The Community of Cranston

View MLS® Listings in Cranston

The Rocky Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to this former homestead land settled by the Cranston family. The community is perched on a ridge overlooking breathtaking natural surroundings.

Wherever you look there are panoramic mountain, downtown skyline and river valley views. Gentle slopes lead down from Cranston to the Bow River Valley and Fish Creek Provincial Park below. The area is criss-crossed with well-used trails that open up this area.

Fish Creek Park offers birdwatching, hiking and other recreation opportunities. The fishing is world-famous – the Bow River offers anglers Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Rocky Mountain Whitefish and Northern Pike to name a few. Cast a line into the Bow River and see what takes the bait.

Amenities:

Cranston is perfect for families who enjoy and active outdoor lifestyle. There are over 20 acres of parkspace within the first five phases of development and over 2 km of pathways winding throughout the community, connecting various parks and tot-lots. In addition to all of this lush greenspace, residents can quickly access Fish Creek Park via the regional pathway connection at the end of Cranleigh Gate.

Cranston residents can also enjoy Chinook Nature Park, a new park setting located south of the escarpment and a recent addition to Fish Creek Park. Chinook Nature Park provides a natural habitat for native flora and fauna and includes ponds and a dense pattern of grassland, forest and shrubs providing an ideal habitat for birds and other wildlife.

As usual, Doug and Kim did a fantastic job of selling our home. We always recommend them to everyone we know. I am sure we will deal with them again in the future. Thank you!
