Calgary’s Southwest has always been a desirable place to live.  Offering some of the city’s most beautiful parks, North Glenmore, the Weaselhead, and Fish Creek, this sought after address is perfect for those who seek nature and outdoor activities. Most of these neighborhoods are older, established communities available only through resale.  However, Genstar brings you one last chance to build your dream home in an area bordering Fish Creek.  

Pathways have been built into Evergreen to maintain green space throughout the community.

Evergreen Community and Evergreen Estates are now in their final phase of development explained Paul Boskovich, development manager for Genstar.  Evergreen Estates began construction in 1990.  Primarily an estate area, this community has been built with high standards in individual house construction as well as architectural design.  Drive through the community and the houses speak for themselves.

Evergreen Community began in 2000 and offers a full range of choices for the home buyer.  Although not an estate area, Genstar has maintained the standards of Evergreen Estates as it expanded into Evergreen Community.   With the care and attention to detail that have gone into the planning and building of this area, the home owners have embraced that and pride of ownership is evident.

Evergreen offers more than just access to nature.  Retail options are abundant in the Shawnessy shopping area.  All of the major grocery stores, restaurants, clothing, books, home and garden, and a host of smaller retailers can be found there.  Banks, registries, AMA, everything you need in one convenient spot. 

Shawnessy also offers a movie theatre, YMCA and the Calgary’s south-most library.  Concerned about health services in the south?  The urgent care centre is just across MacLeod Trail and the new hospital is being built a short drive East on 22x. 

The YMCA, South Library and Catholic High School all located in the Shawnessy Shopping area.

For those who work downtown, the L.R.T. line runs all the way to Bridlewood.  Buses throughout the community take you to transit quickly, or park and ride in the spacious parking areas at the stations.    Prefer to drive, Evergreen offers easy access to MacLeod Trail.

Located on the South side of the river, Evergreen also offers fast and easy access to 22x and Highway 2 south for those who prefer to spend their recreation time away from the city.  Spruce Meadows is also only minutes to the south.  Be in Bragg Creek and the mountains in just 30 minutes.  If Kananaskis or Peter Lougheed Provincial Parks are your favorite escape, access Highway 40 from Longview in less than an hour. 

Fish Creek park brings the serenity of nature to the city.

Genstar’s Evergreen offers the unique opportunity of living in a developed community, with a desirable address, but still building your own home.  Evergreen Estates has been building for 20 years and Evergreen Community for 10.  They both now offer schools, something seriously lacking in Calgary’s new communities.  Elementary and Junior High schools are all in the area and Centennial High is located in Lake Sundance. 

The focus on nature and parks during the planning of these communities means that today there are beautiful pathways, great sports fields and maturing trees.  Bring a picnic, go for a walk and visit these vibrant family and nature oriented neighborhoods.  Only 29 lots remain in Evergreen Estates.   California Homes and Homes by Avi offer exceptional track records and beautiful options for your dream home.  Cardel homes is still offering move-up homes in Evergreen Community.  Contact them today to take opportunity of this last chance to build in a community near Fish Creek Park.
