Strathcona Park, Christie Park and Aspen Woods are located on the western side of Calgary in the city’s SW quadrant. The community names are often referred to as simply Strathcona, Christie and Aspen. The area was annexed from Municipal District of Rockyview in 1956. Strathcona and Christie were developed in the 1980’s; they are located on an elevated plateau that allows for excellent eastward views of Calgary and the Elbow and Bow River Valleys. An extension to Strathcona, called Springhaven, was developed in the late 1990’s.
Development began in Aspen in 2001, which extends westward beyond Strathcona & Christie, enjoying occasional mountain views. All three neighbourhoods are close to Edworthy Park, Glendale Athletic Park, and the Westside Recreation Center. There are both public and Separate schools in the area. The SCA Community Association is very active within the community. The SCA community centre houses the Child’s Garden Preschool and a variety of activities for children, adults and Seniors including martial arts, scouts, dance, bridge, art, fitness classes and more. Community recreation facilities such as the tennis courts, hockey rink, skating pond, and soccer fields are also popular.
