Discovery Ridge Community Background

Discovery Ridge is a residential neighbourhood in the south-west quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is located at the western edge of the city and is bounded by Glenmore Trail to the north, 69 Street W to the east, Rocky View County and the city limits to the west and the Elbow River and Tsuu T’ina first nation reserve to the south.
Long before development, this area was referred to by long time Calgarians as Jackson’s Valley, an isolated valley beside the Sarcee Military Reserve. When development first began in the late 1990s, the community was known as New Discovery and it was originally planned as a gated community, but this idea was later dropped and today, Discovery Ridge can be accessed by the public. Discovery Ridge was a project dreamed up by developer Mac Radford in the early 1990s and later sold.
