Map of New Brighton

New Brighton is a family- oriented neighbourhood in the south-east Calgary with the majority of homes being built later than 2003. Designed with the quaint English countryside in mind, New Brighton’s homes feature traditional English architecture with modern flair setting it apart from other Calgary neighbourhoods. Distinctively “old English” touches such as masonry and latticework, dormer windows and decorative shutters are characteristic in the variety of single family and mutli-family homes that are offered, with prices starting at $200.000. Exclusive estate walkout homes that back onto New Brighton’s Central Park start at $500.000.

The central gathering place in the community is the New Brighton Club. The 6,600 square foot facility is managed by the New Brighton Resident’s Association. The Association offers many popular and affordable recreational programs for the whole family. The facility has several multi-purpose rooms and studio space for fitness programs and for other special events. Residents can also enjoy marvellous panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains from the New Brighton Club patio and deck!  

With the 20 acre central park and 12 acre pond, New Brighton families can stay active year round with the waterpark, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts in summer, and the hockey rink and skating pond in the winter. Membership in the New Brighton Club is mandatory with the purchase of a home. The New Brighton Residents Association employs a full-time recreational programmer to organize activities for residents.

McKenzie Towne’s High Street is just minutes away from New Brighton and offers a variety of shops and services. A major shopping centre is being built in the neighboring community of Seton and Calgary’s newest hospital, the South Health Campus is located in Seton as well.

While there are no schools within New Brighton at this time, there are numerous options for families in the public, Catholic and French immersion streams. The Calgary Board of Education has in its capital plan (2012-2015) the construction of new schools in New Brighton including an elementary and a middle school. In the meantime, students can attend these schools:

Elementary: Acadia, David Thompson (Gr. 5-6), Sam Livingston (Fr.), St. Albert the Great, St. Cecelia (Fr.) Junior High: David Thompson, Fairview (Fr.), St. Matthew (Fr.), St. Albert the Great Senior High: Lord Beaverbrook, Dr. E.P. Scarlett (Fr.), Bishop Grandin.

New Brighton is conveniently located just east of Deerfoot Trail, making access to the downtown core, airport and other amenities quick and easy. A trip to Kananaskis Country is a breeze via Marquis of Lorne Trail. The population of New Brighton in 2011 was just over 7,000 with a projected population of roughly 13,000 when construction of the community is expected to be complete in 2015.
