catholic K-9 school and there are 12 other schools all within a 20 minute drive. Best of all, a third school has recently been approved! Evanston will be home to a K-6 Catholic school in the near future as well.
For even younger children, there are still learning opportunities abound as Grey Matter Montessori preschool and kindergarten help get your kids started on their path of learning.
Communities need to be more than simply a place to live. They need to be somewhere where residents can get outside and interact with their environment for a healthy, active lifestyle. Active living is easy in Evanston as the community has over 6 kilometers of walking and bike paths, 16 parks and 7 playgrounds with picnic areas as well as a sheltered gazebo. Evanston is also conveniently located next to the natural beauty and grasslands of the Symons Valley and West Nose Creek areas.
When it gets cold outside and you’re looking for ways to be active indoors, Evanston has that too! With a yoga studio in the Towne Centre, 4 other gyms all within a 5 minute drive and two recreation centres only 15 minutes away, there’s no excuse for skipping a workout. Evanston is an established community that comes with established amenities to promote active living.
Family dinners at home are precious, but sometimes it’s nice to get out of the house and dine out for a change. No matter your palette, Evanston has exactly what you need to satisfy your hunger! Evanston has fast food options such as KFC, Popeye’s, Subway, Dairy Queen and Little Caesars, but the community also features some delicious, more intimate restaurants like Boston Pizza, JP’s INdian Bistro and the Bro’Kin Yolk. It’s always easy to grab a bite in Evanston.
Wish you didn’t have to drive across the city to do all of your shopping? In Evanston, you don’t have to! The community has 28 different shops throughout including its very own Towne Centre that is anchored by a Sobeys and Shoppers Drug Mart. Evanston also provides its residents with a barber shop, pet store, salon and banking options to make life easier for everyone. If you’re looking for a bigger shopping spree or you’re gearing up for back to school season, Evanston’s prime northwest location is near Stoney Trail; providing easy access to CrossIron Mills for those special things you can’t get in the community.
When looking for a community to call home, accessibility is always a top consideration. Evanston provides unparalleled accessibility in Calgary’s northwest. Evanston has easy access to some of Calgary’s major roads including Beddington Trail, Deerfoot Trail, Country Hills Blvd. and Stoney Trail. Evanston is also just a short 15 minute drive from the airport for when you’re heading away on a trip or when family is coming to visit.
Even though some of the largest roads are easily accessible, the community is still removed from all the noise and congestion of a major highway! This means that you won’t be disturbed by loud noise when you’re trying to relax at home.
From young to old, Evanston is a community that was designed for families. Nothing is more convenient for parents than to have a reliable daycare service for their little ones to spend the day at while they head off to work. Evanston is home to 4 different daycares with 4 more within a short 10 minute drive! This offers parents great convenience while also safely keeping their children supervised in the community. When it comes to families, Evanston has everything covered.
