Established in 1993 (community association formed in 1995) and has grown into a comfortable community in the center of many amenities, schools and with easy access to the rest of city.
Like Calgary itself and many communities that make up this great city, the name has its origin from Scotland.
The name of this community is more likely descriptive of its prominent position overlooking the city rather than named for the place in Scotland, but an indirect connection with the Orkney Islands cannot be ruled out. The name also reflects the names of other geographical features close to Calgary: Citadel Pass, Citadel Peak and Citadel Lake.
Our Citadel certainly does occupy a prominent position in the city at 1,255 m (4,117 Ft) with stunning vistas and a prominent vantage point to other areas surrounding it. Downtown and the beautiful Rocky Mountains, plus ravine and Hamptons golf course are on full display throughout the community.
Green spaces (white space when this picture was taken) abound in Citadel with an extensive pathway system where families gather and residents can go for a leisurely stroll or jog. Plus, well used parks with ball diamonds and soccer fields encompass the district creating a robust recreational element.
One of the great advantages of Citadel, is that there is a full range of home options for potential residents at any phase of their life. From starter homes to multi-family as well as single-family to estate, Citadel is a community of great variety in all shapes and forms.
