Rocky Ridge, Calgary neighbourhood overview

Rocky Ridge is north of Crowchild Trail, and west of Rocky Ridge Road, about 1 kilometre west of Stoney Trail. Stoney Trail connects the community to the Trans-Canada Highway, just west of Canada Olympic Park.
Some public school students are being bused to Cochrane's Elizabeth Barrett Elementary, Manachaban Elementary/Junior
High and Cochrane High. New students can also be bused to Dalhousie Elementary, H.D Cartwright Junior High (also in Dalhousie), and Bowness High.
Separate school students are being bused to St. Dominic Elementary in northwest Dalhousie, Brebeuf Junior High near Northland Village Shops, and St. Francis High on Northmount Drive N.W. A separate school is going to be built just east of Rocky Ridge Boulevard.
Crowfoot Town Centre, off Nose Hill Drive, has a Safeway and Revy, restaurants and several auto dealers.
The community has a 3,000-square-foot clubhouse, a pond with paddle boats, and plenty of green space with two tennis courts, a beach volleyball court and a jungle gym facility. There is an annual fee of $250. When the separate school is built, east of Rocky Ridge Rd, there will be two ball diamonds and a soccer field included.
The community is mostly single family homes in a range of styles, with some multi-unit condominiums along Ranchview Rd NW and on the south side of Country Hills Blvd. Rocky Ridge construction began in 1995, with the first phase called Rocky Ridge Ranch, which will eventually have 2,500 homes. All the houses will have a western theme, with vinyl siding (no stucco), stone or river rock facades (no brick) and where appropriate, large front verandas.
