I would like to highlight some of the creative activities happening in Ward 5. Some of the events can be initiated by The City, but many are by the residents and/or community groups and can be found on my home page under "Ward events calendar".

Ward 5 is located in northeast Calgary bordered by the east city limits, south by 16 Avenue to the west by Deerfoot Trail, north by McKnight Boulevard to Métis Trail then north to 80 Avenue south to Falconridge Blvd and then along 64 Avenue East. Ward 5 Boundary Map

NE Calgary is a culturally diverse quadrant of the city with true prairie landscape and farmland to the east and beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains to the west. The ward is comprised of the following communities: Castleridge, Coral Springs, Falconridge, Martindale, Monterey Park, Pineridge, Rundle, Temple, Vista Heights, Whitehorn. The ward also includes the commercial areas of: Horizon, McCall, North Airways, South Airways, Sunridge and Westwinds.

Homes in the NE are largely single-family residences, but also offer some multifamily housing. Residents appreciate the proximity and easy access to the City Centre, Calgary International Airport, Aero Space Museum, C-Train light rail transit system, international shopping, Sunridge Mall, Regional Pathway System, Prairie Winds Park, Don Hart​man Northeast Sportsplex, Village Square Leisure CentreGenesis Centre of Community Wellness, YMCA Saddletowne, two public libraries: Village Square and Saddletowne, and a short drive to the Calgary Zoo and the new TELUS World of Science just to name a few.

If you are a newcomer to Calgary, a researcher, student, business person or maybe just a Calgarian interested in comparing your community with others in the city, these Community Profiles are a good place to begin. Or, you can review the specific demographics of ward 5.
