Walden Community Background
Walden is a residential neighbourhood in the south-east quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is located near the southern edge of the city, south of 194 Avenue S.E. and the community of Chaparral. To the east it is bordered by the Bow River Valley, to the south by the community of Legacy, and to the west by Macleod Trail.
The community covers 620 acres (2.5 km2), and is named after Walden, a book by Henry David Thoreau. When completed, Walden will consist of three villages, a 160-acre (0.65 km2) park system, and a nine-hole golf course.

Tranquil parks and open spaces. A ribbon pathway framed by stands of preserved trees. Traffic-calming devices that promote walking and biking. A naturalized wetland and clear-water pond. These are just a few of the features through which Walden holds tight to its natural legacy.
Blossoming amid the pristine setting is an energetic, amenity-rich village centre designed to enrich your urban lifestyle with retail conveniences and recreational delights. The amenities of neighbouring Lake Chaparral and Shawnessy Town Centre further enhance Walden’s emphasis on effortless living.
Whether the home you’re seeking is larger, smaller or your very first, the Walden philosophy is all about choice. You’ll find condominiums, townhomes, semi-detached and single-family, all united by distinctively original fusion architecture that coexists peacefully within the community’s natural setting.
