It’s in a Prime Location

Evanston is situated on the Northwest side of Calgary, nestled into the West Nose Creek and Symons Valley area. The area is visually appealing – creeks, ponds, and natural rock bluffs give the grassland unique beauty. The area is practically appealing because of its proximity to the city. Residents of Evanston can quickly reach downtown via Stoney Trail NW, which borders the community.
