Bridlewood is a community in the South West quadrant in the city of Calgary.
Development began in the late 1990's. The neighbourhood consists mainly of single family homes with some town homes.
Lots of green spaces, parks, playgrounds and bike paths conveniently surrounded by nature.
It is just north of Spruce Meadows divided by Highway 22X (Spruce Meadows Trail).
Somerset is the community to the east and Evergreen is the community to the north.
Spruce Meadows is recognized around the world as a leading equestrian facility.
However, it is much more than an equestrian centre and enjoyed by all who go there.
LRT (Light Rail Transit) station can be found in the neighbouring community of Somerset close to McLeod Trail.
A short ride on James McKevitt Road to MacLeod Trail provides a quick route to most places in the city.
As well, being just north of Highway 22X (Spruce Meadows Trail) provides easy access to areas on the east/west spectrum of the city.
Shopping is conveniently located in the community as well as in the Somerset and Shawnessy communities along McLeod Trail, such as the Shoppes of Shawnessy, Shawnessy Centre and Shawnessy Village.
Schools are conveniently located in the neighbourhood and surrounding communities.
