Eagle Ridge is not really known for its eagle population. However, there is plenty of magnificent views within the community. It's quite secluded from other neighbourhoods as it is on the peninsula in Glenmore Reservoir. It is surrounded by recreational waterways and a lot of green spaces and public parks.
The neighbourhood is quite small. It was established in 1960. It is also part of a group of 10 communities in Calgary considered as "Heritage." It is adjacent to the Heritage Park Historical Village, which is a 127-acre parkland on the Glenmore Reservoir banks. Heritage Park is Canada's second largest living history museum.
Since it is on a peninsual, Eagle Ridge has a natural border to the north, west, and south with the reservoir. To the east, it is bordered by 14 Street W.
