Oakridge is a community in the South West quadrant of the city of Calgary.
The community was developed in the late 1960's and consists mainly of single family homes but also has condos and townhouses.
Excellent location as it is just south of South Glenmore Park across the road that divides the two being 90th Avenue SW.
South Glenmore Park has many outdoor activities for all to enjoy. There is a water spray park, playgrounds, picnic areas, bike and hike trails, sailing and in the winter excellent cross country skiing trails.
Excellent bus service with the community being on the south side of 90th Avenue SW and just west of 14th Street SW, which also provides residents with quick access to downtown.
Shopping in the community as well as at Glenmore Landing which is on the corner or 14th Street SW and 90th Avenue SW. However, both the Chinook Centre and South Centre malls are a short drive away.
Schools can be found in the area and in the neighbouring communities.
