Discovery Ridge is a community in the South West area of Calgary and was developed in the late 1990's into the 2000's.
The community consists mainly of single family homes, but also has condos enjoying the beauty.

Nature at your doorstep is a good description of this community with Griffith Woods Natural Environment Park in the community.
Many other green spaces to enjoy outdoor activity in the neighbourhood.
Discovery Ridge is on the western edge of the city and due to this and the natural environment it finds itself in, the only neighbour divided by Glenmore Trail is Springbank Hill.
Due to these natural boundaries, this is a community that does not have traffic running through it, as there are no roads leading to other communities.
Quick access to downtown as Glenmore Trail is the northern border of the community. Glenmore Trail to Crowchild Trail is the route to downtown.
The LRT (Light Rail Transit) can be found just north on 17th Avenue at 69th street.
Also in this location you can find the West Side Recreation centre where many activities can be enjoyed, be it swimming, the gym, skating, hockey or more you can find it at this Recreation Centre.
