With its pedestrian friendly design, classic small town architecture, landmark community buildings and a thriving main street business centre, McKenzie Towne in southeast Calgary has been called a pioneer of new urbanism.
The major amenities are: the Towne Hall; Prestwick Common (structures, fountain/fire pit); Elgin Hill (the “Ruins”) and toboggan run; Inverness Square (gazebo); the Clock Tower and Clock plus Postal area; Promenade Park (picnic shelter, flags, lighting) and the skateboard park/hockey rink location. There are numerous other amenities located in smaller parks as well.
This 1,300 acre community was developed in 1995 by Brookfield Residential Properties with a different concept from other communities in mind. Most of the amenities owned by the Council were strategically placed throughout the community by the community developer.
There are schools, buses and many great shops within walking distance. This is a perfect place to call home.
