Development began in the mid 1980's and consists mainly of single family homes. Evergreen Estates is a natural combination with Shawnee Slopes.
Lots of green spaces, parks, playgrounds and bike paths conveniently surrounded by nature. Fish Creek Park is directly to the north of the community.

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, however the neighbours to the south include Evergreen and Millrise, while the community of Midnapore is directly to the east of the neighbourhood, divided by MacLeod Trail.
