The McKelvie Group – What Our Clients Say

Winter is Going

Monday, March 11th at 11:02am


The McKelvie Group knows NW Calgary

Gaining an hour when we “fall back” comes with the far less enjoyable “spring forward.” Missing out on an hour of sleep can really be stressful. But with the cold, cold weather mercifully behind us, the effects of less rest is easier to take when Calgary is rewarded with a spectacularly bright and warm early spring day.

Across from beautiful Bowness Park, is the smaller, quieter Baker Park. Northwest Calgary residents were out in full force, soaking up the sun, enjoying the turquoise glow of the melting river ice and snow and spending time with family, friends and pets.

Check out the video link above and think about visiting either of these great northwest Calgary parks, or any of the other parks and pathways that connect the city and add a welcome and relaxing element to area districts.

Exploring Calgary’s Parks & Pathways- West Nose Creek Park/Confluence Park

W
Exploring this city and taking advantage of all the parks, pathways and green spaces is an absolute pleasure.
Walking, jogging, hiking, running or biking with friends and family is something not to be taken for granted, we have the world’s largest urban pathway system and you need to get out and enjoy it.

West Nose Creek Park/Confluence Park


Lying in northeast Calgary, the park is 73 hectares of paved pathways, trails, off leash area connected by bridges. Bordered by 96th Avenue & Harvest Hills to the north, Beddington Trail to the south, Country Hills golf  course to the west and Deerfoot Trail to the East.
The park is open from 5am to 11pm and has many highlights and natural elements including wide open rolling hills and grasslands and creek, but the most interesting element is the Split Rock.

Split Rock


Once part of a rock formation in Jasper Alberta it was deposited by glaciers thousands of years ago. Split by the expanding and contracting of water freezing and melting. It has also been partially shaped by buffalo rubbing against it remove their heavy winter coats.Stone from the area was used to build many of the historic buildings in Calgary, which was once referred to as “Sandstone City.”

Parking is accessible off Beddington Trail, making for a very convenient and enjoyable experience, which can be followed by stopping by stopping by any of the restaurants in nearby Harvest Hills.

How to Use & Enjoy YYC Transit

Calgary Transit System
Our Mass Transit system is a Great Way to Get Around The City.

Take the train.

For affordability, less stress (especially when the weather is less than idea) Calgary Transit provides a convenient, safe and easy way to get where you want to go.

It’s nice not to have to worry about parking, scraping windows, the stress of winter driving and traffic jams that are a reality of commuting in Calgary.
Sometimes when we don’t know all the ins-and-outs of a topic, we just assume that it is fraught with complexity and hassle.

Mass transit is one of those topics.

The City of Calgary has put together some great information to help people realize that taking the bus/train is all about ease of operation, while providing affordability in an environmentally friendly way.

Commuting everyday may not be possible for you, but using the transit to get to a hockey game at the Saddledome or a concert, sure is an easy way to go. Especially when the average fare is $1.55.
