Saddle Ridge Community Background
Saddle Ridge is a residential neighbourhood in the north-east quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is located at the north-eastern edge of the city, and it is bounded to the north by 96 Avenue N, to the east by 68 Street E, to the south by McKnight Boulevard and to the west by 36 Street E. The Saddle Ridge Industrial Area and Calgary International Airport are located west of the neighbourhood. The community initially consisted of acreages, with an active community association since the 1970s; in the late 1990s, urbanization of the region began and, today, Saddle Ridge primarily refers to the urban community that has developed around the commercial hub formed by Saddletowne Circle, although a number of acreages remain. The western portion of the area is called Saddle Ridge Industrial and is earmarked for future light industrial and commercial development.
Saddle Ridge Community Association
Calgary, AB | T3J 5M1
Saddle Ridge Community Association(SRCA) is a non-profit organization since 1968. The SRCA is the only voice of the Saddle Ridge Community to the Government, Developers, Calgary Parks, and the City of Calgary. The amount of effort already put in by the Board on the land use, soccer program and recycling over the last few years is significant! Community Spirit is another big reason to have our Community Association. Over the past few years the SRCA has held numerous successful community events including the Pond Parties, Casino, Recycling and the Community Clean-ups to name a few. All of this requires the effort and dedication of the SRCA volunteers as well as funding from grants, donations, and your membership fees.
