Evergreen is a community in the South West quadrant in the city of Calgary.
Development began in the early 1990's. The neighbourhood consists mainly of single family homes with some townhoumes.
Lots of green spaces, parks, playgrounds and bike paths conveniently surrounded by nature. Fish Creek Park is directly to the north 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.
Close proximity to Spruce Meadows, with Bridlewood being the neighbour to the south. Neighbours to the east include Shawnessy and Millrise.
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 Shawnessy 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 close to Highway 22X (Spruce Meadows Trail) provides easy access to areas on the east/west spectrum of the city.
