Discovery Ridge, Calgary
Discovery Ridge is a residential neighbourhood in the south-west quadrant of
Calgary, Alberta. It is located at the western edge of the city and is bounded by
Glenmore Trail to the north, 69 Street W to the east, Rocky View County and the
city limits to the west and the Elbow River and Tsuu T'ina first nation reserve
to the south.
When development first began in the late 1990s, the community was known as
New Discovery and it was originally planned as a gated community, but this idea
was later dropped and today, Discovery Ridge can be accessed by the public.
Discovery Ridge was a project dreamed up by developer Mac Radford in the early 1990's and later sold.
It is represented in the Calgary City Council by Ward 6 Alderman Richard
