Map of Willow Park

Willow Park is a well-established community in southeast Calgary. It is bordered by Southland Drive to the north, Anderson Road to the south, Macleod Trail to the west and the community of Maple Ridge to the east. Established in the 1960’s, Willow Park is a tranquil, family oriented mixed neighborhood that features boulevards lined with mature trees, plus an abundance of parks and green space. The community was developed around the Willow Park Golf & Country Club, one of the city’s leading private golf facilities – the golf course intersects the community from east to west. Willow Park has a population of 5,300 (2011) and is a combination of residential, commercial and recreational land uses. The majority of homes are single detached and average in price around $559,000. Willow Park Estates properties surround the golf course and are generally priced in excess of $1million.

Amenities are plentiful for Willow Park residents with excellent shopping facilities located right in the community at the Willow Park Shopping Village. Southcentre Mall is the largest shopping centre in the area and is just minutes away on Anderson Rd, while Macleod Trail offers a huge variety of “big box” stores and other retail outlets, restaurants, and theatre complexes.  Willow Park commuters have the convenience of LRT stations at Anderson Rd and Southland Drive, as well as Macleod Trail for an easy drive to downtown Calgary.

One of the other great qualities of Willow Park is the number of schools that are within walking distance. Willow Park is served by several elementary and junior high schools; Fred Seymour Elementary, Willow Park Elementary, Maple Ridge Elementary, St. William Elementary, St. Cecelia (Fr.), R.T. Alderman Junior High, Fairview (Fr.) St. Bonaventure Junior High and Ecole St. Matthew (Fr.).  Designated senior high schools include Lord Beaverbrook Dr. E.P. Scarlett (Fr.) and Bishop Grandin.

Willow Park and Maple Ridge combined make up the larger community of Willow Ridge, and share the same community association. The busy community centre offers a variety of programs and activities for residents of all ages, such as out of school and preschool programs, Cubs, Brownies, activities for seniors, yoga and soccer. There are also tennis courts and a skating rink for residents to enjoy. The Trico Centre for Family Wellness is also very handy and offers fitness, aquatics, skating and hockey programs and much more. Fish Creek Provincial Park and the Bow River pathway system offer recreational opportunities the year round.
