Where to Live in the NW: Rocky Ridge Ranch vs Tuscany

I think people wanting to live in NW Calgary are over-looking a hidden gem when they miss Rocky Ridge Ranch. Don't get me wrong, Tuscany is a great neighbourhood too but Rocky Ridge is a little smaller, a little calmer and has a whole lot to offer.


With an elementary school in neighboring Royal Oak and a 5-9 to be built by 2016 this quiet community is setting-up as THE place to live in the NW. The new C-Train Station on Crowfoot Trail, slated to be open in 2014, is closest to Rocky Ridge, with the park & ride on the RRR side. What's not to love?!


Oh yeah, and access to Wal-Mart and Sobeys off Country Hills Boulevard couldn't be easier. Wanna go to Costco? It's just up the road at Stoney Trail and Sarcee Trail. Access to downtown from Rocky Ridge is direct, Stoney Trail South to the mountains and Stoney Trail North to the Airport. It really is the perfect location in NW Calgary.


But, that's just my opinion, here's some imperical facts about the 2 communities. You can decide for yourself:


Rocky Ridge Ranch Compared to Tuscany NW Calgary


Rocky Ridge Population 2012 - 7,266 in 2,972 dwellings
