Outdoorsy people will certainly enjoy the perks of being in Oakridge, a residential neighbourhood in southwest Calgary. It is near Glenmore Reservoir and Weaselhead Nature Area. The former is popular for sailing and the latter has wonderful hiking trails.
There's more! Southland Leisure Centre is also nearby. It's an entertainment facility that was named the Best Family Recreation Facility in the 2019 Parents' Choice Awards given by Calgary's Child Magazine.
Oakridge was annexed to Calgary in 1956 and was established as a neighbourhood in 1969. It is bordered to the north by 90 Avenue S and 24 Street W to the east. To the west of it is the Tsuu T'ina First Nation Reserve.
