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.

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.
