McKenzie Towne: With A Location Like This Why Live Anywhere Else?
East of Deerfoot trail and north of Stoney Trail, in Calgary's Deep South, lies the charming community of McKenzie Towne. Renowned for its small town atmosphere and neo-traditional planning, McKenzie Towne has all the conveniences of a Calgary community – without sacrificing its small town feel. It's neighboured by the community of McKenzie Lake across the Deerfoot to the west, Auburn Bay south of Stoney Trail, and New Brighton along with Copperfield to the east. McKenzie Towne's convenient location next to two major highways make commuting to Downtown Calgary or the Calgary International Airport a short 25 to 30 minute drive. Regional shopping, hotel, business development, and employment centres are all 5 to 10 minutes away, while the South Calgary Health Campus is only 5 minutes south on 52nd street.
McKenzie Towne Real Estate Features Award-Winning Designs and a Breath Of Fresh Air
McKenzie Towne is the only community where you can leave the hustle and bustle of Metropolitan Calgary and feel as if you've stepped into a picturesque movie set. Perfect for any Calgary family! The community was based on a new urbanist concept which was also used in Seaside Florida to film the Hollywood movie "The Truman Show". This neo-traditionally planned area was also one of the first communities in Calgary designed to be walkable. Such careful planning and development since 1995 earned McKenzie Towne recognition for being one of the Top 26 master planned communities in the world by the Urban Land Institute. McKenzie Towne is composed of four separate districts: The Villages of Prestwick, Elgin, Inverness, as well as the commercial sector of High Street. McKenzie Towne real estate and homes are located within three neighbourhoods: The Villages of Prestwick, Elgin, and Inverness. There are townhouse and apartment style condominiums close to the commercial area of High Street which allow for a walkable lifestyle for those working in the business and retail section of McKenzie Towne.
Living up to its nature of a small village, McKenzie Towne proudly boasts a Fire Hall and two churches, including Calgary's largest Catholic Parish: St. Albert the Great Catholic Parish. There's also a Town Hall! McKenzie Towne Hall features a workout facility, banquet rooms, and the homeowners association (known locally as the McKenzie Towne Council).
Of course no town would be complete without schools and McKenzie Towne has three of them. McKenzie Towne School offers programs for students Kindergarten to Grade 4 in the Public sector, while St. Albert the Great offers Catholic programs for students Kindergarten to Grade 9. There is also a new Public middle school, McKenzie Highlands for grades 5-8 in the heart of the community.
