Cranston is a community in the South East quadrant of the city of Calgary.
The community development began in the early 2000's and was named after the family who owned the land prior to development.
The community consists mainly of single family homes with some multi family residences.
Lots of parks and playgrounds to be enjoyed, and ideally surrounded by Fish Creek Park to the north and west of the community.
Fish Creek Park is one of Canada's largest urban parks. Boundaries to the west is the T'suu Tina Nation Land and to the east is the Bow River.
So many things to enjoy at Fish Creek Park. There is simply so much beauty and tranquility and all so close to and/or connected to so many communities.
There is the Sikome Aquatic Facility, which is a man made lake opened from June to September of each year.
There are picnic sites and lots of pathways and trails to enjoy.
As well, you can find the Bow Valley Ranch Visitors Centre and the Fish Creek Environmental Learning Centre.
Neighbours to the east are Auburn Bay, divided by Deerfoot Trail and McKenzie Lake to the north divided by Highway 22X (Marquis of Lorne Trail)
Highway 22X (Marquis of Lorne Trail) provides quick access to Deerfoot Trail, which is currently the quickest route to downtown.
